Miss America walks alongside lifesize robots in Sami Chen's "Sound of Fashion" show

NYC- area fashion lovers checked out some of CRF supporter, Sami Chen of Happyfish Designs most recent work at the event opener in the 2019 New York Fashion Week yesterday. All while benefiting, The Cristian Rivera Foundation. This exclusive show featured Miss America, Nia Franklin, walking the runway alongside life-size robots. All proceeds raised was donated to The Cristian Rivera Foundation as they further their research in hopes to finding a cure for DIPG. Through the event, designer Sami Chen, used futuristic technology while incorporating it with her latest fashion collection in yesterday’s show, “Sound of Fashion”. While creativity roamed the air, the talented artist, Pesu, painted live as the show went on. Miss America, Nia Franklin blew us away with her astonishing vocal performance. Inspired by music and the arts, Chen took her musical talents to another career that allowed her to express creativity all while designing clothes for women’s fashion. Chen’s models rocked the runway in her beautifully designed wedding dresses to classy ensembles. We were drawn to the idea of Miss America and robots on stage at such an iconic event. The fashion show raised awareness and contributed to taking the foundation one step closer to reaching a world where the cure for DIPG can exist. Bold and beautiful!
