Once upon a time, when New York Fashion Week was under the tents at Bryant Park, Facebook was a novel platform for Ivy League students, and Kanye West was the "Jesus Walks Guy", STYLE 360 launched a fashion show platform aimed at helping designers break into the scene.
Fifteen years, and countless iconic moments later, STYLE 360 presented by Klarna is still going strong and offering emerging designers a home where they can have a more holistic fashion show experience, supporting with things like hair, makeup, advertising, front of house, back of house and press support. Their goal was to give these first timers a less daunting and stressful experience.
Designers who got their start with STYLE 360 include Rodarte, Rebecca Minkoff, Kim Kardashian x BEBE, Abbey Dawn by Avril Lavigne, Angela Simmons, Daisy Fuentes, Kristin Cavallari, Eva Longoria and Ashley Graham as well as Serena Williams, Studio 189 by Rosario Dawson and Abrima Erwiah, and Kittenish by Jessie James Decker, all whom are showing again this year.
This year's STYLE 360 includes three days, nine designers, celebrity guests and musical performances.
