From Friday, Sept. 11-18, international fashion platform Art Hearts Fashion will showcase over 20 designers for New York Fashion Week at five of New York’s iconic locations: Carnegie Hall, Grand Central Station, The Highline Hotel Cathedral, Liberty Theatre, and the Fitzpatrick Hotel.
Earlier this week, they opened the show with Designer Erik Rosete, who presented his Mister Triple X “Vortex” collection consisting of a flirtatious metallic pallet featuring body-con dresses, shorts and the designer’s signature bunny ears. Zachary/Nathaniel followed, presenting an inspired collection of dark hues, plunging necklines and leather features.
Up next, Tarek Sinno’s debuted a collection featuring a rich color scheme of blues, reds and golds, accentuating the feminine form with fanciful, ornate detailing and unexpected structured features. Later, designer Gregorio Sanchez enlivened the runway with bright pops of color, fine hand embroidery, bold patterned skirts and romantic tops. Closing out the show, Cary Santiago presented a jaw-dropping collection of dramatic gowns.
The official makeup sponsor, The Organic Face™, and official haircare sponsor, Marrakesh, worked with designers to bring their visions to life on the runway. As a voice for artistic and cutting edge designers, AHF is paving the way toward the future of Fashion Week. AHF’s philanthropic drive stretches from coast to coast, putting the spotlight on how fashion can promote constructive ideals and influence the progressive evolution of the fashion industry.
Each season, AHF works with the AIDS Healthcare Foundation and Make-A-Wish. Participating designers can be seen on every major Hollywood celebrity including Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Niki Minaj, Rita Ora, Jennifer Lopez, Shakira, Miley Cirus, and Carrie Underwood. The platform is unequivocally intertwined with the causes and organizations it supports.
The upcoming Art Hearts Fashion LA will kick off in Los Angeles, Oct. 5-10, 2015. In the meantime, check out the below gallery for a compilation of photos from the Art Hearts Fashion Opening Day show at Grand Central Station.
