GiGi's NYC 5th Annual Fashion Show

GiGi's NYC 5th Annual Fashion Show

GiGi's NYC 5th Annual Fashion Show on March 11th, 2023, was nothing short of AMAZING! It was our first full-scale in-person Fashion Show since 2019, and it felt great to be back in full swing! As usual, our model participants were FIERCE on the runway - they served looks, they exuded confidence, and they proved, yet again, why inclusion matters.

Our Fashion Show also caught the attention of Cheryl Wills from NY1 News and was even featured in Harper's Bazaar. What an honor! You can watch the NY1 News reel here, and to read the article in Harper's, click here.
