On Saturday, September 7, 2013 designer Haneefah M. will debut her Spring/Summer 2014 Women’s Wear Collection at the Hotel Pennsylvania (NY) at 1 p.m.
The feminine, fun and flirty women’s brand brings clean lines of flowing textures to the stage. Reflective of the poised yet playful designer, Haneefah M. debuts a line that could be found hanging in a boutique in the Beverly Hills or on a summer resident of Martha’s Vineyard.
“NYFW has been a childhood dream that has now become a reality. From reading fashion magazines in grade school to sketching dresses in high school, dressing models in college then designing full time. Everything has come full circle and I’m enjoying the ride,” says Haneefah M.
With decades of designing, in 2011 Haneefah began focusing on production. For seasons, Haneefah has worked many positions in production including with the Emerge! Runway Showcase, B. Michael, Nicole Miller, DKNY, and the Isabel Toledo Retrospective Collection.
Learning key aspects to runway show production coupled with attending some of the best runway shows New York Fashion Week has to offer, Haneefah M. has been able to develop her line and present a runway show to the standard and expectations of New York Fashion Week.
The Haneefah M. Spring/Summer 2014 Collection Runway Show will be held at The Hotel Pennsylvania, Penn-Top Ballroom 18th Floor 401 7th Avenue NY, NY 10001 at 1 p.m.
