On Thursday, February 13, The Set NYC presented a fashion week benefit to end child trafficking at the Holy Apostle Ballroom located in Chelsea. The Set NYC, a New York CIty event company collaborated with a non-profit organization Love146.Org to help spread awareness of child trafficking through showcasing unique designs by independent designers.
The first runway show was by designer Lucina Lu. Called “Timeless Tang“, the line was inspired by traditional classical Chinese aesthetics from the clothing down to the hairstyles. Lucina’s influences were “Han” “Tang” dynasty clothing from Qin Han Dynasty. Presenting distinctive styles, her designs showed characteristics of the ancient Chinese clothing culture. This collection was my favorite because of the eye popping, bold prints, distinctive fabrics and exhibiting a contemporary elegance yet fun look.
The next designer was Autumn Lin Kietponglert. Called “Singularities” her line featured signature trademark one of a kind zipper pieces with interesting mixtures of experimental shapes that harbored an extra-terrestrial edge. Very unique, different and futuristic.
The third designer was Kristin Costa. Called “Underbelly” the line resembled 1920s french couture but with dark elements. The designs were coherently homely, very dark, Gothic, quirky with a ghastly tone all compiled into one. It showcased an extravagant imagination of nightmare fantasy.
Lastly, designers Yossi for Kevin Shahroozi showcased theri runway “Leather Trousers, The Modern Essential”. Their line was clean, cut, contemporary, practical, and modern. With a basic leather trousers, it was displayed flexibility and versatility in compilation of several looks with an edgy touch.
