September is just around the corner and New York Fashion Week is my favorite event throughout the year.

Opening Ceremony is known for setting conceptual productions for its fashion presentations, and this season, the company is taking it to a higher level.

This year Opening Ceremony is doing a runway as a theater for its SS ’15 collection. Director Spike Jonze and Jonah Hill are co-writing a one-act play to be staged in lieu of Opening Ceremony‘s traditional fashion show. The show will feature models and actors. The show is scheduled for September 7.

Women’s Wear Daily reports, “Jonze, who has done fashion capsules with OC for his films “Where The Wild Things Are” and “Her,” will direct a cast of actors and models in his first project since winning the Oscar for best original screenplay for “Her” earlier this year. The story line is still being finalized, according to OC cofounder Humberto Leon, who noted the play was Jonze’s idea, as was bringing on Hill, who is known primarily for acting though his writing credits include “21 Jump Street” and its sequel “22 Jump Street,” currently in theaters. Hill will not act in the play.” 

“We were really excited about him writing an original script and seeing how this would take shape,” said Leon.
