The Style Awards Headed to New York
New York Fashion Week is getting an addition: the Style Awards. Thanks to a new deal signed between NBC Universal’s Style Network and Penske Media Corp, the Style Awards will move from Los Angeles to Manhattan this fall.
The Style Awards will be held on Wednesday, September 5, 2012 at Lincoln Center, the home of IMG’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. This is the day before the Spring 2013 shows kick off on Thursday, September 6, 2012. The awards will then air on The Style Network on Thursday, September 13.
For those not familiar, the Style Awards hands out prizes for to male and female style icons, celebrity stylist of the year, makeup artist of the year and, for the first time, a Citizen of Style Award. The celebrity host and a musical guest have yet to be announced. Past winners and presenters at the Style Awards have included Kim and Khloé Kardashian, Lea Michele, Zooey Deschanel, Hayden Panettiere, Eva Longoria and Emily Blunt.
Style Network has always been a big presence at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, so hopefully this move will drive a bigger awareness to the Style Awards.
