Our Black Tie Gala Fashion Shows, Wine Tasting and Charity Event occurred during 2023 FASHION WEEK were all stupendous successes. 

We had 3 fabulous Designers starting with 
Mayett Codoy
 from Norway, 
Beverly Olivacce
 originally from London,
 and Valda Rainey originally from Latvia.

  These 3 Designers put on super fabulous fashion shows, became the talk of the town, including in other parts of the world. Our guests looked great in their cocktail dresses and evening gowns and the men were dressed in their best Black-Tie attire and Business suits. Everyone looked so sharp and happy to be there, mingling with the beautiful ladies, and models and celebrities and members of the Press.

Sipping delicious wines that came from different parts of the world,
 and Vodka provided is handcrafted in the USA. 

This event was attended by the who's who of New York and of course, our Socialite of New York City including International Guests from Dubai: Shereen Sabhnam Dubai Editor in Chief, International Entrepreneur Robert Lester from Vienna, Austria and Dubai, Jenneffer Khan and her husband from Switzerland, and more countries were represented, and several Broadway Celebrities: Quinn Lemley who plays Rita Hayward on Broadway.
Our Sports Illustrated runner-up model: Britney Nichols as a Celebrity Guest also modeled in the fashion show wearing an Abaka Natural Fiber evening gown. 

Abaka fabrics clothes designed and made by Fashion Designer Mayett Codoy of Norway, who is originally from the Philippines used the Natural Fiber supplied by International Entrepreneur Celia Concepcion called Abaka, which is a plant that looks like a banana tree, but only smaller. They used the bulk for making ropes and baskets, then they discovered a way how to make this strong fiber into special fabric. A little bit expensive because the process is very pricey. But the fabrics are beautiful when they are finished and when made into cocktail dresses or evening gowns. The big design house in Milan used this special Fabric. The juice from the bark is medicinal, made into a soap because the enzyme from the juice of Abaka is anti-aging for your skin, and also cures eczema according to the scientist who made the formula. 

This event is Produced by Gloria Consolacion Tamayo Cressler President and Founder of Elite Professional Group and International Editor of Black-Tie International Magazine, and it was co-host by Black Tie International Magazine
and the Greater New York Chamber of Commerce. 

I want to thank our beautiful models who did such a great job in the 3 fashion shows. They worked very hard and even though it was a long fashion show they showed their professionalism throughout the whole evening. Our models were led by with Super Model Beauty Queen and Actress Angelina Shipilina, Daina Puscaso, Sylviana Buckley, Alex Andrezen, Josephine Webb, Gail Margaret King, Gaby Hass, Coline Khayati Witte, Nina Kelby, Yesmin Sinha, Arta Jansone,

Immunocologie Skincare...
 In 2006 founder: Karen Ballou, began to study the effects of using alkaline, ionized – or electrically charged – water from purified French green clay on the skin and noticed that the skin stayed hydrated three times longer. Two years later, while Ballou was undergoing chemotherapy treatment for Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, an ethnobotanist from France recommended that she also drink the same ionized clay water. After a few weeks of following his suggestion, Ballou observed that she did not feel or look as depleted as other cancer patients. After that, Immunocologie Skincare was born. That same ethnobotanist’s patented Vital Oligo Science (the science of minerals vital to the body and skin process) became the leitmotif of Immunocologie’ s skincare products. Immunocologie is the first beauty industry product that directly addresses the skin’s immunity and
balances the microbiome.

 By order of Emperor Charlemagne, the farmers of 9th century France planted apple orchards throughout what was soon to become Normandy. The Romilly farm was then founded and began a thousand-year tradition of producing artisanal ciders with the complexity of a fine Bordeaux, the elegance of champagne and the refreshment of a beer.  Relying on 25 varieties of heritage apples, ancient farming methods and fine French culinary techniques, the cidre you hold in your hands is a masterpiece of the cidermakers’ art.  This is true hand-crafted cidre without additives (not even water!) gently effervescent from wild Norman yeasts and skilled aging.  We are proud to bring it from the fog-shrouded cliffs of the Normandie coast to America.
