FASHION 2 FETISH will present an exciting rooftop fashion show and party on Saturday, June 18th at the notorious Eagle NYC. Styled and Produced by the upcoming PULSE-ACCESSORIES, by Progressive Pulse, the event will flaunt Manskins fashion line and leather gear, by Christophe Andre in a runway experience. The looks will be featured in both fashion and fetish dualities, modeled by some of New York’s hottest hand selected models and downtown celebrities like Gregory Nalbone.
Conceived by producer, Steve V. Rodriguez, Fashion 2 Fetish will demonstrate how to take fetish gear and make a fashion statement, but also transition into our fetish fantasies. “I love
fashion, but when I discovered leather it changed how I conceive my looks everyday. Layering in a bit of fetish gear to your look is empowering, flirtatious and ultimately sexy. Just make sure to own your look by taking it all in, preferably in a full length mirror and be on your way,” says Rodriguez. Founder and designer of Manskins, Christophe Andre’s philosophy is that “leather needs to become your second SKIN, You need to wear it, not let it wear you!”
The event helps support Visual Aids, which utilizes art to fight AIDS by provoking dialogue, supporting HIV+ artists , and preserving a legacy, because AIDS is not over. Rodriguez thinks that the organization is a perfect beneficiary as fashion is art and Fashion 2 Fetish will provoke and stimulate conversation. “The infamous Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco began as a call to action to support HIV positive men. It’s fitting that our event is a prelude to the following day’s Folsom East Fair in New York City,” Rodriguez states. “Expect to be surprised and to celebrate diversity!”
PrEPostEROS, a new zine will launch at Fashion 2 Fetish by Asobi NY. The quarterly hand produced zine is a postqueer statement with a camp-pornographic sensibility, dedicated to the hardworking outcasts and postgay sexy fuckers of New York city who’ve grown tired of the gay mainstream.
