Couture Fashion Week New York: A Preview

Since 2003, Couture Fashion Week has presented a series of couture and luxury fashion shows a few times each year in New York City, Palm Beach, and other cities.I happened to learn about it last February, when I got an invitation to attend it all three days.

 I didn't know what to expect, but it turned out be a quite interesting mix of cultures. The thing is that Couture Fashion Week always happens right the next day after the last show of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and it showcases chosen designers from around the world, who are not as known in USA, as they are in their own countries. This said - I must add - those designers are rather talented. I've watched the last shows and was quite impressed. [See the photos from the last year's Couture Fashion Show New York here.]


This year there were designers from Beirut, Lebanon, Russia, Turkey, Romania, Dubai, India, Brazil, Peru, Morocco, Netherlands, china, Germany and U.K. presented.
