From The Producer Thank you for reading Couture and Luxury , a pictorial featuring the highlights of Couture Fashion Week. Couture Fashion Week began as an experiment and an adventure to show couture and finely crafted garments in New York City. Now in its 11th season it continues to flourish. The event has put New York on the map of the couture world. In September 2010 we are proud to present designers from six continents showcasing a diverse array of ensembles, accessories, and jewelry. Celebrities, VIPs, and fashionistas will be dazzled. In addition, we are supporting charity causes including Tuesday’s Children and the Greater NYC Affiliate of Susan G. Komen For the Cure®. We are grateful to members of the global press who continue to cover CFW. We give special thanks to the outstanding crew and volunteers whose hard work and enthusiasm contribute to a memorable experience for our valued audience. A big “Thank You” goes to our artists and performers, each of whom adds a unique and vibrant dimension to the event. Despite changes in the global economy, 2010 continues to be a fruitful year for fashion in general and couture in particular. Recently I had the privilege of participating in fashion shows in Dubai, the Dominican Republic, St. Croix and Romania, and was impressed with how these and other upscale events continue to grow. We look forward to bringing you many more seasons of exciting fashion.
