Yansi Fugel’s designs have graced the pages of the world’s most famous fashion magazines, including ELLE. Harper’s BAZAAR, InStyle, Vogue, and W. She is a favorite designer to many socialites, politicians, business women and celebrities alike, with one of her gowns having been seen on the red carpet at the 2002 Academy Awards.
Yansi’s Ready To Wear collections are sold throughout the USA, Canada and Europe in over 400 specialty boutiques, including the YANSI FUGEL flagship store in Ridgewood, NJ.
She creates clothing for real women like herself who oversee their business, family and are involved in their community. A long-time supporter of the Arts, Yansi’s unique design process transforms fine materials with artisan techniques into hand painted knits, laser cut and print designs.
Now she is bringing her innovative design approach to The Burgdorff Cultural Center for the Performing Arts with a Stock/ Sample Sale to Benefit The Theater Project/What Exit? Theater on March 1st between 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. and March 2nd. between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.
Yansi was first introduced to the theater through friend and colleague Rick Delaney, a professional actor and Maplewood, New Jersey resident, whose last appearance with The Theater Project, THE FURTHER ADVENTURES OF HEDDA GABLER in the Fall of 2012, had Examiner.com/ New Jersey Footlights proclaiming him “One of the finest actors on anyone’s stage.”
Yansi’s support for the theater has continued since then. When Rick was performing in the Annual Holiday production of IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE: THE RADIO PLAY, one year, as a special treat, Yansi bought out half the house and transported the entire staff of her NYC Design Studio and their families to The Burgdorff.
This special Sales event, which Yansi has christened “Art Meets Life”, will feature items on sale up to 80% off, with profits being donated to support The Theater Project’s mission of bringing thought-provoking Professional Theater to Maplewood.
