Look out, Vogue! Elle magazine will have its share of Fashion Week, thank you very much. The glossy is set to host the ELLE Fashion NEXT runway show on Thursday, September 9 at Lincoln Center, Daily Front Row reports. But this isn't just another fashion show--it's a competition among 22 Rhode Island School of Design students. Judges, including Tommy Hilfiger, Derek Lam, Nicole Miller, Waris Ahluwalia, Marcia Patmos, Kate Spade Creative Director Deborah Lloyd, Joe Zee, Anne Slowey and Alexis Bryan Morgan, will select a winner to receive the ELLE & RISD Design Award and a $25,000 prize to be used toward his or her career. Elle will also be chronicling the students' trip to the catwalk in a five-part documentary style series on Elle.com. Sure, it's not the largest fashion show in NYC history, but we're eager to see how it all turns out!
