At Jen Awad's Fashion Week show on Sunday, a woman let out a piercing shriek and then was escorted out of the room before the models could even come down the runway. Given the gothic vibe, we wondered if it was staged. Apparently All the Rage had the same question: "For a split second we thought it was part of the show's rocker/emergency room aesthetic antics," they write, "but post-show the designer confirmed she had nothing to do with it." That clears up some of the confusion, but leaves us even more mystified. Got any intel? To the comments, please.
