Times Square Fashion Week went on for the second year despite the limitations imposed by COVID-19 and featuring seven designers as well as key sponsors, key-note speakers and other creative artists.
“We are extremely grateful for all of the talented designers that showcased their work for Times Square Fashion Week as well as our sponsors, keynote speakers and VIP guests,” said Dee Rivera, founder of Times Square Fashion Week.
Guests of honor included Jean Shafiroff as the mistress of ceremony and Gale A. Brewer, the Manhattan Borough president, who expressed her thanks to DCG Media Group, Melissa Shea of Fashion Mingle, the Times Square Alliance, City Harvest and Throw NYC.
“It took hard work and determination, but we did a live event in the heart of Times Square, which was more than expected,” Rivera continued. “I am very proud of what we accomplished during a global pandemic for NYFW and grateful to my executive producer, Melissa Shea of Fashion Mingle, who saw my vision and decided to take a leap of faith with me to make this event happen. The designers’ collections brought to the heart of Times Square [was] a vibe that was very much needed since the start of COVID-19.”
The designers included Justin Haynes of JUS10H, Cenia Paredes of Cenia NY, Isabella Barrett of House of Barrett, Gloria Lee of Gloria Lee Designs, Cherelle Towns of XEVONQUII, Chokomode and Kimberly Pucci of Kimberly Pucci Atelier + Vault.
