IN A VENUE KEPT SECRET UNTIL THE VERY START, THE ALEXANDER WANG POST-SHOW PARTY WAS ALL THE WAY BACK IN MANHATTAN—THE FALL RUNWAY EVENT, AN INDUSTRIAL SPECTACLE IN ITSELF, WAS HELD IN THE DESOLATE BROOKLYN NAVY YARD
Coming from possibly Wang's most high-tech show yet, we were met with the signal-less snowbanked traffic jame that was the Brooklyn Navy Yard last Saturday, either crawling through traffic in a car or meeting a few blocked passages in a not-so-nearby train station. Luckily, most of the show-goers were smart enough not to wear heels, whether they cabbed, water-taxied or walked to the arena that once held Lady Gaga's first ArtRave. After a rotating runway showed off some heat-activated coats and shin-gaurded shoes (sure to catch on before fall hits), the party on the island beckoned. At the Gilded Lily, on West 15th Street, performance by Sharaya J and BANJI dancers, plus DJ Sets by Baauer and Jesse Marco warmed us all up. Check out the slideshow for images of Alexander Wang, Angel Haze, Karen Elson, Joan Smalls, Kasia Struss, Anna Ewers, Derek Blasberg, and Caroline de Maigret.
