Updated: Mar 27, 2023

Since its conception in 1943 by the late Eleanor Lambert, every year thousands of fashion enthusiasts — artists, designers, models, and influencers alike — make their way to the city where dreams are made for the most anticipated event of the year: New York Fashion Week.

Haitian designers, models and influencers weren’t shy of attendance, either, as they were seen strutting the fashion runways and flaunting their best NYFW street style looks. Check out 7 of our fellow Haitian fashion lovers who served us lewks on (and off) the runway during the 2022 New York Fashion Week in New York City.

Haitian American blogger and influencer, Emmy Petit, makes a bold statement in a Bar III x GooGoo duster as she roots for “everybody black” and makes her presence known at the Stephen Goudeau fashion show in NYC.

Mideline Phelizor — better known as Miss Universe Haiti 2022 — fiercely represents for Haitians around the globe as she struts down the runway in a Victor dE Souza couture garment, Spring-Summer 2023 collection.

Amongst the 28 black-owned fashion brands showcased in NYFW was Victor Glemaud, the statement knitwear fashion brand by Haitian American designer, Victor Glemaud. The fashion haus premiered its Spring-Summer 2023 collection at the Rockefeller Center where hundreds of attendees witnessed its glory.

Haitian-American model, celebrity stylist, and creative entrepreneur, Amiraa Vee, spotted on the swaggy streets of New York City on her way to the Marni fashion show — which, according to her, “was a vibe.”
