This week, I attended two fashion events. On Saturday night, Alexander Wang staged a blowout (not literally) at the Mobil gas station on 15th Street. Guests drank Veuve Clicquot and Belvedere and raided the convenience store while Courtney Love performed.
Marc Jacobs' after-party last night was a fashion show in of itself. Sponsored by V Magazine, Lady Gaga sang while the crowd captured her performance on iPhones and BlackBerrys, instantly tweeting their opinions of the scene, and sent photos to their Facebook pages. The VIP area was packed with Janet Jackson, Lindsay Lohan, Rachel Zoe, Toni Braxton, and fashion editors all congratulating Marc.
Tomorrow is back to the tents, and I will report on why Amex, Kraft, and McDonald’s are there with the goal of reaching influencers.
