There I was still in awe at the amazing pieces I just snagged from the Alexander Wang drop that would not be available to the general public until SS17. I was already planning how I would style my outfit and itching to tell my story, when my focus was pleasantly diverted. I found out that the very next weekend Alexander Wang’s flagship in Soho would be offering a treat to its devoted fans for one weekend only. Any A Wang purchase would receive custom airbrushing! That’s right, so any tee, denim, or hoodie could be pimped out to showcase your own personalized message or an array of A Wang tags. #Wangsquad #Wangfest #Wangover
Of course I jumped at the opportunity!
As soon as the first day of the event arrived, I made sure to get there bright and early. I walked toward their long corner shop over the crooked cobblestones of Mercer Street toward Grand on what was turning out be an overcast day. I came upon a glass door which swung upon at the firm tug from the doorman. Upon entering I received an immediate warm welcome from the beautiful staff equally eager to sport their custom pieces that were being created. The soft hissing sound from the airbrush gun heard in the background was evidence of that. I could no longer tell it was a cloudy day, all was bright! The staff ushered me along the long lines of clothes helping me pick out the perfect piece that I would be pimping out. After a few encounters with the large dressing room and the clothing racks I had found the perfect item. As I approached Noah, the artist behind the airbrush, I jotted down what I wanted him to write. He told me to come back, so I walked out with excitement to get a quick bite. Upon my return the store was packed with shoppers snapping pics of his work. As I made my way past the crowd there they were hanging next to Noah's airbrush easel, my custom pair of A Wang Denim jeans with Slightly Flirty written down the leg. I wasn’t drunk but I was in store for a Wangover! I hope you enjoyed my story and my post:) - xoxo
