Chic NYC announces that South Florida location will donate hundreds of handmade mask, along with turning its design studio into a Drop Off Station for goods and supplies


Miami, Florida – Chic NYC, a runway fashion company that has been featured at Fashion Week since 2015 has decided to turn its Miami Design Studio into a drop off station for shelf life food, goods, cleaning supplies and financial donations. The fastest growing fashion house has been the one New York City fashion brand to remain open during the quarantine, even hiring during the devastating time. “Now is the time to give back” says CEO Oz Avcioglu. “We have worked with federal and local authority to keep our New York operations open, but our South Florida team has picked up a majority of the work that our team in New York has not been able to accomplish. We feel that South Florida has became our home through the pandemic and we are looking forward to giving back to the tri-county area. We will be handmaking mask to drop off to hospitals, responders, grocery stores and other front line workers, along with turning our Miami Design Studio into a drop off station for the community to drop off canned goods, shelf life food, financial donations and cleaning supplies. From there, 100% of the donations will go to front line workers and families in need.” Says Oz.

For anyone who wishes to donate, all goods can be dropped off Monday – Thursday 9 AM – 5 PM at 20855 NE 16th Ave. Ste C19, Miami, Florida 33179.

In addition to accepting donations, CHIC NYC has also created a link on its website where anyone who needs assistance during the pandemic can apply for help. They are reviewing all applications on a first come first serve basis. Please visit www.chicnycrunway.com

Chic NYC is a fashion powerhouse that was featured at New York Fashion Week in 2015. Since then, the brand has became the fastest growing e-commerce and retail boutique, winning 8 awards. With offices and retail stores now worldwide, the CHIC NYC Runway Fashion Label calls Miami, Florida home to its design studio where it manufactures its very own organic cottons for its clothing and accessories.

BAG Will Release Easter Day, Recorded Live At CBGB In NYC On Friday April 10th


DREXEL HILL, PA: BAG, the zany, vaudevillian rock group from the 80’s, will release their demented holiday song, Easter Day, on Friday April 10, 2020. It’s a live recording from their 1990 performance at the legendary club, CBGB, in New York City.

Lead singer and performer Marc A. Gallo, along with members Patrick Callen on bass and Scott Grande on drums and percussion, tells the tale of the harrowing discovery as a child that the myth of the elusive Easter egg was just that, a myth.

Easter Day is perhaps one of BAG’s most iconic songs and performances. Gallo, wearing an elaborate Easter egg helmet, theatrically immerses himself in this satirical tale as if it happened yesterday. The dramatic yet sad scene of him confronting his Mother about this myth is particularly comical.

Gallo confides, “Look, as a young boy, abandoning the quest for the elusive Easter egg was quite devastating, especially when my Mother told me to stop. And as you can see, I’m still not over it.”

BAG, founded in Philadelphia, PA in 1985, incorporated costumes, props, video and satire into their live musical performances. They performed at popular venues like The Painted Bride and Chestnut Cabaret in Philadelphia, plus CBGB and Kenny’s Castaway in New York City. The Philly Inquirer featured BAG numerous times during the 1980s.

In 1989, BAG produced their EP titled “Happy Family”, published by Great Egg Music. It featured an eight-piece band including a horn section. It’s available at Bandcamp.

BAG can be heard on Spotify, Apple Music and other music streaming services. Easter Day (Live) was mastered in January 2020 and will be available for purchase on iTunes/Apple Music, effective Friday April 10, 2020.
