Fashion News: Alex Wang the frat boy, celebs abound in New York

September 12, 2011 |  9:00 am


New York Fashion week is in full force and Booth Moore is reporting on all the most drool-worthy designer shows. Case in point: Alexander Wang sent out a sporty spring/summer 2012 collection that Sirianoklumss2012 referenced BMX and NASCAR. Models wore graphics print, body con ensembles, some even carrying motorcycle helmets done in a floral motif [Los Angeles Times] 

Alexander Wang continued his sporty theme with one of his famous after parties, turning Pier 40 in New York into a raucous frat party. The event attracted Tyler the Creator (who performed) and Bryan Greenberg, who plays a designer in the HBO show "How to Make it in America." Guests enjoyed table tennis, Astroturf and Budweiser. Oh, and the party was sponsored by PlayStation, natch [WWD]

Rumors are swirling about who will replace John Galliano as artistic director at Dior. The latest front-runner seems to be Marc Jacobs, who is reportedly asking for about $10 million to make the big move to the French house [Fashionista] Dellorussoroitfeld   

Heidi Klum and Christian Sirano reunite, Swizz Beats and Alicia Keyes step out and the male hunks from Gossip Girl, Twilight and the New York Jets make an appearance at Tommy Hilfiger. There doesn't seem to be any slowing of the celebrity quotient at New York Fashion Week [People Style Watch]

They may give off an air of mystery for photographers, but Anna Dello Russo, editor-at-large at Vogue Japan, and Carine Roitfeld cut a rug and grabbed the mic, singing karaoke at a party to celebrate Barneys New York's fall campaign collab with Roitfeld [Stylelist]
