*continued We are extremely excited about providing this highly sought after capability which will turn the runway into a boutique and allow for purchase of items right off the catwalk. With our vendor & designer showcase, we will be among the first to successfully offer the ability for our audience to purchase from every designer, whether they are prêt-à-porter or couture. All items will have the capability to be ordered and delivered to the customer directly from an easy and seamless app on their phones, either during the show or days, weeks or months later. During the show, the price will be a super discounted offer that is good only for the time of the show, so be prepared! Our technology sponsor Savvy Tech is a world leading fashion - tech startup which brings users the latest in virtual fitting technology. Their ENLY platform allows shoppers to virtually try on designer clothing with their own avatar to see fit and functionality allowing for accuracy and further confidence in purchasing garments that the wearer will likely not return due to sizing issues. Buymyrunway.com will provide an exclusive live video stream that allows a remote viewing audience the ability to purchase the clothing from most of the hiTechMODA designers as well! We are proud to launch this highly anticipated capability and invite you to make history with us! Be a part of the retail disruption and support the designers you care about directly!

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

The ticketed cocktail networking hour is open to all purchasers, but you must be 21 or older to consume alcohol. SOFA seating with champagne is available for purchase to all ages, but only those 21 or older will be able to have champagne. ID required for verification of age.

What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?

NYC is well known for its yellow taxis, as well as Uber, Lyft and Via for private cars.

The two nearest parking garages are Icon Advance Parking (246 W 44th St) and Edison ParkFest (307 W 44th St). We have no ties to these garages and suggest calling them in advance of your arrival for pricing and availability.

NYC has one of the best subway systems in the world, it runs 24/7! Take any of the following trains to Times Square 42nd street and you will be within spitting distance of the venue: 1237ACENQRW or Shuttle from Grand Central.

The three nearest MTA bus stops are the southbound M104, the 7th Av/W 44th St stop; the north or westbound M42, SIM8, SIM8x, SIM22, SIM25, SIM26, or SIM30, as well as the eastbound M42, which all stop at W 42nd St/7th Av; and the northbound M20 or M104, stopping at 8th Av/W 43rd St.

NYC does also have street parking, but this is very hit or miss and we suggest the above alternatives to save yourselves from being late or paying city fines should out of towners park incorrectly.
