Broadway, movie premieres — and New York Fashion Week?
With the shows — even in the midst of a recession — as much about hype and hoopla as hemlines and hairdos, the concept isn’t so far-fetched. After all, there already are enough TV cameras cruising the shows in search of any celebrity — A, B, C or otherwise — to make a Cecil B. DeMille extravaganza. So it’s only a model’s stride-length to the idea that even more extras — and paying ones at that — could be invited, creating a new revenue stream for designers and even more publicity.
