CANADIAN FASHION DESIGNER CORINNE MONIQUE LONG CLOSES ROGUES GALLERY PRESENTS EMERGING DESIGNER’S SHOWCASE, FEB 10th IN NEW YORK CITY DURING NEW YORK FASHION WEEK WITH HER FALL/WINTER 2013 COLLECTION, “THE YEAR OF THE SERPENT.”
On Sunday night, Corinne debuted her eponymous fashion label Corinne Monique, an innovative, yet timeless, luxurious line designing and producing wearable works of art for the confident, successful, 21st century woman. With a BSc in Human Ecology, Major-Textiles/ Clothing, Minor-Design/Product Development, as well as intensive study in haute couture techniques at the Paris American Academy in Paris, France, Corinne’s designs have gained her recognition as a finalist in the Télio Design Competition during Montreal Fashion Week 2009 and Toronto’s Nuit Blanche Art of Fashion 2010.
The Corinne Monique Fall/Winter 2013 exotic collection ‘The Year of the Serpent,’ debuted on Chinese New Year and as the finale to the evening’s showcase, examined the symbolism of the poisonous serpent, a powerful mythological creature familiar to all cultures. Conjuring up exotic folkloric images, employing opulent finishes and sensual textures such as brocades, silks, wools, velvet, and lace in seductive colors of crimson, persimmon, ruby, fuchsia, ultramarine, midnight, cobalt, emerald, malachite, and onyx, each gilded piece combined the techniques of haute couture methods with ready-to-wear ease.
