Art Hearts Fashion’s N.Y. Edition Showcases California Designers
The Fall/Winter 2020–21 edition of Art Hearts Fashion celebrated New York Fashion Week Feb. 6–9 at the Angel Orensanz Foundation, located in Manhattan’s Lower East Side. The neo-gothic-style former Jewish synagogue was created in 1849 under the direction of architect Alexander Saeltzer. Renovated by sculptor and painter Angel Orensanz in 1978, the building became a welcoming home for the visual and performing arts.
Art Hearts Fashion’s production saw works from global artists and also highlighted collections from California-based designers. Included in the event were pieces created by Fernando Alberto, Glaudi, Kentaro Kameyama, Merlin Castell, Mister Triple X, Ryan Patros, Walter Collection and Willfredo Gerardo.
For Fall/Winter, designers showcased an eclectic array of designs including glamorous gowns, festive cocktail dresses and fresh takes on men’s suiting in addition to cozy yet luxurious loungewear. Consistent themes throughout included fabrics that shimmered with glittering details or shiny vinyl, in addition to expert pleating.
