Last night, Anna Wintour; the Editor-in-Chief of VOGUE Magazine hosted a Pre-Fashion Week Runway show in support of Hillary Clinton. Ms. Wintour hasn’t been shy about her support of the Democratic Party and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton. Wintour is also reportedly serving as Clinton’s unofficial wardrobe consultant. Need I say more? There are a little more than two months left until the national election, and Anna is doing all she can with her power, and influence to encourage you all to vote the correct way. Just two days before New York Fashion Week starts Anna and her VOGUE team brought together Clinton supporters in the fashion industry for a fundraising rooftop runway show at Spring Studios in New York City.
An evening filled with performances. There was a Black Ballerina Hip-Hop squad from Chicago, a Step team from the Bronx, NY, and a gang of skater guys doing what they do best; Skate. While the evening’s special guest was Chelsea Clinton, the event didn’t lack at all in the means of celebrity. An entire front row was dedicated to designers who were in attendance and apart of the show which included Joseph Altuzarra, Public School’s Dao-Yi Chow & Maxwell Osborne, Eva Fehren, Prabal Gurung, Brett Heyman, Marc Jacobs, Pamela Love, David Neville & Marcus Wainwright, Monique Péan, Tanya Taylor, Thakoon, Diane von Furstenberg, Jason Wu, and Tory Burch. Michael Kors, and Carmelo & LaLa Anthony along with their son were in attendance as well. Several of the designers mentioned showed their support for Mrs. Clinton in advance by designing fundraising merchandise the campaign calls the “Made for History” collection.
Of course, I’m sure you all want to know how did one get into such an event with standing room ticket’s going for $100, front row tickets for $2,700 and there was the “Hillsquad Package”; which consisted of five front row tickets, VIP reception and rooftop party access for $25,000. Well that’s my little secret, and it’s all in the name of campaigning. Click through the images below for more visuals.
