Many markets are embracing the advantages of going global, and the fashion industry is no different. Today's freshest designs are coming from international designers, who are filling a void in the fashion industry: high style at affordable prices. On Tuesday, October 16, 2007, buyers will have the chance to preview some of the industry's leading international Korean designers as their fashion collections make their New York debut at the 'Fashion Market Day', from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., in Manhattan's exclusive 3 West Club Penthouse (3 West 51st St.).

As Andre Kim, South Korea's most famous and powerful fashion designer states in the New York Times full-page article on Korean fashion (9/15/2007) "Fashion should portray grace, intellectual and artistic beauty, youthful energy…not too classic". In that vein, MZI Global Marketing is organizing a unique fashion event in New York City - 'Fashion Market Day' - featuring top upcoming and established Korean fashion brands, after their West Coast introduction. As South Korea has opened up since the 1980s and Western clothing has been made popular, talented Korean fashion designers are ready to "strut their stuff" in this one-day buyers' market event.

During this one-day event, established Korean fashion designers and manufacturers will introduce their collections, which combine European designer inspiration with the vibrancy of a vanguard edge. Presenting clothing of various categories and price ranges, 'Fashion Market Day' will be a unique opportunity for apparel and accessory buyers to view an exciting, eclectic merchandise mix, including day, evening and professional styles for men and women.

"Many of the top international fashion labels these days outsource their manufacturing, often sacrificing quality," said Milena Kovachevich, New York fashion consultant. "The Fashion Market Day's high-end designers have the unique distinction of creating their products in Korea, which is known for high-quality manufacturing as well as competitive pricing. These brands offer the ideal combination of cutting-edge fashion trends and consumer-friendly pricing that American retailers desire."

Tuesday's 'Fashion Market Day' presents a diverse cross section of international fashion leaders, making this a one-stop shop for any buyer seeking innovative trends for today's demanding markets. The event will showcase seven ready-to-wear labels: 'Brand', 'British Knights Korea', 'An Yoon Jung Ans', 'Color Field', 'Mee You International', 'Over Rolls', and 'Irreh Leather.' Each of the exhibitors focuses on creating a diverse selection of trendy and inspiring fashions to provide customers with innovative product launches all year round.

Brand highlights:

  • The 'Brand' collection features fibers that are very easy to maintain for a fast-paced lifestyle and beautiful romantic vintage style with easy-to-wear fashions that fit the urban lifestyle of youthful Americans. Incorporating handmade details such as three-dimensional floral motifs, bows and faux pearls, each item from the collection enables customers to express their individuality and creativity for any age group.
  • 'British Knights Korea' is a premium priced-casual wear line with good quality materials and trendy designs. This famous brand offers trendy "cool" youth oriented fashions, easily adapted for today's diverse eccentric generation Y styling.

It is reentering the US market based on its smashing success in the youth market in Korea. (http://www.britishknights.co.kr).
