General Information

Runway the Real Way: Fashion Diversity on the Inclusive Catwalk” is a Catherine Schuller Production brought to you by Catherine Schuller and her event production company, Catherine Schuller Enterprises, LLC, in coordination with Joshua Frischer. “Runway the Real Way” is a fashion show that includes everyone, regardless of height, weight, body type, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, nationality, or persuasion because we believe that beauty comes in all shapes, shades, sizes and colors, and everyone should show off that beauty on the runway. We strive to feature designers and models in the LGBTQ community, especially transgender and transsexual models. We also strive to feature designers and models that specialize in fashion for plus-size women and men.  Created in 2012 by Catherine Schuller, we have held over 75 "Runway the Real Way" Fashion Shows in New York City in the past 5 years.  The show provides a vehicle for cultivating amateur models and new talent, serving as a introduction to the world of fashion.  We have also forged partnerships with beauty schools in New York to provide beauty school students with learning experiences and networking opportunities.
