Artistix Fashion presented by Andy Hilfiger kicked off New York Fashion Week with a bang last night in the Meatpacking District. The show, which included 10 men’s looks and 20 women’s looks, included Latinx superstar Brytiago, who donned an emerald green reflective tracksuit and a bare chest.
Artistix, founded by artist and visionary Greg Polisseni, has participated in New York Fashion Week for eight consecutive seasons, becoming a staple in the New York City fashion scene. Known for their hand-painted prints and lively fashion week events, Artistix did not disappoint on either end for the debut of their Spring S/S 2020 collection.
Named Renaissance, after Polisseni’s painting of the same name, the collection featured orange and blue color stories while staying true to the brand’s mission of merging art, soul and rock & roll. Spotted in the crowed were fashion trendsetters such as Tommy Hilfiger, J. Alexander, DJ Cassidy, Marky Ramone, Dela Ghetto, among others.
“I can already tell you this was my favorite Artistix show yet,”
said Andy Hilfiger immediately following the finale.
“It’s all about the vibe. It’s about great models, great music and great clothes and that’s what we did tonight. Not to mention being the first to feature Brytiago on the New York Fashion Week runway.”
Jewelry was provided by Luxe Jewelers while shoes were sponsored by Emme Cadeau. Hair was led by stylist, Massimo DiCicco from Salon Firefly, while makeup was led by T. Cooper or Major Face. Alcohol was sponsored by Cheurlin.
