(NEW YORK) Total rager alert! Alexander Wang held his MADE-sponsored afterparty, always a must on the September NYFW calendar, even showing up in a bank-robbing nun getup in a cavernous former bank Beaux Arts-Art Nouveau space, done up with a trippy lighting treatment for the occasion. On the docket: a hip set turned out along the lines of Solange Knowles, Lindsay Ellingson, Kate Bosworth, and Jared Leto. The biggest news, especially for nineties rap freaks, was probably Busta Rhymes taking to the stage. There was also a rousing performance by Die Antwoord, the rap-rave group from South Africa, who'd caused a total scene in the front row of Wang’s show hours earlier. Your Daily could've sworn there were small pieces of ceiling drifting down during the bass-crazy numbers, but it could have been fashion week delirium just as easily, right? 

Though Belvedere cocktails were cashed few hours into the bash, but plan B drink option was on the ready for the hard-partying situation: The teller windows reinvented as genius minibars started dispensing petite cups of beer when the vodka ran dry. Beer it was! In the coif SOS department, there was swag to be had from Moroccan Oil (tried and true, cheris: your Daily has had a mini mid-NYFW tress miracle one day later!), and a gal wove through the crowd handing out Nars-filled pouches. The danced-out folks sprawled out on a living room’s worth of leather couches and armchairs in one corner. When it was time for Busta Rhymes toast Wang, it went a little something like this: “If you don’t have a f*ckin’ drink in your hand, just put your f*ckin’ hand up! Whatever you got, put your sh*t up!” Amen for Wang's awesome latest.
