Capital Region fashion models glow on the runways of NYC

A group of local models is still basking in happiness after having gotten the chance of a lifetime last week. It was the biggest event in their careers and they are ecstatic.

They owe it all to one of the area’s top designers, Daniel Mozzes. His fashions are not only seen on the "Who's Who?" of Saratoga but are worn at most galas, teas and fashionable events.

Mozzes grew up in Europe. After living in Paris and Amsterdam, he ended up in Albany. Though he's had lots of success over the past 20 years, he's never gotten a chance to show his work at the much coveted, "Fashion Week" in New York City until now.

The opportunity almost never happened. Mozzes was told he could display nine outfits and choose from over 100 models there to wear them. He refused, saying he had to bring his own models, women from the Capital Region.

Last Monday was their big day and they rocked the runway.
