The FOCUS | Apparel and Accessories Show will begin its 3rd year on the Penthouse of the CMC in January 2010.

January 2010 will feature two rising star collections amongst many other great lines. Althea Harper was a contestant on famed TV program, Project Runway's sixth season. Her line has a unique design aesthetic that combines tailoring, draping and shape to create garments that are both functional and beautiful. Althea Harper will be exhibited along with other lines from the Altitude Fashion Showroom including, Amber Pollard Handbags, Bees Company, India Rose Collection, John S. Brana Jewelry Collection, and Heike Jarick Blue Label Collection.
Also new to FOCUS is already buzzed about line, Rissa (www.lovelyrissa.com) designed by Marissa Erskine. Rissa will be exhibiting the Spring 2010 collection.
