Club kid fashion institution Heatherette will not be showing at New York Fashion Week in February.
The Heatherette show has become sort of an epic circus event every season, with hundreds being turned away because the show's over capacity. Screaming crowds of baby drag queens, coked-up club kids, and the fashion people are crushed together, hoping that they'll make it inside to witness Lydia Hearst, Amanda Lepore, and (of course) Richie and Traver strutting or dancing or roller skating in a cloud of sparkles and loud music.
And this year, it's not happening. Somewhere, a glittery rainbow unicorn is weeping.
