ACID NYC showcase their Spring/Summer 2017 collection at the Nolcha Shows


Independent fashion brand ACID NYC will return to the Nolcha Shows for the fourth season, to present their Fall/Winter 2017 collection, during New York Fashion Week. The Nolcha Shows will take place on February 13th, 2017 at ArtBeam.


Designers, Evelyn Luna and Scott Chester, were both born in New York. Their first fashion collaboration was to develop a graffiti inspired print, a custom painted leather jacket and a customized Mercedes Benz petal car for Diane Von Furstenberg’s “Crosstown Traffic” clothing line in Feb 2002 NYFW. In 2006, they joined forces to create a line of men’s and women’s lifestyle driving and travel clothing named Acid and Luna Alkali. In 2015 they launched their men’s and women’s collection, ACID NYC, at the Nolcha Shows during New York Fashion Week. They have recently shown their collection at Miami Swim Week and the Coast Show in Miami. On February 13th, 2017 ACID NYC will also be launching their online store.


ACID NYC’s signature style is modern silhouettes with vibrantly designed prints. The designers derive inspiration from beauty hidden in their surroundings and find splendor in nature, technology and visual aspects of the urban environment.
