It feels like just yesterday when Whitney Port made her NYFW runway debut! The City star showed off her fall 2012 Whitney Eve collection at the Lincoln Center, and we even caught up with her backstage to chat about her experience. Since then, Whitney has launched a jewelry line and, of course, has been continuing to work on her next spring 2013 Whitney Eve collection. Little did we know, Whitney was planning on making her NYFW show a WEE bit different than her previous ones by adding one extra (huge) element—YOU! She announced on her blog that she's creating the first-ever fan funded show for spring 2013. Now you're probably thinking, "Whaaa? She needs ME to help pay for her collection?" Well, technically, yes, but there are some pretttyyy cool perks that come along with it.

Whitney needs to raise $50,000 by Sept. 10, and she was smart enough to figure out that (duh) people wouldn't throw down cash without a little incentive, SO here's what you get for what you donate, according to her Crowdfunding page:
