A true artist, designer Gary Harvey brings humor and wit to his upcycled couture gowns, constructed from dumpster-bound materials such as copies of the Financial Times, old baseball jackets, and empty skincare packaging. Although more theatrical than practical, Harvey’s innovative, show-stopping numbers sear themselves into your memory. Truly, an unforgettable way to kick off New York Fashion Week at the GreenShows.

The war on poverty has been going on for almost 50 years and instead of less we see more…enough already with the non-sense!
