Couture Fashion Week: Sushma Patel / Kostas

Saturday, February 19, 2011

Now that New York Fashion Week is over, Couture Fashion Week started in New York (in addition to London Fashion Week - can't wait to see your posts to those that are attending!). Anyway, I was invited to the Sushma Patel and Kostas shows yesterday. I took my friend Freida, and we were seated front row - perfect view of the absolutely breathtaking pieces.

There was first a performance by opera singer Cristina Fontanelli. She also sang in between the two shows as well. It was different from the usual fashion shows I attend; usually it's just sit, watch & leave but the performances really made it a show.

Sushma sent down stunning pieces that truly "bridged the gap between the striking beauty of traditional Indian garments and the incredible innovation of Western design". She used bright, bold colors and the embellishments on the garments were just brilliant.Kostas, a designer from Greece, showcased beautiful furs. They definitely looked so warm and luxurious.Again, I posted a lot more photos and videos on my personal Facebook page - just add me if you'd like to view them :)

Also if you missed any of my New York Fashion Week posts - filled with personal photos I've taken at the shows, here's your chance to catch up!
