This season featured runway shows for 12 designers and was held at the Eyebeam Atelier in Manhattan. Nolcha’s first solo show on September 8th featured Katty Xiomara, who recently won the July 2014 Pret-a-Porter Sketchcolors Project Award. Her collection, a mix of “organic forms and geometric shapes” was inspired by “the art form of a chocolatier.” Actresses Kat Graham, Kristen Ruhlin, and Sammi Hanratty all showed up to the show rocking Xiomara’s designs.
Next, came the group show featuring designers Rinat Brodach, Mariana Valentina, Sofia Arana, Mimi Tran followed by several menswear designers including pants by Alberto, knitwear by Codice, shirts by Haupt, and sports jackets by Carl Gross.
