It’s official, the hassle and buzzle of the fashion weeks in New York are finally over, wrapping up with the Couture Fashion Week New York, during which the international designers from around the world not yet known to the American public showcased their couture designs.
For the past decade the Founder and producer of Couture Fashion Week New York, Andres Aquino has been brining to New York designers from various countries who are not yet established in the American fashion industry. As a matter of fact – these designers are very well known in their home countries, and even some of the creme de la creme of USA know them, such as celebrities and influential individuals, but not yet have become the recognisable brands on the mainstream fashion scene, as the other big names.
Nethertheless, the three-day couture fashion runways draw many people to meet and greet the works of some of the most talented newcomers from Turkey, Russia, UK, Germany, Eastern Europe, India, Africa, Latin America, Canada, and Asia. This year alone, during the Couture Fashion Week New York Fall 2012 the countries represented at the shows were Peru, Romania, UK, Brazil, Turkey, Republic of Georgia, Columbia, and Spain, including some of our own commrades from New York, Washington DC, and Los Angeles.
“The remarkable journey continues. This unique event brings together first class couture and luxury fashion designers, amazing performers and trend-setting hair and makeup styling all in an incomparable world-famous venue. Our goal is to establish New York City as a true couture fashion capital.”
– Andres Aquino, Founder & Producer of Couture Fashion Week New York.
And he’s, actually, doing quite a great job for a person who has to deal with a massive pool of talented designers from around the world, but even then, Aquino does have a naturally good eye to spot the designers who stand out. Not a couture fashion week goes by without some very remarkable talents, whose names – suprising to a lot of the shows’ attendees – are not yet known in the fashion world.
Many of those designers return next seasons, as their previous works receive great applause from the local public. Of course, the Couture Fashion Week is not Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, but who wants to compare when these are two different ‘animals’. They have a different mission, draw different crowds and have a different mission, but with one same objective – to show the rest of us a true beauty of fashion.
