Relaxed Fashion for Fide Fashion Week’s Men’s Shows

Songzio for Fide Fashion Weeks

Highly anticipated, this year’s men’s show from Fide Fashion Week is a mix of very wearable fashion coming from a mix of designer and pret-a-porter brands. With only four shows this year (we wish there could have been more) Day 4 is a definite must watch for menswear aficionados. Walking in the shows is a special guest model, Alex Minsky, a former marine who lost his right leg Afghanistan after his truck ran over a land mine. Alex is a fitness and underwear model, and this was his debut to strut down the runway.

Opening the evening is an emerging design duo from New York,the Burkman Brothers. Nominated for the GQ/CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) Best New Menswear Designer in America award in 2010, the Burkman Brothers is producing clothes that is both artistic in concept and wearable – a lethal combination for commercial success. They are currently part of CFDA Fashion Incubator.Their main inspiration were the colors, texture and cultural nuances they experienced in their travels.
