Bombay Mermaid fashion brand - backstage - sisters on the runway NYC - Hey Mishka 2

I have amazing news to share! The Sisters on the Runway NYC show raised over $4K for the nonprofit Safe Horizon this past weekend—an organization that benefits victims of domestic violence, especially women and children.

I’m so proud that my little DIY brand, Bombay Mermaid, was given the honor of opening both shows on Friday and Saturday.

An enormous thanks to everyone who came out to support the cause and see the show.

There were some incredible collections on the runway. It reminded me just how much I love creative collaboration and merging efforts with designers, models, and stylists. This will be my last year doing the show, and it couldn’t have been a better send-off.

Here are some backstage snaps — and you’ll find a video at the bottom of the post.

Thanks to everyone who helped bring this collection to life, including my amazing models, Raffael Flores-Contreras (who also DJ’d the event in addition to capturing the backstage magic), Blair Morgan Reeves (who organized the whole show), and everyone who helped inspire and motivate me along the way.
