I just confirmed a story from one of my friends; who is a Fashion Editor at Vogue Italia.
The security guards at the Rick Owens show closed the doors SUPER early and ended up turning away Emmanuelle Alt, Kate Lanphear, and Diane Pernet; just to name a few.
After the Bruno Pieters show, many of the attendees piled into the Fashion Week transportation bus and began to head over to Rick Owens. When they arrived, they were told by security guards that the doors were closed and they were not allowing anyone else into the show. Someone on the bus ended up calling one of the PR reps and informing them that they were all not being allowed into the show. Get this, the PR rep then comes out to let them in and the security guards tell the him that he is not allowed back in! CRAZINESS!
Standing room guests who did not make it in were so disgusted that they began to throw their invitations at the entrance doors.
Seriouslly, how do you turn away the Fashion Director of Vogue Paris?
