The Confessional Showroom held their NYFW runway show at Serafina in the Sky, over the POD Hotel in midtown. It was a tight space for an enthusiastic crowd and the runway was set up on the outdoor terrace. Unfortunately for the models it started raining right before showtime! But, as they say, the show must go on!

In New York City there are two well-known showrooms, Flying Solo and The Confessional Showroom. A showroom is where designers place their looks in order to get press and placements in magazines. Stylists go to showrooms to pull looks for editorials and for celebrity clients attending events.
