PRESS RELEASE: Contemporary Jewelry Brand, Amber Poitier, To Debut During New York Fashion Week

Amber Poitier Official Invitation

BREATHE.PRAY.LOVE

New York, NY— Amber Poitier, high end contemporary jewelry brand, announced today that it will debut its premier collection during New York Fashion Week. The gallery style presentation entitled Breathe.Pray.Love, will take place on Tuesday, February 16th in Manhattan’s trendy NoMAD neighborhood.

Launched just last Fall by New York based designer Alicia Appleton, Amber Poitier draws its inspiration from nature and the city. The line features handcrafted pieces constructed of wood, metal, leather, and acrylic shaped in chic, modern yet edgy designs.

Breathe.Pray.Love, the line’s first collection—inspired by the memoir and film, Eat.Pray,Love—is a metaphor of the designer’s journey in the fashion world. Breathe being a representation of letting go of her twelve-year stint in corporate fashion (exhale) and embarking on a new path (inhale). Pray depicts Appleton’s search for direction, peace and happiness. Ultimately, Love is exemplified in the collection that showcases her renewed passion to create.

“Corporate fashion simultaneously educated and jaded me,” Alicia said recently. “The creation of the Amber Poitier brand and the new collection has rejuvenated my love for designing again. It has allowed me to step into my purpose.”

The invite only event which begins at 5:30 PM, will feature an art gallery style presentation where guests are invited to stroll through the displays of texture and color to experience and shop the collection.

NEW YORK, NY–  Luxury curvy brand, PLY APPAREL announced today that it will be showcasing its Fall/Winter 2016 Collection during New York Fashion Week. The runway show, entitled 2.12 The PLY Experience, featuring classic yet modern designs, will take place Friday, February 12th in the famed Johannes Vogt Gallery in Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood.

Launched in 2013, PLY Apparel has quickly become synonymous with creating high end ready-to-wear collections. Headed by creative couple Pamela and Lamarr Nanton, the boutique brand caters to the curvaceous woman, who seeks quality construction and impeccable fit in sizes 8-22 with extended sizes available.

In addition to empowering and inspiring curvy and full figured women, PLY has a secondary mission—it is in the fight against breast cancer. Recently, Pamela celebrated 10 years of being cancer free.  She has often stated that fashion helped her live through cancer and Nanton pays it forward by having the fashion line help others survive. Each season, the creative couple donates a portion of the proceeds from the collection to continue the fight.

The invite only event will begin with a VIP cocktail reception followed by the show. Guests will be treated to the musical stylings of Johnny King (hailing for the same talented family as renowned singer Evelyn “Champagne” King) followed by the designer’s trunk show at 7pm.
