CHEAP AND CHIC: The list of New York Fashion Week’s alternative, cheaper venues with convenient locations is growing longer. Style Lounge, a collaboration between event producer LIVEstyle Entertainment and Elle and Elle Girl magazines, will bow in September at the Show nightclub, located at 135 West 41st Street, just a half a block from Bryant Park. The space offers a 36-foot runway with seating for 230 people and standing space for up to 200 more. Organizers say the $8,000 price tag covers all production costs, except for models and front-of-house public relations. Scheduled to show so far are Costello Tagliapietra, Mara Hoffman, Lynn Park and Zaldy. As of now, StyleLounge is scheduled to be open for business September 8-11.
