Not only will there be close to 100,000 guests eagerly making their way to the Center but with the birth of technology, fashion enthusiasts around the globe can watch the collections be unveiled on their smartphones, laptops and all mobile devices. They can receive up to the minute highlights from the most popular shows and tips on what the most popular trends of the season seem to reveal.
Business becomes energized in the city as studies by Fordham University have shown that an estimated $40 million dollars are contributed annually to the Lincoln Center area from Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week guests which only solidifies that this event is a key contributor to the local economy as it generates massive revenue figures.
