(NEW YORK) With a colossal amount of Fashion’s Night Out activities and close to 1,000 retailers participating on September 10, the most massive FNO-related affair is happening on September 7 at Lincoln Center; “Fashion’s Night Out: The Fashion Show” will take place that Tuesday, seating 1,500 spectators with over 150 models walking the runway in designs chosen by Vogue. But the FNO runway event isn’t the only fashion show kicking off Fashion Week; Elle is getting in on the runway action, too! The ELLE Fashion NEXT runway show will take place Thursday, September 9 at 9am at the David Koch Theater at Lincoln Center. Elle editors have selected twenty-two students from the Rhode Island School of Design and each will showcase their designs. The judging panel is a formidable one, made up of designers and Elle editors; Tommy Hilfiger, Derek Lam, Nicole Miller, Waris Ahluwalia, Marcia Patmos, Kate Spade creative director Deborah Lloyd, Joe Zee, Anne Slowey and Alexis Bryan Morgan, among others, will all take their place behind the judge’s panel.
The winner will be announced at the show and awarded the ELLE & RISD Design Award and a $25,000 grant. The semi-finalists will also have a chance to win the ELLE People’s Choice Award and a $10,000 grant, as chosen by Elle.com users (voting goes live on September 9). Additionally, Maybelline New York will present a semi-finalist with a design achievement grant and Kate Spade New York will provide a mentorship award. Elle is also producing a five-part documentary-style websiode series chronicling each student’s journey from RISD to Lincoln Center, featured on Elle.com.
