Most designers at NYFW spend upwards of $100,000 per show. With costs escalating and the need for runway events to showcase designers, the demand for independent public fashion shows arose. These shows have filled an accessibility void and have done so to sold-out crowds, and at an average ticket price of $35.
hiTechMODA’s September 2018 show met these needs, with our models being scouted by agencies directly from the runway, and with our designers making connections within the industry, creating opportunities to increase exposure and sales.

Each collection must represent the season of the show which is current merchandise.
