NYFW F/W ’21! IMPACT NYFW Gets Inclusive For Fashion Week – Get Your Tickets!By The DivaGals | February 17, 2021 | Food Fashion Style
IMPACT NYFW is coming to NYFW F/W ’21 — and you can “virtually” attend this year’s presentations.
IMPACT is an alternative, nonprofit New York fashion week platform for emerging, sustainable designers to showcase their work in pop-up shops, showrooms and on the runway.
Envisioned by Lizzy Gee, this all-inclusive fashion designer based in Brooklyn, N.Y. practices sustainability with her designs and wanted to further transcend eco-conscious methods in regards to how designs were presented with another passion- event production.
Our DivaGal pal Brana Dane (pictured left) is a model and activist who is the “Special Guest” and host of Impact NYFW.
Filmed at the Canvas on Bowery, the showcase features eight sustainable designer collections: KINdom, Lizzy Gee, Tina Trupiano, Kerry Phelan, Brownmill, The Way of Tea, Converted Closet and Anne James New York. Not only does the designers’ work make an impact on the runway, but all ticket proceeds from each event are donated to an organization that advocates for a sustainable/ethical fashion industry and our environment.
IMPACT welcomes all genders, sizes and seasons. Each event also includes a variety of live music performances, guest speakers who are pioneers of sustainability, and refreshments from our generous sponsors. The ultimate goal is to have a fun evening celebrating sustainable design, educating the general public about eco-friendly fashion, and everyone gaining connections to achieve their own future endeavors.
