Korto Momolu & Dillard's to bring fresh approach to style

Feb '10
The Korto Momolu Brand and Dillard's, Inc. announced the launch of a new line of signature handbags and accessories designed by Korto Momolu that will be available in select Dillard's stores and online beginning mid-February, 2010.

"We are very excited to bring Korto Momolu's collection of jewelry and handbags to Dillard's," said Dillard's Vice President of Merchandising Bill Dillard, III. "It is thrilling to watch a new designer begin her career in such an exciting fashion. Dillard's is truly committed to innovative design and to bringing our customers new and exciting labels. This collection fits perfectly with our fresh approach to style."

To further strengthen this partnership, Ms. Momolu will embark on a nationwide tour from February to March 2010. The tour will launch in Ms. Momolu's home state in Little Rock, Arkansas, and will include personal appearances in Dillard's stores in the major cities of Dallas, Houston, Memphis, Atlanta, Tampa, Orlando, Jacksonville, New Orleans, Charlotte, Las Vegas and Phoenix.

"This partnership with a worldwide brand like Dillard's is thrilling for me because it will enable me to expose even more people to my aesthetic and continue to make my brand a household name," said Korto Momolu. Dubbed as 'the one to watch' during her appearances on "Project Runway" season five, she is living proof that if one follows her dreams and is true to her craft good things are likely to happen.

Coinciding with the date of her Dillard's launch, Korto Momolu will return to the runways of New York City on February 15th at the Union Square Ballroom to present her latest collection of apparel, handcrafted handbags and accessories. This will mark her first showcase since she competed as a reality TV contestant. Her collection will include a sneak peek at the exclusive handbag and jewelry signature line designs for Dillard's stores and Dillard's online.

The road traveled has not always been easy for this talented designer. After being kept away from her homeland of Liberia, West Africa, for almost 20 years because of a civil war, Ms. Momolu and her family settled in Canada where she pursued her passion and studied fashion design at the L'Academies des Couturiers Design Institute in Ottawa, Ontario.

Korto Momolu has been featured by "EOnline", "Essence", "TV Guide", "LA Times", "Arkansas Democrat Gazette", "Ladybrille", "Global Woman" magazine, "InStyle" and "Jamati Online". She has had editorials in "Southwest Airlines Spirit", "Kouture", "Iconography", and "Munaluchi Bridal" magazines as well as appearances on the cover of "Celebrate", "African Vibes", "Celebrity Parents" and "Little Rock Family" magazines. Her TV and radio appearances include "The Wendy Williams Show", BET's "My Black is Beautiful" and the "Tom Joyner Morning Show".
