In addition to NID, Gardner was invited to New York Fashion Week to showcase her latest fashion glam line from 6 to 10 p.m. Feb. 10 during the “Runways on Fire”, showing at 440 W. 57th St. She will also feature her work in a showcase from 1 to 4 p.m. Feb. 11 during the “Beautiful You Fashion Tour” at the Skyline Hotel. With vigorous intent to represent her local community and rigorous casting calls, Gardner selected models, hair and makeup artists, as well as media relations, primarily from Ohio, to assist in presenting her collection.
