High School of Fashion Industries to Honor Angelo Baque

The High School of Fashion Industries (HSFI) will hold its student fashion show and fundraiser on May 24 at Gansevoort Plaza within the Meatpacking District. The event will honor Angelo Baque, founder and inventive director of Awake NY, with the Visionary Award, and global logistics provider UPS with its Fashion Equity Award.

The thirty fifth annual event is in partnership with the Meatpacking District Management Association. It marks the primary time the event will happen in a community space. The style show will happen at 6:30 p.m. and the awards ceremony will follow at 7 p.m. The show and awards shall be held outdoors, with a rain date of May 25.

“I’m grateful for this recognition and the implausible work we did alongside UPS for 2022 NYFW in support of HSFI. Still, the true honorees are the youngsters, teachers, administrators and supporters of HSFI, who’re shaping the longer term of fashion,” said Baque.

Previous HSFI honorees have been Ken Downing, Ruth Finley, Jeffrey Kalinsky, Tracey Reese, Daniela Vitale and Gary Wassner, amongst others.

Daryl Blank, the principal of HSFI, said, “The past three years have been a number of the most difficult at HSFI for college students and school alike. Showing within the Meatpacking District, considered one of Recent York’s top style destinations, is inspiring for your complete school. Furthermore, we’re beyond thrilled to be honoring Angelo Baque, founder and inventive director of Awake NY, and UPS for his or her overwhelming support of HSFI and generous BIPOC scholarships.”

Jeffrey LeFrancois, the Meatpacking District’s executive director, added, “We’re thrilled that our plazas will grow to be runways for this 12 months’s High School of Fashion Industries Student Fashion Show. The longer term of fashion has at all times come from Recent York City, and the Meatpacking District is a destination for style and innovation, making it the proper backdrop for college students to showcase their creativity. We will’t wait to see their final creations.”

Three Latinx students will receive UPS scholarships for $25,000 each, which is able to go toward their college education from funds raised by donations from UPS and Baque.

The event highlight shall be a runway show presented by the graduating senior class, including students’ designs, models, styling and choreography. All year long, the category is mentored by a listing of industry designers and leaders who attend events akin to the HSFI Profession Day and the Fashion Show Preview, a critiquing process leading as much as the ultimate designs and show.
