Every Year towards September millions of people gather together to celebrate NYFW. This year Times Square had a special showcase for NYFW organized by IGY Fashion. IGY fashion is a partnership between Warren Riley who is the founder and chairman and Lady Deedra DePalma who is the Chief Executive Officer. The show was produced by a David S. Zucker, who has worked on variety of movies, TV and charitable projects worldwide.
This particular Fashion Event was the unvelling of FASHION 4 PEACE presented by The Miss Globe Pagent. Baroness Olga Papkovitch with her PopImpressKA Art Couture Collection wowed the crowd was. In 2008, Olga CEO & founder of PopImpressKA Journal started an incredible clothing and accessory collection called PopImpressKA. She put her copyrighted original art pieces on silk in a form of a quilt and combined them with variety of silks and other materials that gives her collection an elegant, classic and trendy look. Each dress, skirt, blouse and shirt are original one of a kind pieces. Her clothing collection also includes bags and men’s apparel, such as shirts, pants, ties and bow ties and vests. Olga’s Inspiration and Muses are her mother and this year a young musical artist Nik Hartfield, who debuted this year with her at Times Square.
Olga’s mother and people that Olga works with inspire her to create her line in order to bring elegance, creativity and sophistication forward, so when people wear her garments and accessories they feel confident, sophisticated and feel positive.
Olga’s show also included a few other talented artists and models, such as Goran Subotic, who danced on point in PopImpressKA Art Couture in a colorful charmeuse silk shirt and black silk pants. Goran paired with dancer and Model Stefaniya Makarova.
One young model who debuted with her runway walk at Times Square was Saffron from California.
The performance started with a performance of Nik Hartfield. Having a background in the performing arts, Nik has always been around a creative environment. She was trained in ballet, African dance, tap, swing dance, jazz, modern/contemporary and hip hop since the age of five. She continues to dance today with every opportunity granted. However, music has always been a “hidden talent” of hers. She grew up singing in the church choir and even had a few solo’s at her performing arts center. This year Nik started working with Baroness Olga Papkovitch and her PopImpressKA Art Couture Collection. Nik is managed by Stuart “Mookie” Sanders who is artist manager, producer and also assisted with PopImpressKA Art Collection.
The Dj that rocked the music during the show is “DJ Shuttle” Shabazz.
