SS18 New York FASHION WEEK

Downtown shares Vivienne Tam’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection was inspired by the action-adventure film, Monster Hunt and its sequel, Monster Hunt 2, produced by Bill Kong and directed by Raman Hui. The collection reflects the mountains and river landscapes depicted in the film and features its main character, Wuba. The film’s lush imagery finds expression in prints and colors reflecting nature – blues, greens, sands and other earth tones with touches of aurora corals, misty mauves and dusky pinks – rendered in soft denim, cotton twill, silk voile, silk chiffon, lace, and fine mesh.

Signature mesh overlays and hand-crafted embroideries depict Wuba and other mystical creatures such as the double headed crane and fabled nine tailed fox in a magical dreamland where imagination makes all possible.

Silhouettes are airy, relaxed and comfortable but are given shape by sash belts at the waist and sleeves and artful gathers. East meets West and Yin meets Yang – with a nod to the masculine in boxy, oversized coats and dusters with a Daoist influence to feminine, ruffled dresses with asymmetric hems and ruched blouses with a romantic flair.

The collection speaks to a playful journey of the mind, from fantasy to modern, urban chic. Vivienne Tam caused an exciting stir at the finale, when Wuba walked the runway with Vivienne Tam, preparing him to step onto the international stage as Monster Hunt 2 will be simultaneously released worldwide by Sony Pictures in major Asian territories and Lionsgate in North America and the United Kingdom.

Grace Capobianco, CEO/Publisher of Downtown Media & Production was born to be a visionary. She has spent the majority of her life working, developing and marketing innovative media products that not only engage and inform but also bring entire communities together. Utilizing her personal vision as a professional guide, Grace started her first company, Tropical Publishing, when she was just 27 years old and from this moment on, she knew that entrepreneurship was her passion. On a perpetual quest to bring innovative and relevant news to communities, she also created, developed and published the first ever Chamber of Commerce magazine for the Palm Beaches, The South Florida Office Guide. Evolving within the realm of publishing, she moved on to launch Up The Coast magazine in the 1980’s, a guide to Jupiter, in north Florida, where the population aggrandized from 9,000 to more than 70,000 today, and then continued to hone in on niche markets with the launch of publications like Alternative Medicine and NewBeauty. Simultaneously, she launched ATSI, a telecommunications company, which sold Mitel and Siemens products to her publishing clients. The idea of Downtown Magazine NYC was born for Grace in the wake of the devastation of 9/11. A Lower Manhattan resident at this time, Grace saw firsthand the incredible sense of community the neighborhood had demonstrated during these trying times, as well as its immense strength and perseverance. She explored every angle of launching a magazine that would speak to this community but initially felt the timing was just too soon. It wasn’t until 2010 that Grace felt the community was ready to hear its voice and launched Downtown Magazine NYC.
