|The event had its
successful debut in February 2003 in New York City before
an audience of international press and fashion buyers
with the participation of talented designers from Africa,
Latin America and the USA. Haute Couture, Alta Moda
or High Fashion -- whichever term you prefer -- has
always intrigued me," notes Andres Aquino, the show
founder and producer. "Haute couture is fashion at
its best, because it represents a fusion of fine art,
skilled hand tailoring and creativity making it a
statement of a fashion designer's artistic expression
through individual garments without the limitation of
mass production concerns.

Among the gifted fashion designers who will present their collections in September are Helen Yarmak, Mayssan Shuayb, Patricia Mills, Sueli Costa, Antonio da Silva and Lourdes Atencio Libman.
In its mission to present high fashion designers from around the world, this season the USA International Fashion Shows will include Helen Yarmak, a symbol of the emerging fashion force in Russia. Ms. Yarmak creates everything from exquisite jewelry to luxurious furniture as well as stunning fashions. Her designs are worn by many major Hollywood stars and she is admired by influential power brokers and world leaders from princes to presidents. With numerous awards to her credit and a PhD in mathematics, this fashion dynamo is rapidly becoming a force to be reckoned with in the industry. Ms. Yarmak has offices in Moscow and on New York's Fifth Avenue.
Couture designer Mayssan Shuayb, a native of Lebanon and now a resident of Florida, confesses: My dream has come true. I have my own fashion company and I will be in my first major fashion show, the USA International Fashion Show, in September of 2003." Ms. Shuayb will be presenting a highly anticipated line of superbly tailored gowns and dresses.
Cleveland, Ohio-based designer Patricia Mills derives inspiration for her beautiful gowns from the glamorous era of early Hollywood, from 1920 to1950, and such silver screen legends as Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn. Ms. Mills is an advocate of the work to find a cure for sarcoidosis, a devastating disease that affects her and some members of her family. Ms. Mills was recently profiled in the Euclid Sun Journal's feature "Facing a Challenge with Style. Designer refuses to let disease dampen her passion for fashion."
