New York’s Couture Fashion Week: Style Has a Name
The secret is out. Couture Fashion Week New York is a gem of an event presenting the latest collections of exceptional couture and luxury designers from around the globe, stunning accessories, as well as performances by world-class entertainers and displays of fine art, luxury products and services. The latest edition of the prestigious event was held over three days in September 2010 in the iconic Grand Ballroom and elegant adjoining salons at New York’s world-famous Waldorf-Astoria hotel.
New to Couture Fashion Week this season were designers Ezra Santos (Dubai/Philippines), Jack Guisso (Lebanon), Marco Marcu (Germany), Mireille Dagher (Lebanon), Sisa Designs by Simone Rodrigues (Brazil/USA), Siraj Sanad (Saudi Arabia), Elizabeth Arnau (Spain), and Luis Machicao (Peru/USA). Returning designers were Amal Sarieddine (Lebanon), Romanitza (Romania), Sushma Patel (India/USA), Katya Leonovich (Italy/USA), Paulina Lopez (Mexico), Cristina Nitopi (Australia), Zizi Cardow (Nigeria), Han Couture design competition winners (China), Catalin Botezatu (Romania), Nedret Taciroglu (Turkey), Lilycomes by Jeone Mi Young and Hee Deuk Yang (South Korea), Edwing D'Angelo (USA), and Andres Aquino (USA) who is also the event producer. See photos from the September 2010 fashion shows.
Each collection is as unique as its designer and styles range from avant-garde to classic. Many of the ensembles shown at CFW are typical of those seen at the Oscars, Emmys and other red carpet events in Hollywood, New York, Palm Beach, Monte Carlo and Cannes. Many are well within the reach of the well-heeled fashion maven, others are more suited for a princess. Several past participating designers have sold gowns for over $1 million to private clients.
Prominent sponsors this season included MD Minerals by Dr. Janine Hopkins, Official Makeup Sponsor, and Dr. Stephen Greenberg, Official Cosmetic Surgery Sponsor. Charity partners were the Greater NYC Affiliate of Susan G. Komen For the Cure® supporting breast cancer research and awareness, and Tuesday’s Children supporting victims of terrorism worldwide.
Couture Fashion Week, launched in 2005, is held twice a year in New York City. It continues to grow steadily each season attracting participants and visitors from around the world to the Big Apple. It is the only major event held in New York City that is exclusively dedicated to couture and luxury fashion offering a delightful spectacle of high fashion, theatrics and high-profile guests to over 5,000 attendees over three days and a post-event audience worldwide in the hundreds of millions.
The next Couture Fashion Week event will be held Friday February 19 through Sunday February 20, 2011 at the Waldorf-Astoria. For tickets and more information visit: www.CoutureFashionWeek.com
