Fashion Icons of NYC

Celebrating the launch of Fashion Icons 2 With The Author and Creator of NYFW Fern Mallis

” It’s not about the minutes, but the moments that create a full life.”

This one was one of those moments where celebrating feels paramount, when you’re raised in New York and the celebratee is Fern Mallis.

She has had an iconic life in the New York fashion scene, a hardworking visionary, the creator of New York Fashion Week.

We went to the launch of fashion icons 2 with Fern Mallis and celebrating the fashion icons she has met and worked with in her life. In both books she shows the amazing talent that she has worked with and the evolution of each designer.

Growing up in New York fashion has always been a big influence in my life and has helped me find my dreams. NYFW specifically was the key turning point in my life where I decided to pursue fashion rather than civil engineering which my parents thought I should do.
