    Proving once again that she's one of the coolest indie designers in the city, Rachel Comey has recruited the swoon-worthy vocals of St. Vincent (a.k.a. Annie Cole) for a live performance during her Spring 2010 runway show in September.

    Comey's show was already shaping up to be pretty unconventional, as the designer had chosen to embrace the unpredictable whims of the city's recent weather by staging her collection outside on a rooftop in West Chelsea -- thus exposing models and attendants alike to the elements.

    Conveniently, Comey's going to come prepared. “'I guess if it rains at the show, I’m ready," the designer tells Style File. Apparently the Spring 2010 collection will involve a lot of ... you guessed it ... raincoats.
