MADE Fashion Week to bridge the worlds of sports, fashion and technology

MADE, the downtown creative hub, is thrilled to announce the return of MADE Fashion Week, running February 12-18, 2015 at its presentation spaces at Milk Studios and at The Standard, High Line. The F/W 2015 season will once again gather mass appeal with new initiatives that reveal how fashion, sports, and technology mix.

"Since its inception six years ago, MADE Fashion Week has always been a connective platform that promotes creative experimentation," said Keith Baptista, co-founder of MADE, "and this season we'll keep it fresh with new designers, new programming, and amazing brand partners who enable us to showcase fashion, wearables, music and the visual arts."

This season MADE welcomes Wes Gordon, KTZ, Astrid Andersen, Brock Collection, Thaddeus O'Neil, Joyrich, Ammerman Schlosberg, Marissa Webb, Sandy Liang, and Sons of William, along with Chromat, Jeremy Scott, The Blonds, Baja East, Cushnie Et Ochs, Patrik Ervell, Tim Coppens, and Dion Lee, and offsite shows from Nicopanda and Public School.

Mayor Bill de Blasio is to speak at Milk Studios at 5pm on Wednesday the 11th to kick off Made Fashion Week. He is "expected to reveal several fashion initiatives as part of a multiprong policy package to stimulate manufacturing, production and investment in New York’s garment industry," says WWD.

Other points of interest include an opening reception on the 11th for Made in NY, which celebrates the City's thriving fashion and cultural community, hosted by the New York City Economic Development Corporation and MADE; the return of Maybelline New York as the F/W's official cosmetics partner; and leading consulting, strategy, digital and technology company Accenture continues its collaboration with MADE Fashion Week on programming that explores fashion and technology, this season adding sports to the conversation. The company will showcase ten of next greatest wearable technologies..
