Sometimes Fashion with a capital "F" and society/celebs front row stuff....takes a back seat to fun.
We did walk in with a blonde (very pretty too) Kelly Osbourne but as far as VIP entourages...nada.
That "Virgin Spirit" collection was conjured up by designer/DJ Prince Peter---- in an homage to Madonna...
Specifically the 80's "Like A Virgin" Madonna...as captured by lensman Richard Corman---who had limited edition pics lining the wall of the club space at the Hudson Hotel.
Ha Ha...as the models/teens/twenty somethings lined up in a hallway...right before the show...instructions included walking in to the tune "Justify My Love" by the muse of the night.
"Who's Madonna?" ===a query said in earnest. WOW. Hopefully Macy's /Madonna collab announced today--- will get those old people in to buy the garb---the ones who remember her. LOL.
(And Ziggy Stardust...we guess---rings a bell)
Prince Peter makes clothes that just look like the perfect thing to wear going out, or hanging out.
We also liked the band Jessica 6 & Dan Black...who played a short set as intro...with some R&R as the models romped the stage.
