Event description

Description

Fashion designer Stella Nolasco from Puerto Rico, will return to New York Fashion Week February 2018 to show her FW/18 collection in support of the people of her home island, which is still suffering wide devastation following Hurricane María. The show will take place on the opening day of NYFW, Thursday, February 8th at 7pm at Pier 59 Studios.

Stella was working on her 2018 collection before the hurricane hit the island and her Spring fashion show was scheduled for the third week of October. However, not only was Stella's home flooded, but so was her studio and many of her seamstresses lost everything. From what she was able to rescue, Stella has created a FW/18 collection which will be presented during the runway show at NYFW.

Zulema Arroyo Farley, founder of the Artz Cure Sarcoma™ Foundation and a member of the Puerto Rican diaspora community has been passionately committed to helping Puerto Rico recover and thrive post Hurricane María, Stella and Zulema were both born and raised on the West Coast of Puerto Rico, an area which was heavily hit by the hurricane and has been difficult to get aid to, especially in the remote mountainous region.

Stella and Zulema have joined forces to provide medical aid to the West Coast of Puerto Rico, raising funds via donations from guests attending the show. This will be the first fashion event aimed at helping the people of Puerto Rico, as most telethons and fundraising events are music driven. The production and event itself will be a NYFW show, except it will be held for a cause.

The Artz Cure Sarcoma™ Foundation was created after Zulema's own sarcoma diagnosis in 2015. Shocked and appalled by the lack of sarcoma awareness and limited treatment options, she decided to use her business know-how to change the course of this rare and orphan type of cancer. Since Hurricane María hit, the foundation has evacuated over 100 cancer and ill patients via private charter flights, acted as patient advocate to sarcoma and other types of cancer patients needing medical treatment in the US, and has supplied medicines & medical supplies to children and patients with special needs.
