NEW YORK — Chalk one up for the kids. Putting on a fashion show just got a little easier. Brothers Mauricio and Roger Padilha, 33 and 30, respectively, owners of MAO Public Relations, are unveiling a new show venue for Fashion Week called MAO Space. Pitched as the young designer’s alternative to Bryant Park, MS offers a treasure trove of advantages to Seventh Avenue’s fledgling talents: a cheaper space with loads of amenities just down the street from the tents.

To offset their costs, the Padilhas have signed up several sponsors, including Ian Schrager Hotels, Red Bull, Physique Hair, Creative Nails and MAC Cosmetics. The latter two are also offering use of their manicure and makeup teams free of charge.
