NY Fashion Week Show Production

In collaboration with artists, musicians, and other creatives, I directed and produced the Spring/Summer 2018 NY Fashion Week show at a venue in Brooklyn.

This immersive experience was shared with a room full of fashion industry press, retailers, and community members.

At the sound of the bell, on the eve of a full moon, 16 women wearing the Spring/Summer 2018 collection gathered for a performance of choreographed movements and spoken word. 

The choreography, music, set, and wardrobe were designed collectively as an exhibition and celebration of all forms of femininity and our pursuit of connection to others and to ourselves. The collection addresses the feminine stereotypes of, and explores variations on, DIY and craft techniques for multi-functional, inclusive wearables.

This collection was featured in a campaign shot by Nikki Krecicki on Vogue.com.
