BlacMéra to showcase at Couture Fashion Week

The latest collection by Yuliana Candra under her BlacMéra label will be shown at the upcoming Couture Fashion Week at 8:00 p.m. on Friday, February 17, 2012. The fashion show will be held in the legendary Grand Ballroom of the world-famous Waldorf Astoria in New York City. The fashion show will be preceded by the latest collection by designer LAURA WILLIAMS.

BlacMéra, the couture brand founded by Yuliana Candra, has a vision to bring the femininity and the romanticism of the old world to modern, strong, and powerful women.

To attain an effortless elegance with international appeal, the designer draws her inspiration from the om the heritage of world cultures and transforms the rich nuances into contemporary high fashion through detailed craftsmanship and the finest textiles.

Her understanding of grace and beauty from a seasoned exploration around the world is expressed meticulously through distinctive beading, hand embroidery, crystal work, and intricate embellishments. The lavish and alluring signature pieces are cut-to-the-curve to accentuate the feminine silhouette.

Ms. Candra's passion for world cultures has inspired her commitment to the research and revival of various dying arts and crafts and her collaborations with artisans from around the globe.

BlacMéra's collections are glamorous and sophisticated, yet unique and bold with historical opulence and a personalized character. “I am often asked what is my inspiration for the hand painted tunic dresses, says Ms. Candra.

“Photography is my long-time passion and I captured beauty from unusual places and objects, such as a rustic window in Morocco, an elephant face full of wrinkles in Rajashtan, a pile of colorful garbage in Zanzibar Island.

I gathered knowledge of unfortunate dying arts in various places. I have always wanted to do something about reviving them. Here I am, finally connecting everything I love: travel, photography, culture, arts, and making a difference.”

BlacMéra was featured at the recent 53rd Grammy Awards as well as at the Primetime Emmy and ESPN/ESPY Awards. At the 2011 Academy Awards celebrities including Anne Hathaway, Nicole Kidman, Annette Bening, Amy Adams, and Michelle Williams were among the nominees who received the designer's signature hand painted tunics.

Yuliana Candra is a favorite designer of Riza Santos, the recently crowned Miss World Canada 2011, who wore BlacMéra's evening gowns, cocktail dresses, and jewelry during the competition.
