Arts Hearts Fashion Opening Day at Grand Central Station Presented by AIDS Healthcare Foundation in Association with FTL Moda
Opening day for prestigious bi-coastal fashion platform Art Hearts Fashion commenced last night with a 5 designer showcase hosted at Vanderbilt Hall presented by AIDS Healthcare Foundation in association with FTL Moda. 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 Sinno's rich color scheme of blues, reds and golds accentuated the feminine form with fanciful ornate detailing and unexpected structured features. Striking lines and intricate jeweling elicited excitement from guests and media. Designer Gregorio Sanchez 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. Cary Santiago closed the evening with a jaw dropping collection full of high drama. The cinematic designs are impeccably crafted demonstrating Santiago's ingenious artistry.
Official Makeup Sponsor The Organic Face™ and Official Hair Care Sponsor Marrakesh worked with designers bringing their visions to life on the runway.
