The 2012 NFL Draft concluded this past weekend. It is a yearly spectacle to watch if you’re a football fan. I make it a yearly tradition to do my fair share of scouting and mock drafts. One of the exciting aspects of the draft other than getting drafted by a professional sports team happens to be some of the lavish events that take place. The 5th Annual Fashion & Football NFL Draft Gala just so happened to be one of these events you couldn’t miss. It all took place on April 24, 2012 at Audi Forum in New York City. All of the athletes and celebs involved modeled outfits by Italian clothing company, Eredi Pisano. I will be looking forward to the 6th Annual Fashion & Football NFL Draft Gala.
The Fashion Reporter, online magazine for all things fashion, and parent company, Fashion and Football, produced an unforgettable fashion show during NFL Draft Week. Professional as well as college football players including Justin Tryon (NY Giants), Ramses Barden (NY Giants), Aaron Maybin (NY Jets), Matthew Rice (NFL vet), Josh Norman (Top 10 NFL Draft candidate), Kashif Moore (UCONN Draft Candidate), Evan Rodriguez ( Temple NFL Draft Candidate), fashion socialite Karim Ramos and notable fashion editors, all modeled suits by Eredi Pisano, an Italian clothing company specializing in fine garments as well as made to measure suits. “We are excited about our partnership with Fashion and Football and look forward to this highly anticipated annual event”, says Kenny Frimpong, Brand and Lifestyle Consultant at Eredi Pisano. The Grammy Award winning stylist, Eric Santiago along with The Glam Squad who outfitted participating players in some of the most impressive pieces from Pisano’s collection including wool suits done with suede elbow patches to tomato red oxford style shoes along with an array of vivid roped belts done in Italian leather finished off with silk pocket squares and must-have ties. In addition, Monster Cable unveiled their all-new, Diamond Tear Headphones during the runway portion of the event. Professional NFL players and college athletes paired the very stunning diamond headphones with which provides for the ideal finishing touch for a luxurious look. The world class headphones offering the sound of clarity with diamonds, will officially be announced this July.
Audi Forum provided the perfect space for this annual event in showcasing their line of exciting automobiles from the R8, A8, A7 and A6 models. Guests enjoyed home-style Italian lasagna and mozzarella salad provided by Contornos Restaurant located in midtown Manhattan offering a five-star menu that embodies an Italian Sunday family dinner.
