Couture Fashion Week NY Fall 2011 : Andres Aquino Written by CaribbeanPOSH

Designer Andres Aquino is the founder and producer of Couture Fashion Week NY held in the iconic Grand Ballroom of the Waldorf Astoria. Couture Fashion Week has been presenting couture and luxury fashion shows in NY since 2003.  The designers that show at Couture Fashion Week truly represent a diverse group. This season designers represented such countries as Nigeria, the Dominican Republic, Germany, Russia, Kuwait, Lebanon, India, USA, and Romania. Couture also partnered with The American Diabetes Association to raise awareness about the disease by hosting a silent auction. Aquino dedicated his show on February 19, to his mother who is affected by the disease.  Elegant and luxurious are the words that first come to mind when viewing his collection. Brilliantly colored gowns accented with bold purples and gold, a complete collection to go from an elegant social event to a chic after party.
