Manhattan, New York City | Oct 4, 2022
Monday Night in Midtown never felt this exciting – right behind Madison Avenue, home to the Balenciaga and Givenchy stores, is LAVO – one of Manhattan’s trendiest venues known for its coziest and elegant atmosphere, excellent food and prime New York City location. One block away is 745 5th Avenue & Central Park – home to ATF Fashion House NYC, host and organizer of the most anticipated ATFH Black Tie Gala that brought everyone in town.
Arriving all the way from Australia, Africa, Asia, Middle East, Europe, Latin America, Canada and other US States, Brands and Buyers flew to New York City from various parts of the world to promote their business and meet potential growth partners to collaborate with. Like on most early weekdays, one would have expected an Afterwork party vibe, but this was New York Fashion Week – Ladies all dressed up in flashy Haute Couture while gentlemen strangled up in stylish Bow Ties, and of course, LAVO did its thing.
It was quite an event, very different from the usual fashion gatherings we are accustomed to – A Shopping Booth setup within the Reception area, Standing Mannequins spread across the Cafe, Backstage setup opposite the dinner, Dozens of Brands not physically present in New York showcasing their products virtually, an in-person Runway Dinner replacing the usual T Stage and Surprise musical performances throughout the evening.
The ATFH Black Tie Gala was made possible, thanks to the support of sponsors like FASHINZA, a global manufacturing platform that helps fashion brands and retailers simplify their end-to-end operations from Design to Manufacturing. Speaking at the Gala, Jamil Ahmad, Co-founder and Chief Business Officer of FASHINZA explained how the company solves the biggest headaches in Fashion by helping Designers and Retailers locate the best available vendors suitable for their needs through a Sophisticated user friendly software that helps them manage their full A-Z operations from a mobile phone.
