On Friday, February 8th, Artistix showed F/W 2019 collection titled “Harmony” during NY Fashion week at Industria Studio 10. Their runway-style presentation included twenty-seven total looks, fifteen women’s looks as well as twelve men’s looks.
This was the seventh time that Artistix showed it’s collection during NYFW. Their shows were previously presented at Cedar Lake Theatre, The Jane Hotel and the Skylark at Moynihan Station. The brand, which now sells at Macy’s nationwide, has become widely recognized for combining abstract art with vibrant color palettes to create unmistakable looks such as their signature camo print.
“Our goal is to put on a show that people are going to talk about,” said Polisseni. “This collection was based off a painting that I created called Harmony, the inspiration came from the idea of creating balance in art, fashion and in life.”
The show was invitation only and housed major celebrities such as Bianca Bonnie and Renny, both walking the runway for the brand. Previous shows were attended by Tommy Hilfiger, Lala Anthony Shiggy, Karrueche, Tim Hardaway Jr., Marky Ramone, Grand Puba and more. Shoes for the show were provided by Reebok with nails done by Yukie Natori. Other show sponsors included Essentia Water and Tao Downtown where the shows after party was held with Celebrity DJ Sophia Brody spinning tunes throughout the night.
“Our shows are about mixing music, art, and pop culture,” said Hilfiger. “Each season is about having fun and creating something new and exciting. This season, we featured an adventure theme which included moto inspired outerwear pieces and reflective accents.”
