nolchas fashion week 2010

The 2010 Beyond the Runway Award (in association with LooseButton) was an exciting opportunity for Nolcha Fashion Week.  Based in New York City, Nolcha is an award-winning events production and marketing agency specializing in fashion, retail and social impact.

Ileana Rojas-Bennett and her Greenville-based Maleku Jewelry Designs was awarded the 2010 Beyond the Runway Award at the conclusion of New York Fashion Week. Maleku Jewelry broke a 24 year span in which the Fashion Industry had not recognized a jewelry designer on the runway – only dress designers. Maleku jewelry with designer Ileana Rojas Bennett competed against 37 dress designers and accessories designers from all over the world.
