Tuesday night, Saks unveiled a surprisingly new window on its 49th Street side, featuring not exactly household name designers but aspiring ones. About 30 students from the High School of Fashion Industries sketched bag prototypes for Italian brand Allegri, and a few were lucky enough to have their designs both made and featured in Saks' windows. To celebrate, a slew of fash-insiders including model host Michelle Alves and Allegri's Gian Maria Argentini mingled with the budding designers while indulging in mini grilled cheeses and Svedka lemonade-esque cocktails. Argentini--donning a Fall 2011 protype suit jacket himself--says Allegri will contine to partner with the school on future projects. "After being in this business so long, it's nice to have a fresh view," he explained. In fact, last year's partnership produced rain gear, including boots and umbrellas that are currently available in stores. Check out the window for yourself and pop up to the Allegri department---through October 26, 15% of sales from the Fall 2010 Collections will be donated to the school. Pay fashion forward!
