This year’s annual Indie Fashion Gala will be hosted at the historic Murray Hill New Church Mansion located at 114 E 35th St, New York, NY 10016.
Located at East 35th Street and Park Avenue in one of Manhattan’s most charming and picturesque sections, also known as Murray Hill, the Neo-Renaissance inspired building sits on a 77-foot wide lot, set back from the street, allowing for an elegant front garden perfect for our guest’s red carpet entrance.
The home for the New York Society, the historic mansion was built in 1859 by followers of Emanuel Swedenborg, the Swedish religious philosopher.
Rich with artistic culture and history, we look forward to honoring and celebrating a new generation of independent artists and entrepreneurs this upcoming November 13th 2021.

We at World Liberty TV, are very proud that we were nominated for the Best Indie Publication Award 2021, against many worthy magazines who showcase fashion articles in their publications. I was very shocked that World Liberty TV, Fashion Channel, Blogs and Photo gallery, won the Best Indie Publication Award 2021. Our Publisher, Dr. Abbey who accepted the award on behalf of World Liberty TV, team.
Made a very heartwarming speech, he went on to say, I lost my mother 7 weeks ago to Cancer and I am picking up this award in her honor, he went on to say his mother was his inspiration for starting the Fashion channel and motivated him in covering many events in the fashion sector. He finished off thanking Mr Preston Walker and his nomination committee for the Indie Fashion Calendar.
Mr Preston went on to say, this is an award Dr. Abbey richly deserves and worked very hard in the fashion sector showcasing many people and giving them positive publicity and exposure in their World Liberty TV, I also appreciate World Liberty TV, covering our Small Boutique Fashion Week shows throughout the years.
