Whitney Port Wants Your Help Funding Her Next Fashion Show

By Glamour Magazine Aug 2, 2012 3:54PM

If getting all excited and stressed out while watching fashion show planning in action on The City was part one of the essential Whitney Port experience, part two promises to be a much more hands-on affair. The reality-star-turned-designer is asking fans to help fund her upcoming fashion show, and she's offering some very up close & personal perks in return.

 

In what her team is dubbing the first-ever "fan-supported fashion show," Whitney is calling on regular gals like us to kick in some cash to put on her spring 2013 show at New York Fashion Week. We're not sure if Kelly Cutrone approves of the solicitation process or not, but it works like this: Fans can donate as little as $1, in exchange for helping Whitney Eve come to life on the runway.

According to a press release, "Perks range from attending a model fitting for the show, having a one-on-one phone call with Port about the show concept, naming a look that will appear on the runway, attending the makeup and hair tests for the show, or sitting front row and being styled by Port. While the initiative is a means to raise funds, the purpose is also to educate and involve fans in what it takes to put on a runway show."

She's currently got $641 towards her $50,000 goal, and if you want to kick in some cash, you can visit her site (and get a full list of the available "perks"--for $5 she'll send you a personal tweet, and for $450 you can sit front row).

What do you gals think of this concept? Would you donate to a designer whose mission you believe in, or do you find the whole thing kinda wacky? Discuss!
