Dixon Place to Present StylePointe Dance Fashion Show During New York Fashion Week
Dixon Place is proud to present StylePointe, the ONLY Fashion Show collaborating with dance, during New York Fashion Week.
Bringing together two of NYC's most vibrant institutions, StylePointe is a platform for emerging fashion designers to showcase their work in collaboration with dance choreographers during Fashion Week on Thursday, September 15, starting at 7:30 pm.
Producer Sangeeta Yesley asked fashion designers with complete collections to submit work samples. Six wonderful collections were chosen from designers of diverse milieu. These designer apparels are introduced to 6 choreographers from unique backgrounds, who will create 6 different dance vignettes to showcase the fashion collections. This hybrid performance will have a runway to cat-walk and a floor to dance.
Dixon Place lounge opens at 6:15 pm for a special Cocktail Hour. VIP patrons will have exclusive seating and receive special product samples from sponsors. The duration of the show is approximately 60 minutes.
