So, we are already cringing at thoughts of Vogue editor and fashion royal Anna Wintour addressing the masses at Macy’s in the New York borough of Queens, of all places. The collision of these two worlds is guaranteed to be the stuff good reality shows are made of. (Too bad they’re no longer filming the soon-to-be released documentary “The September Issue.”) Wintour will be joined by designer and “Project Runway” host Michael Kors on September 10 at the department store, where the duo will be on hand to showcase fall trends and sign t-shirts for the first 50 folks in line. The appearance kicks off the city-wide launch of Fashion’s Night Out, a multi-day “shopping” event meant to jump-start fall retail sales across the country. [Racked]
Question is, will Wintour pull a Cintra Wilson and write about how disturbingly “middle-class” Macy’s is in her next editor’s letter? Only time will tell.
