SCENES FROM A MALL: Alexander Wang’s annual postshow September epic spectacle shifted to Pier 15 at the South Street Seaport this season. The designer helped send off its tourist trap mall, which is set to close today in preparation for its post-Sandy demolition. Wang’s organizers, which included Brooklyn party promoters Team Shade, turned the west end of the space’s third floor into a laser and smoke-filled Tokyo bazaar reminiscent of certain scenes in “Blade Runner.” Admission to the party was an hour late from the announced start time of 10 p.m. (due in part to a late rehearsal by headliner Nicki Minaj), which led to huge lines in front, much to the dismay of the bridge and tunnel diners at the Pacific Grill.
