Behind the scenes of New York Fashion Week

18 News' Gayle Ong got an all-access pass to Artistix's show

NEW YORK (18 NEWS) - Lights! Camera! Fashion!

New York Fashion Week is just wrapping up with designers laying out the hottest trends.

Elmira native Andy Hilfiger presented ARTISTIX Fashion by Greg Polisseni Monday night at the Metropolitan West in Midtown Manhattan.

18 News got an all access pass to the show.

Each of ARTISTIX collections is inspired by Polisseni's paintings. 

Polisseni is an artist from Rochester, New York.  Polisseni says his artwork reflects the inner beauty that arises from obstacles, turmoil, and conflict.

"The show is all about art, soul, rock and roll, you're never going to see this painting unless it came from my hands," said Polisseni.  "What we do at Artistix is try to make the world a more beautiful, more creative place and fun to wear actual handmade clothes from a handmade painting which is different than you've seen in the market for so long."

"Greg is very talented and we like to have fun," said fashion director Andy Hilfiger.  "He's used to doing it in a nontraditional way, I know both, I know corporate and I know not so corporate so it's kind of a blend of that as well."

Elmira native and fashion icon Tommy Hilfiger attended the show to support his younger brother Andy.

Hilfiger tells 18 News the ARTISTIX clothes are "street wear for today's youth."

"I'm very proud of my brother, he's doing a great job, when he's not playing music, he's doing fashion," Hilfiger said.

ARTISTIX showcased its Evolution collection that featured a beach, rock 'n' roll theme and pieces from its Harvest collection.
