Launch NYC: Retail/Runway/Showroom
- Jareen, CNN iReport producer
During fashion week, LAUNCH NYC (organized by Manufacture NY) combines a state-of-the-art runway with luxurious retail and showroom space. Designers can show their latest collection on the runway, under the best lighting and sound conditions, to fashion's top press, wholesale buyers, loyal customers and VIPs. At the same time, designers can present sales samples of their latest FW14 collection in the adjacent showroom for buyers + press to view privately by appointment. Finally, in the retail store, designers can sell their collection of clothes, accessories and jewelry to the public directly after the runway show and throughout Fashion Week.
I spoke with designers about their collections and how they got involved during the opening party at the retail space on 1/29/2014 and shot one of their many runway shows on 2/5/2014.
