Staten Island Fashion Week
With New York Fashion Week drawing ever nearer, Staten Island decided to get in on the action with a pre-fashion week show.
New York Fashion Week begins on Thursday, September 7th and runs until the 16th. What do we mean by “pre-fashion week”? Well, we mean that the Staten Island Fashion Week show will be held one week before the official NYFW launches.
Organizer Victor Quinteros told us exclusively that they decided on a prefashion week show in order to not interfere with the official fashion week shows. Quinteros also wanted to draw more attention to the lost borough and ultimately, all boroughs, stating, that New York Fashion Week is “for New York, not just Manhattan. We would like to see official Fashion Week shows in Brooklyn, the Bronx, Staten Island, and Queens.”
The Pros Media Group has designers from Houston, Dallas, San Antonio and Austin, TX coming to the event in order to showcase their work every year . From Mexico: Fashion Designer: Elizabeth Delgado of Mexico made an appearance; From Spain Fashion Designer Antonio Parra was featured and participated at the S/S 2017 Season .
