Erin Wasson Goes Big in Bryant Park for Spring 2010, Takes Subtle Dig at Alexander Wang?

>> Erin Wasson is bringing her first runway show at Bryant Park's biggest Tent venue to 1,100 guests — about twice the number that former collaborator Alexander Wang is expecting.

The show, which is for both her RVCA line and her Low Luv jewelry collection, is set for Friday, Sept. 12 at 8 pm and will feature both a multi-media installation and a "special musical guest to play live on the catwalk" — no further clues available yet on the latter.  Of the move to a primetime venue, Wasson said she is "humbled and honored":

“I’ve spent hours at those Tents as a model, working with some of the icons of American fashion. And meanwhile, I’ve only been doing this design thing for a few seasons — Spring ’10 is season three — and it’s kind of insane to think that I’m getting to show on that same stage."
It's "too predictable" to show "in, like, an abandoned warehouse" »

As for why she chose Bryant Park — this comment is particularly amusing, considering that the season before she started styling for Alexander Wang, he showed in an abandoned warehouse: “It’s really a thrill, to be able to take a venue everyone in the fashion industry knows so well, and bring in new personalities and a new vibe that spin the experience in a different direction.  I mean, it’s almost too predictable to do something ‘cool’ in, like, an abandoned warehouse.  Cool can happen anywhere. It’s a state of mind. That’s the essence of the Erin Wasson x RVCA brand, and there’s no reason not to follow that logic onto the runway.”
