A Date with Luxury in Palm Beach Fresh from the latest round of successful fashion shows in New York City, the producer of Couture Fashion Week will be introducing the event to the upscale Palm Beach, Florida market on Saturday, March 22, 2008. The luxury fashion show, reception and art showcase will be held at the elegant new Trump Tower development.

“The body is the space to work the architecture that is my clothing,” says Leonardo Chiasso whose architectural training is evident in his fashion designs. The Brazilian designer has created an entire couture collection based on intricate geometrical forms and female sensuality invigorated with a large variety of colors.
His dresses feature three-dimensional textures enhanced with the delicacy of handcrafted flowers, petals, fabric patches and other adornments. Gowns are composed of flowing yet structured fabrics wrapping the feminine silhouette.
Award-winning designer Diana Dorozkhina has shown her inspired creations in Russia, Belgium, France, Italy, Monaco and Palm Beach, as well as in her native Ukraine.
San Francisco-based designer Lily Samii, who has worked with such industry icons as Edith Head and James Galanos, introduces “Fresh”, the new youth-inspired couture collection. The collection features classic silhouettes given a daring, modern makeover. A multitude of unexpected seams and shapes excites the eye and flatters the body. This season’s collection is edgy and striking, form fitted and seducing, beautiful and elegant.
Water is the main inspiration for the “Dazzle” jewelry collections by Claudia Heimes. The fluidity and transparency of this natural source of life and beauty may be seen in most of the pieces. The collection includes rings and earrings made of 18 karat white gold and diamonds, rings made of 18 karat gold, pink sapphires and diamonds, and more.

In addition to the beautiful fashions and accessories to be shown on the runway, guests will enjoy a display of fine art. Among the artists scheduled are Anita Lewis and Trinny Ferrazzy. California native Anita Lewis was raised in Europe. Her
“Art for Modern Life” creates an unmistakable, somewhat European style of simplistic abstract modernism.

Her goal is to grace modern architectural environments, and that such surroundings will grace her art.
