The biggest runway at Fashion Week NYC will be open for everyone when Dreamland Fashion Week in Central Park takes place on Saturday, September 9 from 3pm to 10pm. Grammy awarding winning DJ Diplo will headline with performances by Blond:ish and LP Giobbi. The main stage will feature a runway show spotlighting the stunning creations of Marco Marco.
With over 3,000 tickets already sold, Dreamland Fashion Week in Central Park will set the Guinness World Record for “The Largest Attendance at a Fashion Show”. The current record is 1,012 people, achieved at 2018’s Moscow Fashion Week. Dreamland aims to shatter the record with 5,000 attendees.
“In 2023, Fashion Week is about more than clothes,” proclaims Jake Resnicow, the event’s producer. “This will be a week in NYC when art, culture, and self-expression merge. It will be about breaking barriers, challenging norms, and promoting inclusivity.”
While most runway shows at New York Fashion Week are industry-only events and closed to the public, Dreamland Fashion Week in Central Park will be open to everyone. “We invite all to immerse themselves in a world of glamour, artistry, and empowerment,” Resnicow continues, adding that the event will include interactive art installations, vibrant pop-up shops, and collaborations with multi-media artists.
The full-length fashion show will be Marco Marco’s first in five years. The design house will unveil its latest creations and whisk audiences on a breathtaking and enchanting retrospective journey of founder Marco Morante’s most provocative creations. These are the looks that have adorned film icons and music legends and redefined the landscape of drag culture for the last twenty years. Each garment is a testament to the designer’s unwavering commitment to pushing boundaries and creating avant-garde pieces that defy norms.
Providing the musical background for the presentation will be another true innovator and cultural icon. Diplo has worked with Beyoncé, Britney Spears, Madonna and more on some of the biggest club hits. Like Morante, Diplo has also proven to be a strong supporter for diversity and equality. In 2019, he played a surprise set at Jake Resnicow’s Utopia event in Isla Mujeres.
Joining Diplo will be Blond:ish (a popular festival DJ who famously proposed to her long-time girlfriend Liana at last year’s Burning Man) and LP Giobbi, whose music and advocacy work has helped to promote equality within the industry and beyond.
A portion of the proceeds from Dreamland Fashion Week in Central Park will benefit City Parks Foundation, an organization dedicated to transforming New York City parks into dynamic, vibrant centers of urban life.
