About 'The Tents'
In the fashion world, “The Tents” are synonymous with the giant white tents erected every spring and fall during NY Fashion Week. It is here where hundreds of designers showcase their latest collections to fashion editors, buyers and celebrities and where legendary designers have made their first big break. Director James Belzer & Cinematographer Marcus K. Jones catalogue the birth of New York Fashion Week, its expansion and finally its move out of Bryant Park, fashion week’s home since 1993, to Lincoln Center.
Told with exclusive behind the scenes footage and intimate interviews with top fashion players such as: Betsey Johnson, Carolina Herrera, Donna Karan, Glenda Bailey, Hal Rubenstein, Tommy Hilfiger and Zac Posen, to name just a few. Great commentaries are also featured with Carson Kressley, Patrick McMullan, Michael Musto and Robert Verdi, adding humor to the mix.
