Maricel Marcantoni Art Fashion Showcase

     Lights, Camera, Fashion! Sony Hall was the place to be on Friday, February 10th during NYFW as fashion designer Gladys Scourtias, presented her collection called "MaricelMarcantoniArt". Each model confidently walked the catwalk wearing colorful garments and some also had matching handbags. These show stopping outfits were all full of pizazz and would uplift any sour mood in seconds. Gladys, who is half Greek / Puerto Rican has been a fashion designer for the past three years. Her inspiration comes from her aunt Maricel. Maricel paints local beach and floral scenery in Puerto Rico. Gladys takes pictures of her art and turns them into beautiful merchandise.

L-Stringz performing @ Runway 7

     Last but not least, what is a fashion show without any entertainment? As soon as Rhonda and Mya walked into Sony Hall after the press check in, they were greeted with lovely music by L-Stringz who played the violin. She has 16 years of experience as a musician and during NYFW she performed songs with her electric violin such as: Beyoncé (Cuff it and Deja Vu), Rihanna (Needed Me and Sex with Me), Unholy (Sam Smith), Under the Influence (Chris Brown), Trippin (Ella Mai) and more! L-Stringz states: "I have been musical all my life. I started off as a singer and dancer in the church but after my mother moved us from Wisconsin to Atlanta at the age of 7, I found the Violin. I was most inspired by my first music teacher, who actually told me that I wouldn't be as good as those around me as I was one of 2 black kids in the orchestra and the only one who played the violin. Because I was already musically inclined, it came easy after learning the basics. My goal musically is to be considered an all around artist just like Beyonce or Rihanna except using a violin! I want to introduce the violin in spaces that you normally wouldn't see such as: NYFW, NBA, etc. I also want to give back to the next generation, and show them other avenues outside of rapping and singing." For any booking inquiries, you can contact L-Stringz at

In conclusion, Runway 7 has brought together the best of the best in fashion, modeling and entertainment. Please follow these ladies as they reach their goals and continue to shatter glass ceilings.
