One World Trade Center Lighted Up for the 2017 New York Fashion and Lifestyle Festival
Thursday, June 8th, 2017 at 7pm - the 2017 New York Fashion & Lifestyle Festival (NYFLF) was held on the 63rd floor of One World Trade Center, hosted jointly by Global Fashion Week Inc. and WG Empire. In the meantime, One World Trade Center - the iconic building lighted up with the NYFLF hot pink color.
NYFLF - the annual grand celebration event aims to provide opportunities for emerging designers and artists to showcase and connect with media, buyers and investors. This year, NYFLF partnered with The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF), highlighting charity, aside from the theme of fashion and art. Participants include Lanyu(designer), Narval New York (designer), Gemma Hoi (designer), Yang Mai(Artist), Lin Wang(Artist), Coralraincan(Artist), etc. Influential industry guests were invited, including Fiona Dieffenbacher, director of the BFA fashion design program at Parsons; Nicole Zhao, CEO of LANYU; Ryan Serhant and Fredrik Eklund, stars from the famous Million Dollar Listing and Sterling McDavid, chairman of UNICEF Next Generation.
“A key goal of the 2017 NYFLF is to support emerging fashion designers and artists around the globe. Many talented emerging designers are unable to afford showing at New York Fashion Week. June, less busy on the fashion calendar, proves a suitable month for NYELF to attract and invite Industry individuals . Many emerging New York designers/artists, on the other hand, are in need of such platforms. After a selection process, admitted emerging artists are able to display their works at NYFLF. NYFLF invite investors who take interest in fashion and art, connecting them with emerging brands at NYFLF. The festival serves the commercial function and meanwhile makes charitable contributions. On behalf of NYFLF, I would like to thank Dior Makeup, The Fragrance Group, La Prairie, Lady M, Cava Oinos, Pisco 100, Cusquena, B&H Photo and The Staring Project for being our sponsors. Together, we work to support causes of The United Nations Children’s Fund.” Said Todd Hessert Jiang, creative director of NYFLF.
