Are you excited for Staten Island’s first 3 day charitable event? Well you should be!
Fashion Island will be taking place on September 6-8 in Staten Island as a prelude to Fashion Week festivities. The event hopes to bring attention to the vibrant fashion scene in Staten Island as well as recognize all of its cultural treasures. All of the designs submitted to Fashion Island’s “Sketch Your Style” design competition were inspired by landmarks in the borough. (See our previous blog post for more info…)
Head over to the Staten Island Mall on September 7th to view finalists from the “Sketch Your Style” competition and have the chance to vote on your favorites in person! Then on September 8th, see Fashion Island models hit the runway in the top 3 designs and acquire some amazing pieces at a live auction of donated pieces. Click here for details and tickets.
Voting will go live on WouldYouRockthis.com in late July, but until then stay tuned here for sneak peaks! Below is a fashion illustration submitted by Savannah Shreves to the Fashion Island “Sketch Your Style” Design Competition. It was inspired by the Staten Island Zoo. Amazing!
