NEW YORK - Minimalism is about to replace yesteryear's exaggerated shapes in what may be the most trendsetting season since the recession began. It's as if the 100-plus designers showcasing their collections this week at Lincoln Center are reestablishing themselves as leaders. The result? A spring 2011 with major direction.

Welcome!

For years the traditional white tents that invaded Bryant Park symbolized Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week, but in September 2010 the industry moved to a new home: Lincoln Center Plaza. Through September 16, Damrosch Park showcases and celebrates one of the most important events in fashion, and designers reveal what you could potentially be wearing next Spring, because April 2010 looks positively delightful! --Philly.com
