New York prepares to showcase over 50 American & International independent fashion designers who will exhibit their Spring/Summer 2010 Collections via runway shows and exhibitions during September 14th – 18th 2009.

A key feature this season is fashion from St Vincent's and the Grenadine's. Invest SVG, through assistance from the European Union (EU), who is committed to the development and promotion of the Fashion Industry in St.Vincent and the Grenadines will be sponsoring independent fashion designers Tami B, Shernicia, Kimmystic.clo and Soka.

The Luxe Collective runway show will introduce brands that suit the lifestyle of affluent and influential consumers. Special Occasion fashion will play a large part in the presentation including Avante Garde mastery and sassy swimwear, all under the same standards of fit, fabric and finishing.

The Accessory Lounge, located at the Bohemian National Hall, is the home for select jewelry, shoe and handbag designers to come together under one roof to adorn the masses with unique eclectic pieces; providing a diverse mix of talent from bold and exotic, to classic and quaint.
