StylePointe – New York Fashion Week
The art of dance shows expression through movement. When you mix this expression with fashion & style you get StylePointe. The Dixon Place presented this creative blend for New York Fashion Week enthusiasts showing that you can be stylish in dance. BRASH! Magazine was fortunate enough to get a preview of StylePointe before their big show on Sept 15, 2016, to see what this year’s presentation had in store. Fashion designers dressed the dancers to show off their latest designs as they adorned the runway and stage with intricate moves.
The event was produced by Sangeeta Yesley of CreativePerformances.com while Clinton Edward served as the emcee. StylePointe was our first experience in seeing a fashion presentation showcased in this artistic sense and needless to say, the styles, choreography, and dancers did not disappoint. Everyone involved did a phenomenal job as the showcase provided exclusive looks at each garment while enjoying a ballet show on the catwalk. Two great experiences in one!
BRASH! Magazine would like to thank the Dixon Place & StylePointe for having us at this special preview. Here are a few looks from the event and more will come in the Sept/Oct issue of BRASH! Magazine Available Now!
