After New York Fashion Week, safety issues continue to be discussed – WWD

New York Fashion Week is officially over, but the safety issue still lingers.

Chad Busto was arrested at the Ralph Lauren runway show in Brooklyn on September 8 after allegedly asking to see Emma Watson during the recently concluded New York Fashion Week. The actress did not attend. Earlier, an associate of actress Laura Linney was hit in the back of the head by an unidentified person. Fossil fuel protesters protested outside the NYFW downtown venue, and two animal rights protesters took to the runway in Coach on September 7.

According to Ty Yorio, co-owner of Citadel Security, who has worked at NYFW for decades, most designers spend an average of $3,000 to $5,000 on security at a fashion show. The norm is six security guards for six-hour shifts, which is about a $3,200 bill, he said. „It’s nothing. It costs them $250,000 to put on the show [an apparent reference to more established brands]. That is the problem. They usually spend more money on flowers than security. I have been competing with flowers for 35 years.

That investment allows for coverage during set-up, show and then breakdown. Investment also depends on the number of viewers of a brand. „And then they’ll need security, especially for celebrities, so they’re not mobbed by paparazzi,” Yorio said.

Busto, 43, was arrested and charged with criminal trespass and disorderly conduct. He was later granted supervised release and is due back in court next month, according to a spokeswoman for the Brooklyn district attorney’s office. Additionally, Busto has a warrant out for the Southampton, NY, Police Department, who was charged with fourth-degree stalking last month in connection with Drew Barrymore.

Representatives for the Southampton Police Department and Ralph Lauren did not respond to requests for comment Friday. A spokeswoman for Watson’s gin company, Renais, declined a request for comment, while a spokeswoman for Barrymore did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

A spokeswoman for PETA said the two supporters were not arrested following the coach incident at the New York Public Library.

Yorio said, „People are becoming more aggressive. There are very little fines or no punishment for interrupting or disturbing or inappropriate behavior. It’s spread throughout society. It’s not just that. [happening] At fashion shows, concerts and theatres.”

Citadel Security invested heavily in its on-site security personnel at NYFW shows and 50 Warwick Street events. It took some to keep the anti-fossil fuel protesters on Tax Street under control. Yorio said it was the same group that disrupted a tennis match at the US Open last week. A group called Extinction Rebellion claimed responsibility for the protest.

Given these types of incidents, some celebrities and politicians choose to keep a low profile or fly private against business. “Watch this nut hit someone in the back of the head [Christian] Siriano show. There is no reason for that to happen,” Yorio said, adding that his team did not handle the event.

The New York City Police Department was called to The Bear Hotel after the 28-year-old victim was approached by an unidentified man in front of the hotel, an NYPD spokesman said. said. Video footage posted on a media site showed a man being stabbed in the back of the head along with actress Linney. The man fled the scene and was not injured, according to the NYPD. According to an NYPD spokesperson, a harassment report was taken.

A spokesperson for The Bear said on Friday that they had no information about the incident.

Overall, Yorio said, people should „act appropriately and be civil. If you want to yell or do something, don’t do it. We’re all in this together. Why should I bother you because I feel something different? Act accordingly.”
