DEMAND FOR EXPOSURE

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 shows arose.  These shows have filled a void and have done so to sold out crowds, and at an average ticket price of $45.

hiTechMODA’s September 2018, 2019, February 2020 shows sold out weeks in advance.  Our models were scouted by agencies right off the runway, and our designers made connections within the industry that allows them to increase exposure and sales. hiTechMODA actively promotes our designers, both before and after the event, via our website and social media.
