The 5pm main show featured newcomer Samantha Leibowitz, and returning brands ACID NYC and Rohitava Banerjee. Leibowitz presented her collection of edgy women’s ready-to-wear, while ACID NYC showed a color mix of men’s and women’s looks inspired by the sea—both are sustainable “Made in NYC” brands. For Banerjee, a Parsons student, this was the anticipated follow-up show to his debut show in February where he was dubbed “the next Alexander McQueen” (Sourcing Journal) and “a 19-year-old wunderkind” (NY Post).
The 8pm evening show closed with the China Moment collective, including NIKISTAVIA (customizable haute couture), Syu Syu Han (high-end women’s ready-to-wear), and Cashmere Song (a collection of cream colored eco, raw cashmere from head to toe).
