designer Cristina Nitopi will return to
Couture Fashion Week to present her latest
luxury menswear collection. The fashion show
will be held on Sunday 15 February 2009 at
8:30 p.m. at the world-famous
Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York City.
Ms. Nitopi realized a childhood dream of
having a fashion show in New York with her
first appearance at Couture Fashion Week
2007 to positive reviews. Her latest fashion
show in New York in September 2008 included
both men's and women's designs, and her
upcoming fashion show in February 2009 will
feature menswear exclusively.
With her latest collection, Ms. Nitopi is
tackling a new challenge outside the
"comfort zone" of designing womenswear and
seeks to introduce a modern innovative edge
to menswear through the use of very soft
fabrics and unexpected textures.
As she continues to take on new
challenges, Cristina Nitopi recently
announced the upcoming opening of her first
boutique in March 2009 in the Sydney suburb
of Leichardt, at The Italian Forum.
