We came, we saw, we conquered. Even though NYC was in a state of emergency due to the terrible snow storms hitting the East Cost, FTL MODA + Hearts Fashion runway was a complete success story. The show took place on February 13th in Lincoln Center's main Theatre. This show was so close to my heart because not only was it for a good cause (Aids Healthcare Foundation), but it also supported some emerging designers from Italy (Rome & Milan) along with some major couture players. Another fab detail… Freida Rothman jewelry made an appearance on the runway for the first time! It was so wonderful to see our jewelry come to life during Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, especially paired with such prestigious collections.
FTL MODA opened with Italy's rising contemporary ready-to-wear stars Kokler and Silkskin. The show was then followed by evening-wear collections from Giada Curti, Jamal Taslaq, Gianni Tolentino, and Nino Lettieri. The second half featured Art Hearts Fashion designers Michael Herrera, Mister Triple X, Control Sector, Altaf Maaneshia, and a dramatic finale by designer Furne Amato whose work can be seen on celebrities including Katy Perry, Heidi Klum, Shakira, and Jennifer Lopez.
Thank you to everyone who came out to support, it was a night to remember.
