Most people assume that Fashion Week means shows in the Bryant Park tents, but some of the most colorful and innovative designs are being shown throughout the week in other locations. Couture Fashion Week always showcases these types of designers. The dress is elegant, the crowd, eager to see what’s on the runway(s), and there is always a display of luxury goods in the venue, such as this amazing, hand-beaded handbag by D. Rothbury (designer, Dee Rothbury).
On Friday, September 5th, at the Westin Times Square’s Majestic Ballroom, The Advice Sisters were fortunate to see three different shows by International designers that have unique visions.
There was live music before each show. Pianist Donna Weng has performed as soloist with the Atlanta Symphony, Shanghai Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra, and the New Jersey Symphony to mention a few. She is also on the faculty of the Mannes College of Music Preparatory Division.
Violinist Jane Hunt, also known as the “Violin Venus”made her debut at Carnegie Hall in 2007, and has appeared in such venues as Radio City Music Hall, The Kennedy Center, The Cannes Film Festival and Sir Elton John’s Lifeball Concert. She is also appearing this summer at the 2008 U.S. Open Tennis tournament.
Fashion shows by other designers will run throughout the week. Couture Fashion Week is a series of couture and luxury fashion shows held multiple times each year in New York City, Palm Beach, and other selected cities, featuring international designers, entertainers, art and luxury product and service exhibits.
