NEW YORK, Sept. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- On Saturday, September 7, 2019, The Nolcha Shows NYFW, a leading New York Fashion Week event spotlighting independent and emerging designers from around the world, in collaboration with InstaSleep mint melts, will host military spouses from around the country for an exclusive New York Fashion Week experience.
Military spouses will start their VIP experience with hair styling by ECRU New York and makeup by AOFM. "As a US Airforce veteran myself, I know firsthand the difficulties our military families face. It is a privilege for ECRU New York to have the opportunity to express our gratitude for their sacrifices," said Carmen DePasquale, CEO, and Founder.
Participants will sit front row at two runway shows at 12:30 pm for designers 3ZM x Lu Yang by YangLu and 3:00 PM runway show by Elf Sack. Throughout the day, they will also have access to the backstage, catered lunch by Chef Tova and the InstaSleep media lounge where they can join in on photos and video recordings for an upcoming InstaSleep commercial.
"We are excited to team up with these amazing individuals who give so much of themselves for our country. We want to make this day about them and ensure they have an amazing experience they will never forget," said Dr. Robert Lee, Co-Founder of InstaSleep.
"As military spouses and entrepreneurs, this is a welcome break from our busy lives. Experiencing fashion week close-up as VIPs is every girl's dream, and we are grateful to Nolcha and InstaSleep for giving us this exciting opportunity. We appreciate InstaSleep's continued support of military causes and our families," said Moni Jefferson.
Military spouses are the backbone of our military. Their quiet sacrifices should not go unacknowledged – having to uproot their lives to support their military members and deal with the constant stress of deployments and temporary duty assignments. These circumstances often mean moving every 2-3 years, leaving family and friends behind, which makes it difficult to establish careers and community. This special New York Fashion Week event will highlight military spouses, their sacrifices and perseverance. These are the type of role-models who should be in the spotlight.
