Alexander Wang Brings the Streets of New York to High Fashion

From the misty streets of London to the sunny hills of California, hundreds of trend setters flock to the Big Apple around this time every year to rejoice in the one thing that can bring them together: fashion.

It’s every little boy/girl’s dream to one day experience in person what it’s like to sit in the front row at a fashion show for a designer whose clothes you could only imagine yourself being able to afford. Well, at least it was for me.

Beginning this past weekend, big names such Tom Ford and Calvin Klein took to the runways of New York City to display their upcoming collections for the Spring/Summer of 2014. While most designers choose to play it safe, one thing is for certain: Alexander Wang is not one of them.

From the moment the music is played and the lights are cued, it is evident that this isn’t your everyday high fashion runway show. Known for his unique urban womenswear clothing, Wang does not disappoint when it comes to satisfying his targeted audience.

With world famous onlookers such as rapper Kanye West and singers Justin Bieber, Miguel, and Rihanna, it’s obvious that this collection may not be best fit for your stay-at-home middle-age soccer mom.

Afterwards, stars from around the globe celebrated the show with a private concert from rapper Nicki Minaj.

Check out a few images from the mind blowing show below.
