(New York, NY) January 28, 2009 – On February 19, 2009 Nolcha at The Plaza presented by Solerra, a subset of Nolcha Fashion Week, will debut the Fall 2009 collections of seven select fashion designers in apparel and accessories in Nolcha’s continued effort to support emerging and independent fashion designers. On this day, editors, retailers, stylists, agents, industry executives, and celebrities will gather at the Peter Lik Gallery in New York City’s famed Plaza Hotel on Fifth Avenue for a full day of presentations and networking, which will include:


From 12pm - 6pm: a private viewing for buyers and press, followed by from 6pm – 9pm: an exclusive evening viewing complete with hors d’ouevres and a bar by Saaga Vodka. To top off the night, from 10pm – 3am: the presenting designers accompanied by 300 trendsetting guests will celebrate at a New York City hotspot.


Exhibiting designers include:


The Barbara Sears Nelson collection was inspired 20 years ago while the designer was living in Aspen, Colorado, land of sparkle! Intrigued by fiber optics and high fashion, Barbara began designing accessories that quenched her thirst for shine! The Barbara Sears Nelson collection is designed using the finest Italian elements: fabric woven with fiber optics – bags that illuminate, leather and hardware, as well as the best in craftsmanship. (www.BarbaraSearsNelson.com)


Betty Lou Jewels’ first-ever handcrafted pendant collection, BLISS, says, “I’m happy to be me.” The bold, modern pieces found in the BLISS collection cleverly come in two styles: the undulating lines of Wavy and the clean linear lines of Calm; four shapes: the loving Heart, the lucky Clover, the Circle of life and the symbol of birth, the Oval; and in five colors: Luna Silver, Belize Blue, Sunset Orange, Flora Green and Provence Purple. Each pendant is made up of brilliant cut diamonds set in vibrantly colored enamel, and women can choose the unique style, shape and color that express their happiness. (www.bettyloujewels.com)


emeDesigns, under the label of emeD, is Erica Mae and Shelli’s award winning couture fashion collection for real life and stage. The Little Black Dress has become their calling card by client response, but their true passion is creating a customized look for the client standing in front of them, with the belief that “women should feel as beautiful in their clothes as they look.” The external design is only one piece to the puzzle. The time spent on the lining is the true stamp of an emeDesign creation. The emeD Studio is located in Davenport, Iowa in the Bucktown Center for the Arts. Erica is a 2003 graduate of the Illinois Institute of Art in Chicago.     


For Fall 2009 Eenamaria brings us the Chelsea Boi Collection. This Mondrian inspired line begged the name Chelsea as a nod to the neighborhood's colorful and vibrant scene. For decades, Manhattan’s literati and contemporary art movers have made Chelsea their home. Boi is a reference to the 1960's Page Boy haircut, made famous by British 'it' girl and international supermodel, Twiggy. Crafted from patent vinyl, the bags range in functionality from the weekend carry-all, to the keys-and-purse-only clutch. With Eenamaria, a woman can outfit her entire wardrobe around one fabulous bag, and she will do so with a distinctively modern charm. (www.eenamaria.com)


Influenced by cultural trends, technological innovations, and shifts in social consciousness, the Nadia Nour collection reflects the tides of change. Created for women who defy trends, expressing themselves through their distinctive sense of style, Nadia Nour apparel is designed to inspire a sense of self-assurance and vitality in the women who wear it. Driven by Nadia’s sophisticated, playful, and bold vision, the collection achieves a timeless aesthetic through its integration of classic with experimental elements. Produced exclusively in the Manhattan garment district, Nadia Nour apparel features a flattering fit, flawlessly constructed using vibrantly dyed organic silks and cottons. (www.nadianour.com)


In November 2008, womenswear designer Vaughn Jereaux won the Race to Be Creative Entrepreneurial Challenge hosted by Russell Simmons. Jereuax was selected from hundreds of contestants from more than 22 states and the United Kingdom. Vaughn has since partnered with Donatemydress.org and the Daily News, to outfit New York City high school seniors of underprivileged means with donated prom dresses.  Of his recent successes, Vaughn says: “I completed the Race to Be competition with a greater appreciation for the fashion industry and a superior understanding of the fundamentals of what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur. Winning the competition was gratifying as it validated my talent and business sensibilities. It’s a profound honor to have won the opportunity to showcase my collection in Nolcha’s Fashion Week Designer Exhibition. To be recognized, respected and given exposure as an emerging designer is the highlight of my career thus far. I will be forever grateful and appreciative of this incredible opportunity.” (www.vjcollection.com)


Nolcha Fashion Week exists as a platform to support young entrepreneurial talent in fashion design, but Nolcha would not be successful in their efforts to help designers without their gracious sponsors. This year’s sponsors include Solerra (www.solerra.com), Stylecaster (www.stylecaster.com), Peter Lik Gallery (www.peterlik.com), Saaga Vodka, Luprock.com, and The Plaza Beauty by Warren Tricomi. All Nolcha at The Plaza guests will leave with gift bags sponsored by SARAR, an upscale European Men Suits and Women’s Wear retailer.



Enhancing the careers of emerging fashion industry talent, Nolcha is a unique multifaceted platform. It enables aspiring and talented designers to debut their collections, gain and share industry insight, and realize their entrepreneurial goals and dreams. This platform synthesizes live events, regional fashion weeks, and a myriad of cross promotional mediums that spearhead our emerging designers directly into professional channels. www.nolchafashionweek.com  www.nolcha.com
