Art Hearts Fashion kicked off its New York Fashion Week schedule with an array of design talent and a partnership with Northwell Health and Domingo Zapata to raise funds for the hospital’s adolescent and pediatric mental health initiative at the famed Ziegfeld Ballroom in midtown Manhattan.
The evening kicked off with L’Amor By Liat Moradi collection of fresh little black dresses with innovative and architectural cut-outs. Next came men’s swimwear modeled by hunks in trunks by designer Argyle Grant.

Then, famed artist Domingo Zapata graced the stage and announced his partnership with Northwell Health to leverage the power of art, raise awareness for the urgent need for solutions, and mobilize everyone who cares about getting all young people the care they deserve. The models came down the runway in scrubs with masks painted by Zapata in a stoic homage to the pandemic and healthcare workers. The masks were painted in bright colors in Zapata’s signature style and served as a reminder to guests that though mask mandates are being lifted globally, the pandemic is not over and its after-effects on mental health are far from over.
The next set of shows began with House of Junon’s over-the-top dazzling costume pieces that were oozing with Glamour. Colombian designer Julian Ruiz followed with incredible elevated menswear pieces that made you understand why Julian is a designer for one of the world’s biggest pop stars, Juanes. Influencer and model Barbara Castellanos stunned with her evening gowns. Dominican Lebanese designer Giannina Azar closed the night with an impressive collection of stunning red carpet-worthy gowns.
The show’s location at the famed Ziegfeld Ballroom was the perfect backdrop for the event hosting top influencers, editors, and tastemakers. Guests sipped cocktails by Neft Vodka between shows and were treated to DJ beats. Notable celebrities in attendance included rapper Mariah Lynn, Tik Toker Mai Pham, Actor Garret Clayton, Professional Soccer Player Ricky Lopez-Espin, and Influencer and Model Jarry Lee.
