Art Hearts Fashion hosted New York Fashion Week with over 20 global designers at their spectacular venue in midtown’s glitzy Ziegfeld this past weekend. The shows ran from Thursday, February 10th to Sunday, February 13th, and featured everything from fashion to fine art. Art Hearts Fashion has become a hub for prominent and up-and-coming designers to show collections and get noticed. This season, over 40 percent of designers were Latinx designers, which is credited in large part to the executive team’s Latinx heritage. Art Hearts Fashion founder, Erik Rosete is a proud Mexican American who has worked to create a community and haven for global designers.
The unique format of the show mixing celebrities, influencers, media, and consumers has become a popular format for brands aiming to not only get media attention, but also to build a relationship directly with consumers to build their direct-to-consumer business. Rosete aims to create an environment that brings the fun back to fashion with guests able to see several shows at a time. Attendees enjoyed an elevated cocktail and art social hour presented by the official spirit of NYFW, Neft Vodka. Rockstar Energy powered the nights, several of which included afterparties for guests to keep the good times rolling. “Guest experience is so important to me because if guests are having a good time, they are going to be more open to discovering a new brand,” quips Rosete.
The show’s location at the famed Ziegfeld was the perfect backdrop for the event hosting top editors, influencers, and tastemakers. The beauty trends hitting the catwalk were made possible by the Official Beauty Tool of New York fashion week, Japonesque. Hair by I.C.O.N. and makeup by LH Cosmetics. This seasons special cause was the Inherent Foundation whose focus is on men’s mental health.
