THE FASHION ELITE
THE NYIB COLLABORATES WITH LUXURY BRAND FASHION AVENUE NEWS
Fashion Avenue News, Model World and The Fashion Dynasty Luxury Brands Magazines are ecstatic to collaborate with the New York Beauty Institute for our 20th annual FASHION ON THE HUDSON SHOW, Saturday July 15, 2017 at Riverbank State Park.
Chief Executive Publisher, Sofia Davis says “The NY Institute of Beauty proved to be a professional, knowledgeable and invaluable source for our fashion events, I was very impressed with the execution of their work.”
They were excellent at the New York Fashion Week Rocky Gathercole show. With more than 60 models, 1,500 people in a space that seats 450 and 1,800 people waiting to get in, these beauty professionals did not skip a beat. Everything was ON TIME, including the show.
We are looking forward to a long term working relationship with the New York Institute of Beauty and encourage you to take a look at the courses they have.
NYIB IS THE OFFICIAL MAKE ARTISTS SPONSOR FOR FASHION ON THE HUDSON 20
ABOUT THE NY INSTITUTE OF BEAUTY
For over 20 years, we have been dedicated to presenting the highest level of education and technology in the Esthetic (Skin Care & Makeup), Nail Specialty and Waxing fields.
At New York Institute of Beauty our New York State approved courses in Esthetics (Skin Care & Makeup), Nail Specialty and Waxing are taught by Licensed professionals. They create a learning environment where education is not only a priority, it is creative and fun! Our educators go above and beyond the classroom, with trips to trade shows, conferences and/or host seminars with special guests.
During your training at New York Institute of Beauty your clinic work will be in our State of the Art facility that includes professional products and equipment as well as a Vichy shower room! Not only will you have the opportunity to learn all that is necessary to complete and pass the New York State Board Exam, you will have the opportunity to gain extra knowledge in light chemical peels, advanced facial procedures and body treatments.
Fashion on the Hudson was created in 1997 to give Independent and Emerging Fashion Industry talent a platform. There was Fashion Week, 7th on 6th, but no place for the independent who could not afford those prices, therefore, Fashion on the Hudson was born.
It was initially named 7th on 125th when we were on 125th in front of the Harlem State Office Building, but in 2008, our crowd grew too large when we stopped traffic on 125th and the police had to direct traffic around our crowd (the Cops loved it). In 2008, we were told to “You Need Central Park or Madison Square Garden, your Audience is too large for 125th Street), so in 2009 we went to Riverbank State Park, where we have been ever since.
This year our Fashion on the Hudson show was AMAZING, a MASSIVE CROWD (almost got in trouble again – crowd control). We are looking for even more this year. We are asking EVERYONE to mark their calendars, (Saturday July 15, 2017) and make it a point to share this day with us. This is day of ReBirth, Connecting, Friendships, and Forgiveness. Think about the reason the event was created in the first place, to give the INDEPENDENT FASHION INDUSTRY TALENT A PLACE!!!!! They need your support, and we need your support. The show is FREE. It’s FREE for designers to participate and ITS FREE TO ATTEND.
The theme this year is “THE FASHION INDUSTRY ELITE”, these are designers that have a cohesive collection, that have been working on their crafts, you will see our version of the independent Fashion Houses of DIOR, CHANEL, YVES LAURENT, LAGERFIELD, RALPH LAUREN, DIANE VON FUSTERNBERG, DONNA KARAN, CARMEN MARC, VALENTINO, and more.
We will have our Award Ceremony where we will honor the INDEPENDENT FASHION HOUSES, Accessory Designers, Kid Models/Designers and SuperModels.
The PHOTOGRAPHER/VIDEOGRAPHER AWARDS – We appreciate and acknowledge all the photographers/videographers that cover the events and we want to acknowledge them.
The MAGAZINE/BLOGGER AWARDS will be given out at the FOTH After Party.
We have pulled our team together and are gearing up for the most fabulous Fashion On The Hudson EVER….
