Couture Fashion NY Week SS15

This is the time for fashion designers to present and showcase their artistic statement in front of buyers and the press about upcoming trends and style. It is a week-long affair of runway shows, galas and exhibits throughout NYC. This was my second chance to be front row and center at Couture Fashion Week and I attended the Crowne Plaza Times Square Manhattan showing last night with designers from USA, Russia, Lebanon and Vietnam. Representing the U.S. was designer, Evelyn Suzette Johnson, whose “retro” silhouettes and 60’s styles were the inspiration. Russia’s Narine Tovmasyan presented her “Live for the Beauty” collection inspired by the Renaissance and blended to modern age. Martha Fadel, presented her Middle East ensemble of sequin, sheer and metallic fabrics. The final designer, Vo Viet Chung, presented his collection “Cochinchina’s Beauty” made of the traditional Vietnamese silk fabric called “Lanh My A”. He won the prestigious United Nations “UNESCO” award for preserving the art of making this silk. I selected my favorite photos from the show to share with you. I hope you will enjoy them —

    I love the blog. I saw Narine’s collection on your site and I noticed you had some awesome pictures. I modeled for her in the purple and black gown. If you would, could you send me the pictures you have from her show? We’ve been looking and can’t seem to find them online yet and I know she’d love to see how they look! She was incredible to work with and I know it’d be greatly appreciated!

    Yours in Beauty,
