And the Alexander McQueen sample sale is off! Racked reporter Laura Gurfein is on the scene, scoping out the line.
So close, yet so far.
9:02am: Just got to McQueen! There are 37 people in line outside, plus several waiting inside.
9:03am: The first people got here at 11pm last night.
9:10am: The line is divided by stanchions to keep entrances to hotels and garages clear. There are lots of attendants outside monitoring the line.
9:15am: They're slowly moving people up. I guess they're letting them wait inside and maybe getting the bag check process started?
9:16am: Oh we are moving because the doors opened early! They are letting people in very slowly.
9:20am: It's hard to tell how many people are behind me, since the line is sectioned. I'd guess there are still 40 to 50 of us outside.
9:35am: No cell phones allowed.
9:45am: Not much to look through, but impressively priced.
10:00am: Back out again! Now there are about 75 people waiting outside, plus another 25 waiting inside.
10:02am: There's a one-in one-out policy, so it's moving pretty slowly. Plus, when VIP's cut in that holds up the regular line.
Stay tuned for the full report!
