Fashion on the Hudson

On Saturday July 13, the fashionably inclined came out to the Free Fashion on the Hudson show at the Riverbank State Park. The show, presented by Fashion Avenue News Magazine featured local and faraway talent. The audience in attendance was also dressed to impress. The models who sauntered down the catwalk varied in age and even included some school aged kids with serious attitude. Not only did the show feature fashion, but entertainment as well. Viewers enjoyed a violin performance, a little opera, and even some belly dancing.




Fashion Avenue News, who organized the event presented awards to notables in the fashion community and even presented a Fashion Icon Award to Spinderella of Salt-N-Pepa fame.




There were a variety of pieces included in the show from couture to more casualwear but a clear fan favorite was a dramatic floor-length purple evening gown. The audience responded with extra loud applause and audible gasps at its appearance.


Of the designers featured, one who truly stood out was Clarence Black an F.I.T. graduate. His collection utilized a palette of beige, champagne, and muted brown but the silhouette and details of his pieces were eye-catching. An especially unique piece was a floral-printed silk skirt suit with a rope belt. The shape of the sleeves and the collar really set the piece apart.

The cloudy skies definitely did not put a damper on the energy of the event and all who attended enjoyed the spectacle.
