Alexander Wang was already set to live-stream his fall show on Saturday via SHOWstudio.com, but the designer has decided to take his "of the people" mentality to the next level. He became "fixated with the idea of projecting the live feed onto a New York City wall," he tells WWD, and at the last minute, he secured the ultimate location: Times Square. (Kimora Lee Simmons was way ahead of the curve on this one.) Wang has reached an agreement with American Eagle to project his show on the giant LED screen that wraps around the AE flagship store at 46th Street and Broadway. Show up at 7 p.m. on Saturday to watch the collection in all its runway glory. (Though the live show starts at 5 p.m., Wang's PR department confirms there will be a slight delay before the Times Square broadcast, to ward off technical issues.) Wang says he expects "a small crowd" and "confused tourists" to show up. Modest words for a guy who can incite snaking lines with a party at a gas station.
