Nolcha Fashion Week features 3 shows & 13 designers

Feb '13
New York Fall/Winter 2013 presented by RUSK held their runway shows at Pier 59.  The day-long event featured 3 runway shows, and 13 designers.  Now in its sixth year, Nolcha is one of New York’s leading platforms for independent global fashion designers. The brands who presented were global in scope including designers based out of China, Sweden, The UK, Brazil, and across the U.S.

The First show featured: Mikailee Alton, Tess Johnson, Dos Caras Swimwear and The Vanity Project (featuring shoes by Cat Footwear).  The Vanity Project had celebrities walking in their shows including rock-band "Early Morning Rebel," Steve Maneri (Tight-end for the Kansas City Chiefs) and Robert McClain (defensive-back for Atlanta Falcons).

The second show featured: Diana Simaan, Studio 6th Sense, Andressa Leão, Adolfo Sanchez and Michael Fenici. The Michael Fenici show featured NYC's most notable business men, making their catwalk debut to illustrate how Fenici's bespoke suits are customized to different types & styles of men.  A full list of these NYC models available upon request, including Nolcha's own President, Arthur Mandel.

The third show featured: JUNGWON (designer rain coats) Samantha Cole London, Lilly Lorraine and Dany Tabet.  And, it wasn't only Dany Tabet's gowns that stopped the show! Dany Tabet shocked the audience when during his finale walk; he stopped the music and started talking about his muse.  He pulled her out of the audience and got down on one knee with a Tiffany box wrapped in a ribbon and proposed.  She started crying and the entire audience rose to their feet in a standing ovation. VH1's Carrie Keagan was directly in front of the action, with a front row seat to the emotional proposal!  She said yes!

Celebrity attendance at the shows included: Carrie Keagan (VH1), Dawn Olivieri (House of Lies) who was wearing Nolcha designer Tess Johnson, Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola (Jersey Shore), Kacie Boguskie (The Bachelor) who wore looks by Nolcha's designers Diana Simaan & Lilly Lorraine, Waka Flocka (rapper), Masha (recording artist), Allure (female R&B group), Briella Calafiore (Style Network's Glam Fairy), Early Morning Rebel (rock band), Krystal Joy Brown (Broadway star, "Big Fish"), Guinevere (recording artist), Stve Maneri (Kansas City Chiefs), Robert McClain (Atlanta Falcons), and James Anderson (Carolina Panthers).

The Presenting Sponsor RUSK returns for a second consecutive season, and is joined by Official Sponsors: smartwater, CLEAR, RealBeanz, DON Q Rums, FOCO Pure Coconut Water and American Airlines.
