Event description


The most anticipated fashion event of NYFW is back for Season 3 at the National Geographic Encounter Odyssey, located in the heart of the New York Theatre District, steps from the iconic Shubert Alley. The most talked about event during September NYFW, both nationally and internationally, continues to gain momentum with a stellar reputation for a quality production and radical technological innovation. Recommended by Fashion Week Online (FWO), hiTechMODA proudly became the gold standard for independent runway by having an affordable price point; the ability to entertain the audience, and still provide a production that highlights our designers, models and sponsors. Our mission is Designing Opportunity. hiTechMODA has gained traction as the show of shows, one you won’t want to miss. We bring together industry professionals, influencers, bloggers, buyers and innovation under one roof!

hiTechMODA brings you the most talented established, emerging designers in an unparalleled runway setting that incorporates a multi-disciplinary platform of unique fashions woven with aspects of dance, music, theatrical and visual entertainment against a sensational backdrop that is truly state-of-the-art. hiTechMODA is once again partnering with National Geographic to continue to promote sustainability, technology, promote self positivity and fair trade within the fashion community and beyond. In the spirit of creating legacy came the creation of the Sustainable ReGen Runway with a message of Planet. People. Purpose.

Our Season 3 has and continues to have both online and magazine coverage from National and International media.

HiTechMODA ONCE AGAIN WILL HAVE THE ABILITY TO PURCHASE FROM MULTIPLE DESIGNERS using state-of-the-art technology which will provide exclusive access for the audience to purchase outfits and items that are featured during our shows as they appear on the runway.

WHAT TO EXPECT? During this exciting fashion weekend, you will have the chance to experience multiple spectacular designer fashion shows, featuring local, national and international talent, catering to a variety of aesthetics and visions.

At HiTechMODA, we recognize that new trends in fashion are driven by diversity, inclusivity, radical innovation, technology, and sustainability. As such, we’ll be highlighting these key fashion drivers. You absolutely don’t want to miss

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.
