NEW YORK — The High Line is getting a jump on Fashion Week by organizing its very own runway show that will be free and open to the public.
The High Line Back-to-School Teen Fashion Show will be held on Aug. 29 in the Chelsea Market Passage, the somewhat enclosed area on The High Line between West 15th and 16th Streets. Members of Friends of the High Line and 13 area teenagers will curate the catwalk with production assistance and artistic direction from Harlem’s Front Row and Caravan Stylist Studio. Professional models will hit the runway wearing fall looks designed and styled by the teens and such American designers as Boy Meets Girl, Huminska, Junk Food Clothing, LaQuan Smith, TABii Just and Synderela. The underage designers will also select shoes and accessories from HSN.com and Michelle Vale for the show.

"It's really hard sometimes. I think I have a reputation for being really tough and aggressive and pushy but I really am a very shy person who wants to be liked, and that's the conflict constantly. There's something that takes hold - I want people to like me, I don't want to be mean - but if I see something that just cries out to be answered, I go for it," says renowned NBC News correspondent Andrea Mitchell.
