The fashion industry strives to become more bold and unique every year, with Vogue now introducing what has been categorized as “a live editorial fashion show, street fair, and special surprises,” aptly called “Vogue World.” The famous magazine is celebrating their 130th anniversary this year, which means they had to go above and beyond and create an interactive experience for fashion lovers that exceeds simply watching runway shows. While New York Fashion week is being held less than a month from now, from September 9th to 14th, you’re going to want to take work off on Monday, September 12th for the Vogue World festivities.
The Vogue Magazine Instagram account has posted two teasers for the event, with one photo featuring Hailey Bieber and Lil Nas X alongside a fashionable Lady Liberty. Additionally, they shared a video of Lil Nas X walking around in a fully tartan plaid outfit saying “Where are you going to be September 12th? Vogue World.” The street fair, happening in areas nearby to the various fashion shows, will have “Vogue-curated newsstands” as well as booths for everyone to shop through the runway looks themselves through high-end retailers like NET-A-PORTER and Nordstrom.
One of the most well-known and iconic figures of all things couture is the editor-in-chief of Vogue, Anna Wintour, who shared Vogue’s vision in creating Vogue World this year, saying “Fashion is changing and Vogue is doing something special to celebrate it—a fashion show-meets-street fair that captures the creative spirit of our community now. New York is the perfect place for this—a city that is as restless, as dynamic, and as revitalized as fashion is today.”
Naturally, an event related to New York Fashion Week would not simply be open to the public, and there must be some level of exclusivity in order to encourage the elite to attend. Those interested in snatching up some of the hottest looks for fall right as they are released must first be a member of the Vogue Club, which is $25 a month. Once you are a member, there will be a variety of package options for Vogue World available on August 15th that allow access to different sections of the event as well as fashion show seating options, with free passes available for students on a first-come first-served basis. While the passes range from a $130 standing pass to a $3,000 front row pass, even those who are not able to attend will be able to keep up with the activities through Vogue.com.
