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.??
Fall 2014 was the premiere entry for FTL MODA into the official Mercedes-Benz NY Fashion Week calendar and the evening capped off the week with a taste of the European shows ahead. Inglot cosmetics and Prive hair provided hair and makeup lead by beauty director Erik Torppe and a special hair collaboration with Rockstar Wigs. Guests enjoyed complimentary specialty cocktails by Mizo Shochu and fully loaded gift bags by FHI Heat.
Celebrating trends in Italian style, FTL MODA designers opened the show with an array of styles directly from the catwalks of Italy. Italy's rising stars Kokler and Silkskin opened with contemporary and ready-to-wear collections followed by Giada Curti, Jamal Taslaq, and Gianni Tolentino. Accessories on the runway included Mosaique Shoes, Erika Regondi, Silvia Massacesi, and Maria Greca. The Italian showcase culminated with a grand finale by Haute Couture Designer Nino Lettieri.
The ART HEARTS FASHION finale presentation featured inspired collections from the nation's freshest trend setting designers. Opening the show was M the Movement, the urban eco-friendly line by Simplicio Michael Louis Herrera whose fashion inspired 90210 star Ian Ziering to walk in support of the cause. The show was followed by Control Sector's asymmetrical hoodies and fashion forward menswear. The crowd cheered and the evening got sensual and dark when designer Erik Rosete took the stage with his street wear line up MISTER TRIPLE X. The Mister Triple X Collection featured leather and chains with lots of skin and upbeat music to keep the crowd excited and on their feet. Next, Altaf Maaneshia showed a captivating and charismatic collection. Devyn Abdullah winner of "The Face" strutted the catwalk in support and closed the night in the grand finale by designer Furne Amato whose Grey Skies collection stunned the audience with drama and passion.
