Choreographer Larry Keigwin brings together dance and fashion at Lincoln Center

September 7, 2010 |  4:36 pm


It appears that fashion designers aren't the only people who bow down to Anna Wintour, the icy editor of Vogue magazine. The dance world is also eager to please the all-powerful fashion doyenne, as evidenced by Tuesday's "Fashion’s Night Out," a Vogue event taking place at Lincoln Center.

Choreographer Larry Keigwin has taken on the job of staging the party, which is being billed as the world's largest fashion show featuring more than 150 of the industry’s top models as well as a slew of celebrities. CBS is livestreaming the event from Lincoln Center’s Josie Robertson Plaza.

Keigwin is one of the heads of the New York dance company Keigwin and Company that specializes in flashy, high-energy productions that bridge the worlds of high art and popular entertainment. The company has performed at such notable venues as the Joyce Theatre in New York and the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.

"Fashion's Night Out" is being co-organized by Vogue and SPEC Entertainment. Andre Leon Talley, the magazine's editor at large, is hosting the event along with model-blogger Hanneli Mustaparta.
