Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 14, 2008
As the rains fell on the tents of Bryant Park during last week's Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, there was one show that was fashionably prepared thanks to the stylish umbrellas of the Los Angeles-based design company TRAY 6 (http://www.TRAY6.com). Inspired by "The Umbrellas of Cherbourg," designer Malan Breton's Fall 2008 collection was unveiled with models carrying umbrellas by TRAY 6 down the runway. Breton hand-picked the umbrellas to beautifully complement his designs. Breton came to fame as a contestant on Bravo TV's Project Runway, but is increasingly known for his elegantly tailored and feminine designs.
Since 2004, TRAY 6 has been focused on reinventing the umbrella as a true fashion accessory. With so much design energy being directed towards handbags, shoes, and jewelry, the long ignored umbrella seemed the perfect canvas for a fashion make-over. Initially launching with just 3 designs, the TRAY 6 collection now consists of over 40 varieties in both travel and full size, with new styles being introduced every season. Now available in over 150 boutiques throughout the country and at http://www.TRAY6.com , the company's unrelenting emphasis on quality and design has paid off. TRAY 6's debut on the runways of Bryant Park marks their success in elevating the status of the umbrella from rainy day necessity to high fashion accessory.
Never resting on their laurels, TRAY 6 continues to elevate the status of the umbrella with a new line of high-end umbrellas by internationally renowned calligrapher Bernard Maisner. These sophisticated umbrellas have leather handles and lush satin fabric -- the ultimate in fashion and function. Coming soon from TRAY 6: A new line of tote bags and wallets to complement their umbrellas' unique prints and colors.
