[USPRwire, Tue Sep 01 2009] After a short hiatus Tiffany Koury has returned, inspired, and ready to take on this year’s New York Fashion Week. For her Spring 2010 collection Tiffany has created an all-encompassing experience that can transport anyone back to a time of myth and romance. The show is set for September 10 at noon, to be presented at an exciting new venue ‘The Gates’, 290 Eighth Avenue (near West 25th Street). The collection is inspired by the whimsical world of Alice in Wonderland. Tiffany’s unique artistry infuses her designs with a magical energy transforming each piece into an iconic masterpiece.
Tiffany’s bridal gowns, appearing in the collection for the first time this season, will allow brides to enter an enchanted world of their own fairytales. Tiffany, known for her attention to detail and high quality work, designs fashions that allow all women to feel beautiful, flirtatious and elegant.
Tiffany Koury is a seasoned fashion professional. She graduated in 1996 with a BFA in Fashion Design from the prestigious Fashion Institute of Technology and interned at Anne Klein with Richard Tyler and Patrick Robinson.
