On April 25 2015, frittelli & LOCKWOOD participated in the 6th annual Electric City Couture Fashion Show: Makers Movement at the Universal Preservation Hall in Saratoga Springs NY. As a benefit for the ongoing restoration of Universal Preservation Hall, the event drew enthusiastic attendees from all over the region. Joining other capital area designers, frittelli & LOCKWOOD presented their newest collection of handwoven men's and women's wear and accessories.

In a new partnership, they collaborated with Christopher Mastroianni of Last Gentleman Co, Schenectady NY, who upcycles classic men's wingtips with colorful vibram soles and laces. Some of the shoes incorporate handwoven fabrics for a unique textured shoe that co-ordinated with the model's clothing.

 Along with frittelli & LOCKWOOD, participating designers included ekologic, Vilma Mare Baltic Style, Marika Charles, and Gamakache Black. Each design company outfitted 10-12 models with each designer's collection accompanied by specially-produced music and unique lighting. After the fashion show, designers displayed clothing from the runway in a "pop-up shop" so customers could try on and order pieces for themselves. It was a sold out show and a great success!
