If you weren't one of the hundreds of people to line up for the secret Alexander Wang event at the High Line Stages this month (which turned out to be a free clothing giveaway), no need to worry about what you may have missed: the brand made a video documenting the entire thing.
The play by play goes like this: those allowed entry (roughly 150) were brought into an empty room with a big screen that played a video of Alexander Wang himself letting them know that everything in the next room was free. It got real crazy after that.
Watch the video above for 3 minutes of absolute mania, so much so that some of it looks staged—particularly the dramatic fights for tee shirts. But who knows? Maybe that is how it genuinely went down. Can anyone who made it in confirm?
