Afterpay Elevates the Next Generation of Designers at NYFW: The Shows This February

The leader in "Buy Now Pay Later" (BNPL) payments, Afterpay (NYSE: SQ), unveils all-access experiences for its consumers as the title sponsor of New York Fashion Week: The Shows. As in previous seasons, Afterpay continues to break down barriers by opening access to the front row of what's next in fashion, while supporting the next generation of creators and celebrating the industry's power to create positive change.

This spring, Afterpay will spotlight and elevate the next generation of innovators at RunwayX by Afterpay, a new space at Spring Studios and the central hub for NYFW: The Shows, built exclusively to showcase emerging designers who represent the future of fashion. Over the course of four days, beginning February 11th, Afterpay will give consumers a front row seat to eight designer shows including Aknvas, BruceGlen, Colin LoCascio, KGL, Melke, Private Policy, Sukeina and Tia Adeola. These designers are flipping the script on traditional fashion - innovating everything from sustainable fabrics and inclusive designs, to new platforms for participation - and changing the industry and the planet for the better. Exclusive experiences from select designers include several innovative expressions celebrating Fashion Week.

Consumers will have an opportunity to win tickets1 to these shows as well as access The Afterpay Xperience, an immersive takeover of Spring Studio's ground floor celebrating the future of fashion. The Afterpay Xperience will feature show viewing parties, runway-inspired photo moments, a customization station for deadstock garments, a fashion cafe hosted by Bluestone Lane, DJs and more. All activities encourage customers to step into - and own - their personal style.

Additionally for the first time ever, Afterpay will host NYFW Afterclass with Colin LoCascio, a live, interactive workshop featuring designer, Colin LoCascio and entertainment journalist and fashion insider, Zanna Roberts Rassi. In this session, LoCascio and Rassi will work with NYC fashion students, including the High School of Fashion Industries, to reimagine the fashion industry by creating a sustainable look using deadstock fabric from LoCascio's upcoming Spring/Summer 2023 line. These next generation designers will recreate LoCascio's signature floral appliques live at Spring Studios - showcasing the beauty, innovation and opportunities in sustainable fashion.
