(PRWEB) August 16, 2005
As New York Fashion Week gets underway in September, an exciting event will be an important part of the fashion scene. Couture Fashion Week®, produced by USA International Fashion Shows®, is a 3-day series of fashion shows to be held September 7 through 9, 2005 featuring fine designers from around the world. The event attracts press coverage, upscale fashion buyers as well as socialites and other affluent fashion consumers. The runway shows will be held at the elegant Westside Loft, 336 West 37th Street, in New York City.
For event founder and producer Andres Aquino, Couture Fashion Week is the logical extension of the trajectory that started in 2003 when he invited designer Clive Rundle from South Africa along with other excellent designers to be part of the realization of the dream of bringing couture to the highly demanding New York fashion market. The following season Mr. Aquino worked with famed Russian designer Helen Yarmak who showed $20 million in fur coats and jewelry at the season's most lavish fashion show in New York City. Other impressive productions have included a couture fashion show for the launch of the Maybach by Mercedes-Benz in Greenwich, Connecticut, fashion shows for a society crowd in Palm Beach and for New York City's elite Crystal Ball Society. The company also produces the highly successful "Champagne Fashion Brunch" on selected Sunday afternoons in New York, attracting an audience of upscale travelers and fashion lovers.
September's Couture Fashion Week will feature a tremendous array of exquisite collections. "Couture is fashion at its best," notes producer Andres Aquino. "It represents a fusion of fine art, skilled hand-tailoring and creativity. Working without mass production concerns, the fashion designer can make a true artistic statement."
