Dreamland’s NYFW show breaks the Guinness World Record

For many, attending a coveted Fashion Week show is just a far-fetched dream – but it can become a reality at this weekend’s Dreamland.

That’s what’s so special about it Dreamland: Fashion Week in Central Park: It is open to everyone.

“A lot of fashion week is exclusive — you have to be on a guest list, you have to be a friend of a friend,” Dreamland producer Jake Resnicow told The Post.

According to the high-powered event producer and recipient of the OUT100 Most Influential LGBTQ People of the Year award, the exclusivity doesn’t match its values. His community, he said, had been “on the sidelines for so long.”

Even better, Saturday’s outdoor bonanza is expected to end the Guinness World Record for participation in fashion shows already established in 2018 by COFFEECELL in Moscow, Russia and attended by 1,012 people.

The unforgettable party has a capacity of 5,000 – and almost all tickets priced between US$60 and US$100 are sold out.

“Having a safe space where we can come out, express ourselves and where everyone is welcome and everyone is included is paramount – and I’m really excited to be creating this platform here,” said Resnicow, who previously produced Dreamland Pride in Central Park.

“By opening it up to everyone, it really allows everyone not only to party and enjoy the shows, but also to express themselves in their own way.”

At the heart of Dreamland is an award-winning designer Marco Marcothe brand idea of ​​Marco Morante, who has dressed the likes of Jennifer Lopez, Shakira and Katy Perry and is described by Resnicow as “iconic”.

At his NYFW show at SummerStage in Central Park, Marco Marco will present a vibrant collection that celebrates his impressive 20-year career with a star-studded runway – his first in five years.

“Fashion has been so much a part of our community and to connect those two worlds in a way that is inclusive rather than exclusive was really special and unique,” said Resnicow.

“It’s going to be really special and unique that everyone will remember,” Resnicow said.

“Fashion has been so much a part of our community and to connect those two worlds in a way that is inclusive rather than exclusive was really special and unique.”

But the entertainment doesn’t stop there – performances from Diplo, LP Giobbi and Blond:ish are also scheduled to make the 7-hour event ‘special’.

While “anyone can go to a party,” Resnicow insists the day-long party will exceed expectations due to its “immersive arts and activities,” and even the Marco Marco catwalk, he said, will be “integrated into the party.”

In addition, a portion of Dreamland’s proceeds will benefit the City Parks Foundationan organization that makes parks vibrant hubs for communities through educational programs, sports, arts and more across the city.

What’s better than that? For Resnicow, he hosted the once-in-a-lifetime event in Central Park, where he always dreamed of hosting an event.

“When you’re in the park, when the sun goes down, the stars come out, and all the lights come up in the trees,” he said, “it’s like nowhere else.”
