Along with London, Milan, and Paris, Fashion Week in New York City sets the tone for the fashion world. New York Fashion Week will be postponed in the Fall and tentatively set to resume in the Spring of 2021.
Viktoria Fox, a fashion model and actress from California will model in a show hosted by Marc Defang, one of the nation’s leading prom, bridal, and pageant footwear and accessory designers. She will also be featured on a NYFW billboard in Times Square.
She said she is very excited about the opportunity, “I’ve always loved wearing Marc’s shoes for pageantry, so being a prime time model for his brand is a dream come true”.
Fox, a newcomer to the Miss USA, and Miss United States pageant systems, says “Pageantry is a bit different from modeling because you get to promote your platform and advocate for causes you care about. I’ve networked with so many wonderful people, and been exposed to amazing opportunities through pageantry.”
Fox admires Defang and his work immensely. “Marc does such a wide variety of fashion designing, not just shoes, but sportswear! I absolutely love his work – It’s a piece of art! Marc’s shoes are incredibly comfortable, and many are customized with different crystal color combinations. They sparkle and made for the big stage.”
Organizers at NYFW said Fox will be walking the runway in the Spring of 2021. They added, “We have worked with many models over the years, but this is the first time we’ll have a Eurasian model! We had no idea her nationality, but her exotic features caught our eye. She just looks very unique and has very distinctive features which led me to contact her agent to invite her to the show.
Fox’s mother said she is very happy to see her daughter doing what she loves. “I used to feel guilty about always pushing education on her, so to see her thrive and grow into a successful adult is something any parent would be proud of.”
Fox said the opportunity means a lot to her. “I fully intend to make the most of the opportunities given to me, but more importantly, give back to those who helped me along the way.”
