Acid NYC


Independent fashion brand ACID NYC will return, for the third season, to present their Spring/Summer 2017 collection during the Nolcha Shows during New York Fashion Week, taking place on September 12th at Artbream.


The Nolcha Shows, held during New York Fashion Week and now its in eighth year, is one of the city’s leading platforms for global independent fashion designers and welcomes returning sponsors NeoGrid for Fashion, Citibank and JR Ewing Bourbon.


New York born Evelyn Luna and Scott Chester began working together on design projects in 2001. 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. Their first project 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.


Today ACID NYC’s signature style is edgy fashion forward prints on wearable body conscious designs featuring natural silks and high performance fabrics. Influenced by hidden beauty in their surroundings, the Spring/Summer 2017 collection is inspired by languishing on the sand in silk and the blow of the breeze of salt air.


Evelyn Luna, designer, ACID NYC comments; “”We are happy to be once again working with our friends at Nolcha. They always have everything covered! We do the design work and they give us the platform to present and get the media to attend.”


Designers showcasing alongside ACID NYC in the main collective runway show include returning designer Rohitava Banerjee and debuting brand Samantha Leibowitz.


Kerry Bannigan, Co-Founder, Nolcha Shows shares; “We love welcoming ACID NYC back to our runway each season and watching their brand grow from strength to strength. It is inspiring to watch the industry continue to support the brand and more so see the evolution of the designers and their vision.”
