There were even two collaborations among this group of extraordinary people. Former graduates such as Hailun Zhou, Eden Slezin, Dina Marie Lam and Carlos Rodriquez attended the event. New York Fashion Week is the place to be for getting noticed. It is the fashion mecca in a sense, and the event takes place for an entire week. Skylight Clarkson Square is the actual location as it is the official residence for all things fashion.

There is so much work that goes into such a spectacular event. Scheduling, physical labor, deadlines, last-minute decisions and workshops constitutes what goes on behind the scenes. Runway time is around 15 minutes long, and it takes place in front of a jam packed house. Everyone who is anyone is generally here. This includes celebrities, potential career mentors, peers and the whole wide world. The designers come from all around the globe and all of them have diverse backgrounds. To basically state it, New York Fashion Week is one gigantic gumbo pot of talent.
