On July 9th, designer Alexander Wang posted the invitation of a lifetime on Twitter–an invitation to a secret surprise event to be held July 13th at the High Line Stages in NYC. Landlocked in Nashville, I could only dream of what was in store for New York fashionistas. I despondently thumbed through the thousands of #WangSecret tweets over the course of the next 72 hours leading up to the big day.
July 12th, Wang posted an elusive clue on Twitter reading, “The first 20 people in line on Saturday will receive a very useful special prize.” As if the anxiety and curiosity wasn’t taxing enough!
July 13th, the day had arrived. Tuning out the world for the hours preceding 2pm, I couldn’t wait to see what #WangSecret would entail. As promised, the first 20 people who waited in line since the early morning received a prize that was indeed well worth their time.. A huge box.
A huge box? Yes. Turns out, #WangSecret was not just a secret sample sale… It was a FREE sample sale. A grab-everything-and-anything-you-can-carry-in-your-arms-or-stuff-in-your-pants-and-get-out FREE sample sale of men’s and women’s clothing (no bags or shoes) in all sizes. See why the box was so great?
