New York to host Back-to-School Fashion Show

Fashion Week starts early on the High Line. New York City's elevated railway-turned-park—described as “the most extraordinary fashion promenade you can imagine” by Bill Cunningham of The New York Times—is getting ready to host its first official runway event, which will be free and open to the public.

As part of its Community Engagement initiative to serve the needs and interests of New Yorkers living and working near the High Line, Friends of the High Line will present the High Line Back-to-School Teen Fashion Show, on Thursday, August 29 at 7:00 PM within the Chelsea Market Passage, the semi-enclosed passageway on the High Line between West 15th and West 16th Streets.

Curated by Friends of the High Line and 13 local teens, with production assistance and artistic direction from Harlem's Fashion Row and Caravan Stylist Studio, the High Line Back-to-School Teen Fashion Show will feature professional models wearing fresh fall fashions for young adults, designed and styled by local teens in collaboration with emerging and established American fashion designers, including Boy Meets Girl, Huminska, Junk Food Clothing, LaQuan Smith, Tabii Just, and Synderela, and complemented by shoes and accessories selected by the teens from HSN.com and Michelle Vale.

The runway fashion show was created by the teens as part of a two-month-long workshop series organized by Friends of the High Line, with leading support from the Ford Foundation. Over July and August, the teens attended information sessions in the studios of fashion designer and Project Runway Season 9 designer Kim Goldson, clothing stylists from HSN.com, make-up artists from Pop Beauty Cosmetics, and hair stylists from Salon Grafix.

The series culminated with studio apprenticeships in which teens paired off with the individual designers to create new looks for the High Line Back-to-School Teen Runway Show.
