This one night only extravaganza is being sponsored by Ford Models, Sloane NYC, Prive, Eric Fischer Photography and Ano Okera Productions. It will showcase performances every forty five minutes by The Heavy Weather Band, Selena Mars, Saladu and the Afrolistics and Bell Book and Scandal. The Fashion Show will feature Ford Models premiering Sloane’s Summer Collection. Monica Watkins will launch her Paintings and her new book ‘the…ofitall’ that bares her poetry, artwork, body and soul with photography by Eric Fischer. The evening promises to keep you rocking to music as you allow the fashion and art to channel your artist within.
‘A Night of Music, Art and Fashion for New York Housing Works’ was formed out of the spirit of giving. It is an effort that will bring New York artists together to support each other while we build our community. According the producer Monica, “Stepping away from my insular experience to help uplift someone else’s experience is a different kind of gift for me. I think this is the start of many great fundraising efforts ahead and I feel very honored knowing that giving my work in this way will help to improve someone else’s life.” All the proceeds will benefit the New York Housing Works.
