Newcomers amongst the 12 womenswear, jewelry and handbag designers include: Eva Evanovich, Chabahll, Abreu Rios, Daniela Vlad, Ricki L Jewelry, Ailin and Rudy Wolff. Returning this season to showcase their Autumn/Winter 2011 collections include House of Tammam, Room to Roam, Alberto Parada Fine Jewelry and Ola.
The showroom setting will offer editors, buyers and stylists the option to browse the designers at their leisure or to book a Nolcha Style Tour, hosted by celebrity stylist, Jess Zaino, fashion expert for Style Network, TV Guide Network, VH1 and many more.
On the Style Tours, Zaino will provide direct introductions to each brand and pull various looks, demonstrating how to mix and match within the collections while discussing fabrics, price points, and whatâ€™s on trend.Â â€œThe Style Tour is like a one-stop shop for whatâ€™s hot on the independent fashion scene, highlighting whatâ€™s in theme with what youâ€™ll be seeing on the runway this season,â€ says Zaino.
In conjunction, The Beauty Oasis will be a relaxing haven away from the hectic New York Fashion Week schedule; allowing guests to freshen up their look with make-up and hair touch ups by the Paul Mitchell team plus complimentary manicures and lashes by Kiss.
Care for Kenya joins the roster as a cause that uses fashion to raise awareness and growth for women in Kenya.
In the evening, the space will open up to all in the fashion industry for networking and cocktails 7pm â€“ 8pm courtesy of Don Q Rums, Reyka Vodka and Riazul Tequila, in a venue that is just across from the Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week headquarters.Â Â
