Over 1500 Fashionistas trekked through a blizzard to attend the FTL MODA + ART HEARTS FASHION; the closing show of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week at Lincoln Center.
Just in time for Valentines day, The AIDS Healthcare foundation presented the FTL MODA + ART HEARTS FASHION event to promote the connection between fashion and philanthropy and to support the next generation of young designers while promoting AIDS awareness.
Launched in 2007 by Ilaria Niccolini Productions, FTL MODA proudly showcases Italian brands exhibiting the county's fine legacy of craftsmanship and signature style. In 2012 FTL MODA partnered with producer/designer Erik Rosete to bring the platform to New York Fashion Week.
This season, Erik invited the FTL MODA platform to open for his event ART HEARTS FASHION, a leading art fashion platform to create meaningful and artistic fashion shows.
Since 2011, Erik Rosete's event ART HEARTS FASHION has been held across the U.S. and benefitted charities including AIDS Project Los Angeles, Women's Cancer Research and Hurricane Sandy Relief Kitchen.
The Fall 2014 Season was the premiere entry for FTL MODA into the official Mercedes-Benz NY Fashion Week.
