Designer Wang goes urban gothic in decaying theater

King of cool Alexander Wang ditched the bright lights and glitzy skyscrapers of New York on Saturday to stage his latest fashion show against a backdrop of crumbling decay in a disused Harlem theater.

Celebrity guests Kylie Jenner, rapper Tyga, Zoe Kravitz and ASAP Rocky were among those whisked to the RKO Hamilton Theater - miles from the ritzy downtown haunts favored by the style glitterati during fashion week.

The former cinema, in what is now a gentrifying neighborhood, has been through previous incarnations as a church, an arena, a disco and retail space, perhaps exemplifying the rise and fall of urban communities hard hit by the collapse of manufacturing across America.
