BRONX, NY—March 26, 2015—Bronx Fashion Week, LLC announced today their 2nd event after last year’s successful and historic first Bronx Fashion Week in the borough’s history. This year the event will be held at the landmark Old Bronx Courthouse in Melrose on May 9th from 5:00PM – 9PM sharing space with No Longer Empty’s exhibition ‘When You Cut Into The Present, The Future Leaks Out’

The event will feature a VIP Reception and pre-fashion cocktail party, product launches from diverse sponsors, as well as several performances.
“We are pleased to once again bring this major fashion event to The Bronx — the borough that has given so much to the industry where designers Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein were born and raised as were legendary fashion icons such as Jennifer Lopez and the late Lauren Bacal.” said Ed Garcia Conde, VP of Marketing and Public Relations for Bronx Fashion Week, LLC.
“The Bronx continues to influence the world of fashion as the birthplace of Hip-Hop and impacting the global urban wear scene.” added Garcia
The kick off event for the second year will be an unforgettable experience in another landmark setting—The Old Bronx Courthouse—which has captured the fascination and imagination of millions as it sat empty for the past 38 years.
Now, thanks to its owner, Henry Weinstein, and No Longer Empty’s exhibition, attendees of Bronx Fashion Week 2015 will also be treated to a world-class exhibition curated by NLE featuring approximately 20 artists both from The Bronx and around the world.
