The event will also mark the release of the musical's cast recording.
Fashion designers the Blonds will collaborate with Moulin Rouge! The Musical for a collection of looks inspired by the new musical. The line will debut on September 9 at the Al Hirschfeld Theatre as an off-site event as part of New York Fashion Week.

The stage musical features many of the iconic songs from the movie and also includes recent hits released since the movie premiered 15 years ago."

The design team includes Derek McLane (sets), Catherine Zuber (costumes), Justin Townsend (lighting), Peter Hylenski (sound), David Brian Brown (wig and hair design), and Sarah Cimino (make-up design).
