After grabbing a bite at the local pizzeria, and then a pastry at New York Muffin (their marble chocolate muffin with a Chai Latte warms the soul), I made my way to Glasslands Gallery (289 Kent Avenue also known as the building with the small red gate, right by the water) for night two of the Williamsburg Fashion Weekend 2011.
Arts and Fashion intertwine on this weekend in order to showcase and even debut the talents of young designers. Some pieces I had the privilege of see were by Argentinean designer Juanita Cardenas, professional/chic designer Nathalie Kraynina, abstract designer Hayden Dunham and edgy, punk rock designs by Total Crap Uninc.
Curated by Arthur Arbit, the Williamsburg Fashion show happens twice annually. This is its eight consecutive show.
The next Williamsburg Fashion Weekend will take place in September 2011.
