On Thursday February 13, 2014 a day most of the city was sheltering itself from a winter storm; EDGE Fashion Group joined Fashion Lovers, Fashionistas, Charity Supporters and Fashion industry professionals alike, who were weathering the storm to attend the closing show of Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion week at Lincoln Center.
It was definitely worth it to sit front row and witness the amazing designs of Pakistani New York City based designer Altaf Maneeshia. The featured designer was one of 11 to show at the FTL MODA+Art Hearts Fashion Presentation by the Aids Health Foundation.
Altaf Maneeshia debuted his Fall/Winter collection, delivering a captivating show to tantalize the senses with the fusion of Contemporary and High end Couture. The models strutted down the runway with hair full of volume, wearing bold designs sure to make a woman feel powerful and sexy. The designer mixed fabrics like leather, tweed and silk, creating ensembles accented with eye catching metallic waist cinching belts. I'm sure we all wanted to reach out and touch the ultra soft plush fabrics of the bold colored knee length coat and wraps.
Altaf Maneeshia is the first ever Pakistani New York based designer to show at Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week. Maneeshia is working on multiple projects including launching an online store. He has also completed projects for Louis Vuitton in Paris, Target, Nordstrom and the late Alexander McQueen. After witnessing such an amazing show, we are excited to see what is next for this boundary breaking designer.
