If NYFW is one thing, it's expensive , just ask Whitney Port. The Teen Vogue intern turned The City star turned designer is coming atchya, proverbial hat in hand, asking for money to help with her latest runway show at New York Fashion Week. In an everyman's effort to raise moolah for her line Whitney Eve, she's taken to fundraising site Indiegogo with a video that says, "It's so crazy to get going and very, very hard behind the scenes." We hear ya girl!
While we're kind of #awkward about the star (whose estimated worth is reportedly $3.5 million) asking for funding so publicly, we can certainly understand why it might be difficult for a young designer to get her show on the road (or to Lincoln Center). To rent even the smallest space at the NYFW hub costs $16,500... and goes up from there. So, if you feel for Whit (or want to sit front row at NYFW), you can head over to her donation site to
earn buy prizes that range from a tweet from Whitney to a bracelet to a prime seat at her show. In the meantime, we wish her the best of luck — she currently has $2,741 of the $50,000 goal and her show is already scheduled for September 12 at The Studio, a venue that costs upwards of $30,000.
