New Talent @ New York Fashion Week Spring 2013

Mercedes Benz Fashion Week/Lincoln Center, Midtown, Chelsea Piers

There was a lot of new talent on display during the New York Fashion Week Spring 2013 Collections...with schools Academy of Art, Parsons, and the Art Institute of New York City staging runway shows.

We caught up with the featured students of the latter institution's lucky students backstage prior to there show---

 Like NYC itself-these students-some graduates in the mix ( Nelson Tavarez, Mariana Lopez, Gita Sidikman, Kayla Lael, Luisina Victoria, Wendy Calderon, and Jet Black---and current students Mark Walters, Jeri-Lee Prescod-Alexander, Joshuan Aponte, Isaiah Clemmons, and Danni Xu)---are originally from all over the world as well as USA natives.

Nolcha Fashion Week staged a day of runway shows---with main sponsor haircare RUSK
...and then hosted a blogger event follow-up the next day...where we met up with the talented Caitlin Kelly-a high-end swimwear designer who we think, has a very bright future.
