Having the Olsens and Alexander McQueen show their collections within the same New York Fashion Week is like not having to choose between the Alexa and the PS1 - but better. KCD, the PR firm responsible for both McQueen and McQ, usually holds market appointments for select editors to check out the new McQ collection during New York Fashion Week, but this season they're staging a proper presentation at Milk. Does this mean Alex himself is coming to NYFW pre-Paris? The answer we got is almost better than yes.
It's a maybe, as far as his presence is concerned. But we'll bet it turns to yes before the week is up. More importantly, we're told, "PreFall may be here but it's not 100%," which means we'll get McQ and McQueen in the same place in the same week. If every fashion week surprise this week is on par with that - we won't even need extra cups of coffee.
