Washington Heights’ contribution to New York Fashion Week returns to the United Palace for three nights in September, presenting international designers and welcoming the public to experience the excitement of the runway through live-streaming. Now in its third year at the Palace, UFW is expanding to offer more shows and open the doors to the ritzy world of fashion for more people.
Unlike most fashion events that are restricted to all but the most exclusive audiences, UFW will live-stream the action on the VIP runway so guests seated in the theatre can watch on the Palace’s 50-foot screen. Unlike most live-stream runway shows, the UFW live-stream will include a hostess providing behind-the-scenes interviews with the designers.
Tickets for this live screening will be available at the United Palace ticket center.
WATCH THE SHOWS LIVE, Thursday, September 10th & Friday September 11th.

“By offering the live stream,” said UFW founder Albania Rosario, “we wanted to make sure that local residents and anyone who has a passion for fashion is given the opportunity to experience the excitement of fashion week.”
