Sunday, February 15, 2009
New York, NY –
Fashion week is underway, once again placing the spotlight of the global fashion industry squarely on the Tents in Bryant Park.

Alex Goldmark visited the African infused boutiques of Prospect Heights to see what fashion week means to neighborhood designers.
