Getting to know Stephanie Winston Wolkoff




As New York Fashion Week comes to a end, you are looking at one of the faces that made it so successful. Stephanie Winston Wolkoff is one of the most influential figures in the American fashion industry. In November 2009, Wolkoff became the founding director of Fashion at Lincoln Center, and is overseeing the relocation of New York City’s biannual Mercedes. Her responsibilities include acting as a liaison between Lincoln Center and the fashion industry. In addition, she coordinates an ambitious year-round schedule of fashion-related programming at Lincoln Center.

Before the granddaughter of Harry Winston was Lincoln’s Centre’s New York Fashion Week Director, Wolkoff served as Events Director for the Conde Nast giant, Vogue. Over the course of eleven years, Wolkoff was mentored by Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour in overseeing and producing major events for Vogue, Men’s Vogue, and Vogue Living. Allowing Wolkoff to upkeep her little black book of the international fashion industry’s most renowned designers, such as Tom Ford, Michael Kors, Karl Lagerfeld, Ralph Lauren, Carolina Herrera, and Vera Wang – all whom she sees during this magical week devoted to Fashion.

Know your faces and know your places because New York City is small, but the Fashion world is even smaller.
