A major New York Fashion Week shakeup is in the works, with new court documents stating that the event will no longer take place at Lincoln Center's Damrosch Park after this February. The paperwork, dated last Friday, was first uncovered by local blog A Walk In The Park. It affirms that IMG Fashion Week is prohibited from renewing its contract with Lincoln Center. "Private events in Damrosch Park will now be the exception not the rule according to the far-reaching agreement negotiated between plaintiffs, Lincoln Center and the City over the illegal use of Damrosch Park for non-park purposes," A Walk In the Park writes.

Earlier rumors had indicated that IMG had planned to leave Lincoln Center and move to a new venue in September.
