With Fashion Week rapidly approaching and the city bearing down for it, Bryant Park is becoming a tent city and Fifth Avenue is getting Windexed like every other hour. Join us, won't you, in Fashion Week Foreword as we share glimpses of the city blossoming under the stress of Fashion Week preparation.
Over at 54 Crosby Street, across from Bobby Berk Home, the Anna Sui for Target pop-up shop is slowly taking form. The space will be decorated by David Stark, last seen around these parts making giant cardboard sculptures for West Elm Columbus Circle. And because it's a Gossip Girl–themed collection being promoted on a street where Gossip Girl is often filmed, we're pretty sure at least somebody from the show will be there at either the preview party tomorrow night or the grand opening Thursday morning. For now, though, all that's visible from the street is a storefront covered with mock newspaper printed up by Target. Now that's the kind of attention to detail we like to see.
