Turns out that special appearance from Diane von Furstenberg at yesterday's sale preview was just the tip of the iceberg. Today, a group of dancing girls in matching leggings put on a show on the balcony above the fitting room. WreakHavocNY reports, "We were lucky enough to be there to experience a special performance by the DVF Rockettes. We can't promise that there will be another show." Our guess is their performance was probably the long-awaited second act of last September's wrap dress flash mob.
Hopefully if you were there, they were a pleasant distraction from the crowd, which they describe like this: "The scene inside resembled the Long Island Expressway at 4pm on a summer Friday. Gridlocking, rubbernecking, and fender-benders were manifesting before our eyes." Stay tuned for our report from inside later this afternoon.
