KC You There is excited to be involved with Mercedes-Benz of Buffalo Fashion Week for the second year! Here’s an intro to the up and coming designers that will be showing their S/S 2013 collections at Mercedes-Benz of Buffalo Fashion Week.
Dowry Designs was founded in 2009, specializing in custom design for private clientele. The brand has since expanded to ready-to-wear, debuting its first Spring/Summer 2011 collection in luxury boutiques across the US. Designer Christy Holzer hopes to create a wardrobe designed for a woman who wants to be both a “CEO and a trendsetter.”
Elena V Designs
Elena Vasilevsky designs around the modern individual who is constantly moving from social activities to business and beyond. She makes it easy to transition your daytime look directly to your life after the office. Elena V Designs features three collections: Active Wear, Ready-To-Wear, and Couture. Each collection resonates with attention to fit and detail, artistic design, and luxurious style and quality.
Gwen Beloti Collection
Gwen Beloti Collection is built on the theory that today’s woman aspires to be classic but trendy, edgy yet tasteful, and distinctive while still collective. Gwen, an emerging women’s wear fashion designer born and based in NY, has produced a line that features a selection of boldly, subtle, innovative statements for its consumers and the fashionable elite.
Prajje Jean-Baptiste, creator of Prajje 1983, has become one of Boston’s most promising young designers. He was born in Haiti and he attended Massachusetts College of Art and Design and graduated in 2009 with a degree in Fashion Design. Now residing in New York City, his designs are becoming known as the work of a “hip young designer with exquisite craftsmanship.” Although Prajje’s gowns are unique and instantly recognizable, any woman who wears one will be comfortable and feel her own individuality come out.
