The world already knows September 11, 2013 as the anniversary of the tragedy of 9/11 and World Trade Center and Pentagon attacks, where we honored all of the individuals who lost their lives.
In an effort to honor the day, EMERGE! presented its sixth season of emerging designers during New York Fashion Week (NYFW). This season, EMERGE! A Fashion Runway Show, presented the ‘Fashion Innovator Award’ to living Fashion and Style Icon, Patricia “Pat” Cleveland.
