For the first ever New York Fashion Week focused entirely on men’s fashion, Gilbert implored designers on why New York is such a fitting destination for such an event. The designers cite the legendary fashion core’s “electricity,” pulse, lack of established style rules, individuality and even its griminess as fuel for their passion of New York City fashion. Todd Snyder even goes as far as to say that “Being in fashion, it’s the only place to be.”

The spot was produced by New York/Los Angeles-based production company/creative agency hybrid Hudson Media. New York Fashion Week: Men’s is taking place July 13-16, 2015.
