NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – The final show of New York Fashion Week Thursday night ended with a blast of feathers, sequins and heart.

As CBS 2’s Dave Carlin reported, the eight featured designers were unafraid to put both women and men in bright colors, crazy patters, low-cut tops — and even no tops.

While everything was sleek under the bright lights, it was absolute chaos backstage, Carlin reported.

“It’s nerve-wracking in the sense we only have so much time before the seats fill up,” model Inga Lala said.

Threatening to set everything back were tricky temporary tattoos.

Before the show, hair and makeup designers buzzed around model Nofar, making sure she looked perfect and shiny strutting down the runway.

“The looks are really exciting,” Nofar said.

Not just coming down the runway but also in the seats, wearable art was making a statement at what was described as the edgiest show of Fashion Week.

The crowd’s enthusiasm for fashion was reflected in far-out style choices, CBS 2 reported. The idea was to wear whatever you want and support the show presented by AIDS Healthcare Foundation, where everyone was urged to text in donations.

“There needs to be more attention on finding cures and there’s a lot of talk but you need things like this to get action” Greenwich, Conn., resident Sheri Branson said.

“We’re doing something for a good cause,” Nofar said.

Art and heart came together giving this year’s Fashion Week a feisty farewell.
