The notorious rooftop of the iconic Eagle in New York City was the perfect backdrop for the Fashion2Fetish runway show that took place on Saturday, June 18th. The day was blazing hot with the sun beaming down on the very hot fashion that was strutted down the runway by some of New York’s hottest models featuring everyone’s favorite, Gregory Nalbone. Q Ellis, the current Mr. Eagle was a crowd pleaser as was Renan Leal of Barracuda, Anthony Raul, Mikey Hernandez, and Yvonne Oyola. Sexy beats by DJ Joey Zeb kept the crowd happy as did cocktails, courtesy of Skyy Vodka. The pre-rooftop party offered plenty of stimulation with a pre-show by Luke George who tied up a submissive boy, as did the launch of PREPOSTEROS by Rico Noguchi. The post-Queer zine has a camp-pornographic sensibility [hatched in the underground sewers of Columbia University] dedicated to the hardworking outcasts, living revolutionaries & post-gay sexy fuckers of New York City who’ve grown tired of the new gay mainstream culture.

The leather accessories and fashion were the featured designs of Manskins by Christophe Andre. Andre also premiered his brand new Femskins with sexy looks like the perforated pale pink dress with front pockets and a silver metallic mini skirt. The day also introduced PULSE ACCESSORIES, which were donned by a few models as well as styled by Steve V. Rodriguez.
“PULSE ACCESSORIES will launch this Fall with an e-commerce site featuring both original leather accessories, as well as hand curated items by designers like Manskins and Tribal Sons”, says co-owner, Steve V. Rodriguez. “We’re proud to introduce our new empowering designs and can’t wait to unveil the full line in the Fall”. Rodriguez says that PULSE ACCESSORIES will follow up with a brick and mortar experiential boutique in early 2017.
The runway show and event benefitted Visual Aids which features HIV positive artists and continues the conversation and encourages dialogue of healthy sexual practices, because AIDS is not over.
