NYC Fashion Week features ALICAT. Next stop? Lincoln Center

ALICAT Avril Lemieux featured her new designs, while incorporating a number of pieces by designer Nailah Lymus, this past Saturday during NY’s fashion week. It’s impressive to see where ALICAT’s come in just a year and a half. In February 2010 she featured her handbags in a runway show at a lounge in midtown. February 2011 found her again in a lounge but this time featuring a clothing line that coincided with her handbags in the West Village. Seven months later we find her at DANY studios showcasing 15 looks from “The Gods – Rise Of The Beetle Collection”. And just like her collection there’s nothing to stop her from rising. I’ve no doubt it’s just a matter of time before she’s dominating Lincoln Center. Here are a number of images I captured backstage and a few from her runway show:
