Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 18, 2016
Tumbler and Tipsy by Michael Kuluva announced today that designer Michael Kuluva, after 6 years of privately battling Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), has teamed up with a leading patient advocacy organization, CreakyJoints, for the inspiration behind Tumbler and Tipsy’s Spring/Summer 2017 runway collection at Kia STYLE360 New York Fashion Week on September 13, 2016.
Designed with Meaning
Presented by CreakyJoints®, the world-wide online patient community for people with all forms of arthritis, the new collection, “Creaky and Tipsy” is directly influenced by the designer’s personal experience with the disease. The new collection will feature looks highlighting key arthritic focal points on the body, while staying true to the Tumbler and Tipsy brand with bold colors, funky embellishments and playful designs.
“For our new Spring/Summer 2017 Tumbler and Tipsy collection, I wanted to partner with an organization that was close to myself and my family’s heart. Since becoming a part of the CreakyJoints family, I have been inspired to learn more about my RA, and continue to lead an active and productive life despite the diagnosis. To highlight and celebrate this, we partnered with CreakyJoints for New York Fashion Week,” says Michael Kuluva, designer of Tumbler and Tipsy. “As someone who has been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), I wanted this collection to highlight my own personal experience, while also bringing awareness to such a debilitating disease and the goal of living successfully, despite it."
“Michael Kuluva exemplifies our organization’s mission to empower people living with arthritis, and to not set limits on their aspirations or goals, simply because they are also managing a chronic disease,” said Seth Ginsberg, President and Co-founder of CreakyJoints. “We’re thrilled to support the ‘Creaky and Tipsy” collection and Michael as his journey progresses. Plus, ‘looking good is feeling good’, and Creaky and Tipsy looks great!”
After taking the world by storm, one sequin at a time, Tumbler and Tipsy has set itself apart from other fashion brands by being the first to ever collaborate with the No. 1 dance video game, “Just Dance 4”, in creating exclusive looks for their runway show in 2012. With a celebrity fan base strutting previous Tumbler and Tipsy runway shows such as Kendall Jenner, Olympic Gold Medalist Alex Morgan, Perez Hilton, Johnny Weir, Jill Zarin, Rick Genest “Zombie Boy” and many other well known public figures, the launch of the new “Creaky and Tipsy” collection will sure to be one of the highlights of New York Fashion Week.
This Tumbler and Tipsy Spring/Summer 2017 New York Fashion Week runway show is proudly presented by CreakyJoints, La Pierre Nail Polish, Ellie Shoes, American Hat Company and Bloke NYC.
The Tumbler and Tipsy by Michael Kuluva runway show will take place at 7:30PM on September 13, 2016 at Kia STYLE360 “Met West” 639 W 46th Street New York, NY.
