Opening day for prestigious bi-coastal fashion platform Art Hearts Fashion commenced last night with a 5 designer showcase hosted at Vanderbilt Hall, Grand Central Station, presented by AIDS Healthcare Foundation.
As a voice for artistic and cutting edge designers, Art Hearts Fashion is paving the way toward the future of Fashion Week. The 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. The platform is unequivocally intertwined with the causes and organizations it supports.
Art Hearts Fashion Founder and Designer Erik Rosete opened the show with his Mister Triple X “Vortex” collection. This season Mister Triple X debuted a flirtatious metallic pallet featuring rich body-con dresses, shorts and the designer’s signature bunny ears.
Zachary/Nathaniel was next to the runway, presenting an inspired collection of dark hues, plunging necklines and leather features. Expert draping made for flattering silhouettes in the designs, expertly paired with sheer and leather.
Tarek’s presentation incorporated rich color scheme of blues, reds and golds, accentuating the feminine form with fanciful ornate detailing and unexpected structured features. Striking lines and intricate jeweling elicited excitement from guests and media.
This designer enlivened the runway with bright pops of color and fine hand embroidery. This cohesive collection full of bold patterned skirts and romantic tops expressed a natural vibrant energy and movement.
Ms. Santiago closed the evening with a jaw dropping collection full of high drama. The cinematic designs are impeccably crafted demonstrating Santiago’s ingenious artistry.
