The runway show opened with the French Brand " Mouton Blanc ", exhibiting 20 looks and presented by the Japanese creative director, Sakuyo Miya.The " Mouton Blanc " collection, showcased a mix of predominant colors from purple, green petroleum, pink, orange, gold, blue, red and brown in most of its designs wore by the models on the runway.

In the second show, 19 years old rising star designer ' Imogen Evans ',  from Scotland, stormed into the runway with her second fashion show of her young career, exhibiting a collection called " Places We've been Touched "and who made her professional debut as a designer last season at the Vancouver Fashion Week Spring-Summer 2018.


The collection " Places We've Been Touched ", has been inspired by sexual

assault survivors and their stories. I wanted to use my platform to pass the mic onto sexual assaul survivors and allow them to share their experiences. I powered the message in instagram where people can share their stories to me and I got an overwhelming response. I basically individually  printed and painted the Quotes from their stories into clothing and that's the idea behind it." said Imogen Evans to SMI Fashion during a backstage interview about the concept behind her collection.

Imogen exhibited 12 looks on the runway and the colors used on her most of her designs are shade of grey, pink and navy.






















Ruth Zabetta from Zabetta Couture closed-out  NYFWK Fall/Winter 19 with the final fashion runway show, exhibiting  10 looks of women's day and evening wear for semi-formal and elegant occasions.

This was Zabetta's third time showcasing with CAAFD platform, using tapestry textile on her designs that make her collection stand-out.

Zabetta's predominant colors for this Fall/Winter collection used gray, rhinestones, black and light brown." Said Ruth Zabetta from Zabetta Couture to SMI Fashion, during a backstage interview about her collection.
