Fashion and art came together on a historic and unprecedented night in the successful fashion show of Spanish artist Domingo Zapata during the New York Fashion Week on February 10 at the Angel Orensanz Theater in New York.

Celebrities like actor Jordi Mollá, Alba Díaz Martín, daughter of designer Vicky Martín Berrocal and bullfighter Manuel Díaz "El Cordobés," actress Kelly Rutherford of "Gossip Girl," famous chef Jean-Georges and the painter's children: Paul and Domingo, walked during the show in support of the LGBTQ community.

Zapata presented the expectant audience the show "Be Yourself, Tags are for Facebook" to create awareness and tolerance about discrimination and homophobia towards the LGBTQ community. "Be yourself, we need a world without labels and with respect," said Zapata.

Celebrities and models wore pieces by great designers such as Marija Shatilo from Lace & Angels, Vicky Martín Berrocal, Commes Des Garçons and the famous bullfighter jackets from the artist. The dresses and half-naked bodies were intervened and painted by this master of art with messages in favor of human rights.

The proceeds of the show will go to the organization "Camp Aranu'tiq," which offers safe and fun camp experiences for transgender youth. This show created by the painter who fused fashion, art and awareness, has undoubtedly been one of the most important events of the New York Fashion Week.
