Check out the video of our closing for the NYFW
The style hounds are well aware of the fact that Fashion Week is one of the most influential as well as the buzziest event of the fashion world. It showcases all the upcoming trends in the most stylized manner by collaborating with hundreds of world class designers and brands. In short, New York Fashion week is one of the four most noteworthy events of the fashion world. So, designers and brands are on the lookout for a spot in the fashion week events to leave a mark on the fashion fraternity.
So, we decided to go forward if we’d would want my brand to make a happening and noticeable entry in the fashion world and re-branded myself from 11 Degrees South (latitude of Indonesia) to Carissa Destinia, the name my mother gave me.
The theme we chose for NYFW was ‘Silky Kimono Robes' that can be adorned around the house, covered up while going to the beach and make you look uber sassy while moving around the town. The flattering silhouettes and vivacious prints made quite a statement at the fashion week. We had positive feedback and compliments during, on and after the show. Some of the feedback was “I’ve never seen anything like it”, “Where can I buy it”.
This experience only to confirm that our design is heading toward the right direction to make strong comeback with my fashion forward vision. I'm so blessed for this experience.
