William Rast will make Bryant Park tents debut, despite recession

Justin Timberlake’s fashion line William Rast is set to show at the tents at Bryant Park next month, despite the fact that many designers are scaling back their shows this year due to the weak economy.

The line was shown at Roseland Ballroom during fashion week last September, when a strongly rumoured performance from Timberlake did not happen.

According to WWD, the show at the tents is scheduled for February 16, and Timberlake will not be performing. However, he will be there to take the obligatory designer’s bow at the end of the runway show.
