New York-based boutique VFiles has announced the labels it will show during New York Fashion Week in February. As shown in the image the designers are (starting with upper left, clockwise) Zurich’s Julia Seemann, New York’s Andrea Jiapei Li, the party-ready Australian-based Di$count Univer$e and New York based menswear line Ximon Lee. The show will open the Mercedes Benz-sponsored portion of fashion week on February 11th at Lincoln Center. This is the fourth time VFiles has presented a runway, whose goal in part is to build recognition around up-and-coming labels sold online and at the SoHo store.
Labels were chosen by a panel of mentors including stylist Mel Ottenberg; former Vogue editor & brand consultant, Candy Pratts Price; makeup artist James Kaliardos; Calvin Klein menswear desinger, Italo Zucchelli and Style.com editor-in-chief Dirk Standen.
