Postal blue will be in vogue this fall.

One of the nation’s biggest fashion shows will move to the James A. Farley Post Office building in September, organizers announced this week.

Several activities during New York Fashion Week — an annual event that draws top designers, models and celebrities — will be held at Skylight at Moynihan Station, a private venue within the Farley building. The space includes a former mail sorting room and postal dock.

“Moynihan Station is an iconic and historic venue that will provide a unique backdrop for the evolution of New York Fashion Week,” said Howard Zemsky, president of Empire State Development, which owns the space.

The Beaux-Arts style Farley building is near Madison Square Garden. USPS routinely holds events at the Post Office in the building, including the annual kickoff for the Operation Santa program.

Fashion Week was previously held at Lincoln Center. This year’s event is Sept. 10-17.
