This year, the Style Fashion Week (SFW) team did something in the fashion and design community that has never been done before. On September 11, 2015, the SFW team had their designers, press attendees, guests, and staff pause for a moment of silence before every show to honor the lives that were taken during the tragic event that took place on Sept.11, 2001.

Style Fashion Week made their debut to kick off New York Fashion Week (NYFW) on September 10-12 presenting over 25 amazing designer runway shows and presentations in the beautiful & breathtaking iconic venue, Gotham Hall located 36th Street and Broadway. In association with the Eleanor Lambert Foundation they opened the season’s calendar with the “Official New York Fashion Week” Press Party! Editors, writers, photographers, bloggers, social media gurus, and the press industry’s elite from all over the world were in attendance!
