's Spring 2011 presentation at New York Fashion Week last September was a splashy, glittery affair, with special celebrity guest Ellen DeGeneres closing the show as her wife Portia de Rossi looked on.
This season, Rich is opening the party to anyone who wants to come—provided they shell out $25 to $35 for a ticket. All proceeds will go to charity, although it's unclear if the purchase of a ticket guarantees a seat—previous Richie Rich and Heatherette shows have had some, shall we say, capacity issues. Rich explained to Fashion Indie,
"Fashion Week is usually very exclusive, invite only, but I'm opening my show up like a rock concert this year, letting people in who never really get a chance to go to a fashion show."
"This year I'm selling tickets to the show
and proceeds go to DOsomething.org as well as Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, which is a charity for little kids who unfortunately have cancer. We have a good friend who passed away in the last couple days…It felt weird at first, selling tickets, but you know if you can help people it makes sense."Browse pictures of Richie Rich (click any thumbnail below):
