Korto Momolu Collaborates With ZAAF to Unveil her Fall/Winter 2014 Collection at New York Fashion Week

New York, NY (PRWEB) January 31, 2014

New York City, the world’s metropolis of signature style, assembles bi-annually the most present and influential designers across the globe to introduce their latest collections at exclusive invite fashion shows. Fashion Designer extraordinaire Korto Momolu, included in these elite ranks, already has fashion industry insiders anxiously awaiting the seasonal blowout from this immense talent.

On Friday, February 7, 2014, the Liberian native and Project Runway All-star will introduce her collection, “Urban Coup”, to the fashion world at Helen Mills (137 West 26th Street). Sophisticated and military-inspired, “Urban Coup” pays tribute to the increasing strength and precision of women’s wear in the fashion industry. And taking it a step further, Korto Momolu has curbed the traditional approach to military chic to present a parade of fresh cuts and silhouettes to compliment the modern woman’s lifestyle.

To further advance the designer’s vision, ZAAF™, a collection of handcrafted luxury leather handbags and accessories produced by artisans in Ethiopia, will be featured with Korto Momolu’s “Urban Coup”, along with selected footwear pieces from White Mountain Shoes. “It’s important to align our brand (Korto Momolu) with companies that care about society, the environment and have a global mindset, because it matters to us personally and professionally,” states Leonard DeShield, Jr., Brand Manager.
