NEW YORK – Filipino celebrity designer Rocky Gathercole closed the recent I Get You Fashion or IGYF Fall runway show, dubbed as the premier fashion event during the annual New York Fashion Week.
“As a Filipino, talagang sobrang proud ako dahil napili nila ako to be part of the show and this is the first time in Times Square na gawin nila ito, ako pa ang finale. Sobrang nakakatuwa. I’m so happy,” Gathercole said.
The IGYF show brought high fashion to the masses right in the middle of Times Square in New York City where hundreds of thousands of people go to every day.
Gathercole’s designs have been worn by stars like Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Gwen Stefani and Paris Hilton.
Models were also excited to wear Gathercole’s showstopping collection.
“It feels amazing. I feel empowered as a woman. I feel absolutely phenomenal in it and super secured. It feels just fabulous,” said Christina Kalamvokis Dobre.
Model-actor Andrew James Bleidner said Gathercole’s collection was breathtaking.
“It was emotion woven into fabric. I think anybody that had the honor of wearing that line is truly blessed,” he said.
Next stop for Gathercole is the Phoenix Fashion Week in October where once again he will close the show.
