Since its founding, Flying Solo has opened two locations, including the flagship store in SoHo and The Copper Room – catering to VIP clients, major stylists and editors, and celebrities including GiGi Hadid, Alicia Keys, Cardi B and Natalie Portman to name a few. Flying Solo also runs a YouTube channel featuring “A Day in the Life of” their designers, and an insider look at castings, fittings and day-to-day operations.
Launched and fueled by a community of designers in the summer of 2016, Flying Solo is a revolutionary approach to fashion houses. Elizabeth Solomeina, co-founder of Flying Solo said “We asked ourselves, ‘What if we collaborate instead of compete? What if we can create a successful brand that can change retail, and a model that can benefit designers?”
Cult fashion bible NYLON Magazine is their official media partner for this NYFW season, and will be covering the entire show; front house and backstage. Furthering their dynamic list of partnerships, Flying Solo is supported for the fourth season by ECRU New York for hair and make-up.
Flying Solo collaborated with YouCam Makeup for an instant virtual try-on, using true-to-life augmented reality (AR) and artificial intelligence (AI) technology creating a completely new, elevated user experience that translates the glamour of NYFW into a personalized, interactive beauty try-on. The collaboration will include two new looks debuting at this season’s show, featuring unique airbrush accents and colorful lashes which
will be presented on the runway models during the show, as well as two throwback beauty looks from past Flying Solo fashion week runway shows.
The digital home for Flying Solo is @flyingsolonyc across Instagram, Facebook, and Twitch, where the show will be livestreamed, featuring exclusive designer content.
