Over 100 people gathered at Pier 59 to witness a beautiful event, which featured a violinist, outrageous headpieces, and an overall angelic atmosphere.
One of my favorites from this showcase was the Zabetta Couture collection by designer Ruth Zabetta. The bright green tropical prints mixed with the pop latin beats made everything come together. This collection gave ultimate summer vibes, fusing femininity, modernism, and culture in each design.
The Anyi collection was introduced by a traditional Korean musician that captivated the entire room. This set the perfect atmosphere for Anyi’s magnificent pieces. Anyi’s collection featured sheer fabrics, a blend of dark and bright colors, and swimsuit cuts.
