Cecilia Perez to Show Latest Collection of Artistically Inspired Creations at Couture Fashion Week

Accomplished fashion designer Cecilia Perez will present her latest collection at Couture Fashion Week in New York City. The fashion show will be held on Friday, September 5, 2008 in the Majestic Ballroom of the elegant Westin Times Square Hotel, in the heart of the Big Apple.

A native of Colombia now based in Miami, Ms. Perez has been creating unforgettable feminine fashions for over 24 years. Her driving passion is her love of art drawn from her experience and training in watercolor and oil painting as well as sculpture. Her artistic talents naturally progressed into sewing, knitting and fashion design. The gifted designer creates her couture fashions through draping over mannequins. Her decidedly contemporary designs are characterized by an exquisite attention to detail, impeccable construction and use of rich luxurious fabrics. She also designs one-of-a-kind bridal gowns. Her new pret-a-porter line, a new initiative under the Cecilia Perez brand, will have its international launch in New York with the inclusion of a number of designs in the September fashion event.

Cecilia Perez has participated in a number of international runway events including Miami Fashion Week and Martinique Fashion Week. She was recently recognized as a fashion industry leader by the Colombian-American Chamber of Commerce. Ms. Perez is a favorite designer of many Latin America celebrities and she presented actress Eva Longoria with a beautiful couture gown at the 2007 Alma Awards. Her charitable activities include an affiliation with Alfalit International, Inc., a faith-based organization, founded in 1961, that provides programs to the most needy of the world in literacy, education, health and community development. Ms. Perez's devotion to her family - especially her four grandchildren - inspires her life and creative spirit.

"A woman's unique personality and taste are the most important aspects to consider when designing for her," says Cecilia Perez. "I work to bring out a woman's best features to make her look splendid."
