New York, NY, September 02, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The Romanian-born visual artist and fashion designer Alexandra Popescu -York will be presenting her Spring/Summer 2015 collection at the Couture Fashion Week in New York City, from September 5-7, 2014.
Popescu-York’s runway shows are unique and amplified by the visuals of her oversized hand-painted murals, highlighting her fashion collection. For her Spring/Summer 2015 Collection, Popescu-York used as inspiration the universal artwork found at the New York Metropolitan Museum, focusing on ten world-renown visual artists from ten different eras.
Alexandra Popescu-York’s pieces are artistic, imaginative, and visionary. “My inspiration for this collection was to recreate the feeling one experiences in such a beautiful museum while wearing my designs. As an artist, I incorporate my murals as the background of my fashion show so the audience can appreciate the designs in the context of the inspiration from which they came,” says designer Popescu-York. “From a young age growing up in Romania, it has been my dream to combine the art of painting with the art of fashion.”
Based in New York City, the artist made her first Big Apple debut in February 2014, presenting a collection of high-fashion couture and paintings alongside fashion designer/Producer Andres Aquino, during the 19th Season of Couture Fashion Week. Alexandra Popescu-York is the only participant at this year’s event who is both a fashion designer and visual artist, presenting a fashion collection and art exhibit in the same forum at Couture Fashion Week.
Ms. Popescu-York’s runaway fashion show is scheduled for September 7, 2014, while her collection paintings will be exhibited during the entire Couture Fashion Week event, from September 5-7, 2014.
