Four months after leaving her position as director of special events at Vogue, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff has accepted a job at Lincoln Center as the venue's director of Fashion Week, Fashion Week Daily reported Tuesday.

September 2010 will mark the biannual event's first time at Lincoln Center's Damrosch Park—after 16 years in Bryant Park—and when planning gets underway for the inaugural event, Winston Wolkoff will serve as a consultant on internal and external coordination between Fashion Week's new home, producers IMG Fashion and the Council of Fashion Designers of America, retailers, and the fashion community at large.

Lincoln Center president Reynold Levy, who Winston Wolkoff will report to directly, had this to say in a statement: “Stephanie's understanding of the specific needs of the fashion industry in tandem with her experience in organizing high-profile, logistically complex events, will be invaluable as a resource in ensuring that Fashion Week's presence at Lincoln Center will be very special—exciting, convenient and efficient.”

Winston Wolkoff is best known for producing the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute gala.
