Since 2012, VFILES has made a name for itself as an international community of individuals who love fashion in all its forms. VFILES founder Julie Ann Quay has long been an early supporter of designers like Jeremy Scott, Shayne Oliver of Hood By Air, Astrid Anderson, and Virgil Abloh of OFF-WHITE. In addition, VFILES launched its first in-house line last year, VFILES Sport Plus. The collection mixed soccer influences with cozy bombers and plenty of blaze orange outerwear.
As a staunch supporter of young and emerging designers, the VFILES Made Fashion Show at New York Fashion Week is always sure to excite. Each season the VFILES community picks four lucky designers that get the opportunity to show their line on one of the fashion world's biggest stages. This season's winners are Ximon Lee, Andrea Jiapei Li, Di$count Univer$e, and Julia Seeman.
More importantly, VFILES moved the collection uptown to Lincoln Center, the official home of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week (well, at least for one last season), where plenty of big-time designers throw down hundreds of thousands of dollars to show at the coveted "tents." We sat down with founder Julie Ann Quay to talk about this season's MADE Fashion Show, the four emerging designers showing their collections, and how the Internet has changed the rules of fashion and its relationship with the youth.
