If you didn’t party at #WANGFEST, then you may have been considered to be an outsider. The cool kids including Kim Kardashian West, Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid and influencers came out to play and we’re not kidding. Alexander Wang’s SS18 runway show took place at 10:30pm in a dead end road in Bushwick, Brooklyn. Can we say grunge?
What sparks the controversy is that some influencers and attendees visiting the show to cover felt that Wang was more concerned about the party instead of the fashion. The collection exhibited a carefree rock and roll grunge to it with an emphasis on the party. We love the party but we do believe that the party should start once the fashion show ends.
Upon meeting Wang in his party bus which he drove through the streets, one of his first questions for her was, “Are you going to WANGFEST!?” We will always love Wang’s designs, fearlessness and cutting edge collections but we’ll have to say we were expecting a bit more from this collection debut at NYFW this year.
