Minika Ko to Premier KOVASKY Collection at the New York Fashion Week

New York, NY, September 09, 2016 --( High-profile, Taiwanese American designer, Minika Ko, will debut her first women’s ready-to-wear collection entitled KOVASKY during New York Fashion Week. The runway show will take place at 4:00pm on September 10 at 601 Madison Ave, NY, NY 10022. The collection comprises elegant evening wear, exquisite suits, luxury athleisure pieces, encompassing the diverse fashion needs of the urban women and highlighting confident femininity.

KOVASKY was inspired by the designer’s first viewing of a 007 movie when she was a child. Bond’s sleek style, high confidence, and adventurous spirit left a deep impression. Given Minika’s experiences in working and living in various countries, she came to believe that many of today's women are just as stylish, poised, and courageous as James Bond. However, she found that there are only a few brands that offer both high quality and high performance, and she therefore created KOVASKY, a collection that is both aesthetic and functional.

In order to break through the limitations of traditional designs, Minika co-developed high performance fabrics with one of the world's leading high tech fabric manufacturer, which was based in her homeland, Taiwan. These fabrics are skillfully enhanced by Minika’s couture tailoring and meticulous engineering, resulting in pieces that are light, wrinkle resistant, wind/water resistant, breathable, and flattering to the feminine physique.

In addition to her fashion show Minika Ko was also invited to join Jason Wu, Michael Kors and other well-known designers on September 8th, the opening day of New York Fashion Week, to participate as one of the judges in the School of Visual Art’s annual event, Language of Fashion.
