TIMES: Thursday through Saturday Evenings at 8 PM. Closes after Sunday Matinee at 3 PM, 8/24/08.

PRODUCED, DIRECTED AND COORDINATED BY: William T. (Bill) Buster, in his New York debut. The producer will donate a third of ticket sales to NYU LANGONE MEDICAL CENTER in gratitude for their help in saving his life after a bout with a severe, disabling respiratory illness since 2006.

Partial proceeds from items sold to benefit THE MUSEUM OF THE CITY OF NEW YORK, Fashion and Textile Exhibitions, for the preservation of the lost artistry of the American Garment Industry.

SYNOPSIS: A must-see for everyone who is a lover of fashion design and fashion history, those working in fashion design, retail, or students, this is a rare and detailed opportunity to see, on a runway, an unprecedented collection of American Vintage fashions created and sold in New York and throughout North America.

A living tribute and a wake-up call, this event is the best testament to what has been lost in the tragic redevelopment of the historic Garment District.

The show is created by Bill Buster, an Award-Winning designer in Film, Theatre, Television and Opera. The event is a spectacular theatrical runway retrospective of the classic fashions that defined American Elegance and still inspire the runway collections shown around the world.

Presented on four consecutive dates, this is presented as a living tribute to the New York Fashion District and the history that was made there.

There will also be available for sale a boutique of vintage fashions, collectible accessories and home décor objects from the eras covered in the show. Join us for a champagne reception before and after the show opening night, Thursday, August 21.

A sale of some fashions from the show will follow the closing matinee performance, Sunday August 24. Long before there was a Fashion Week, The New York and American Garment Industry reached a level of artistry and craftsmanship that is evident in the over 200 complete vintage outfits from 1925 to 1965, featuring day and evening wear, dresses, gowns, furs, jewelry, handbags and hats.

Carefully chosen to reflect the least extreme and most timeless lines and styles that still inspire every major designer in fashion, the show is presented in two scenes.
