This season's New York's Couture Fashion Week will include three notable Korean designers showing on the runway Sunday, February 14, 2010. The fashion show will be held at 5:00 p.m. in the legendary Grand Ballroom of the Waldorf-Astoria on Park Avenue, New York City.

“Asia has become a hotbed of New Century Couture,” says Mira Zivkovich, president of New York-based fashion consulting firm MZI Global. “These Asian designers are creating vibrant works of art with a nod to their cultural history, but most certainly in the present."

The Korea Couture Designer Collective includes:

ANS by Yoon-Jung An - Since 1975 designer Yoon Jung An has been a leading Korean fashion designer for women. Known for romantic elegant styles, Ms. An uses exquisite textiles to create suits and flirty cocktail dresses with feminine shapes and details like flouncy, flared skirts.

The new collection “Green Energy Cool Earth” represents Ms. An's dream of a better future that coexists with history and nature. Natural materials such as silk, linen and cotton flow in perfect harmony painted by marine-inspired hues of natural green, indigo blue and water white. “We expressed the designs that have the best paradigm through natural dyes and the use of environmental fabrics,” says Ms. An. ANS has shown at international fashion events including the Osaka Exhibition, Seoul Fashion Week and the Paris International Fashion Show. Ms. An is president of the Korean Women Entrepreneurs Association.

Lilycomes by Jeone Mi Young - In 2005 Jeone Mi Young launched her collection of natural silk, organza and cotton contemporary and evening dresses in splashes of vibrant colors. Her new collection features long, airy flowing dresses in exotic patterns with criss-cross halter and square tank tops. She makes a contrasting bold statement in black and white with fluffy meringue style gowns with confectionary details. Ruffles, feathers and a spectrum of necklines create an exquisite runway rainbow. The designs are not subtle, but unexpected and exciting like great art. Designer Mi Young is an innovator, applying the French technique of moulage. Her extensive educational background includes Esmod de Paris, Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaus, Ecole de la Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne, as well as an advanced program in fashion business for CEOs at Seoul National University. “Her unique combination of old-world elegance and Asian influence offers rare opportunity to find a custom crafted couture dress,” says Zivkovich.

Yang's by Hee Deuk– This second brand by Hee Deuk Yang is an expression of youth and freedom, mixing haute couture with Bohemian touches. The 2010-2011 collection features Burberry-inspired plaids in flowing skirts and trouser pants topped with sleeveless blouses accented by waterfalls of feminine ruffles. Contrasting the black, red and tan plaids, energetic, vibrant dresses and tops swirl in graphic floral patterns and gorgeous feminine shapes in sheer flowing fabrics.

Featherweight styles represent escapism. Fantasy palettes lead to sunshine-filled moods. Yang's designs are like the petals of an exotic flower – cascading to perfection. Hee Deuk Yang launched his career after winning top honors in a Korean design contest in 1990. He has designed multiple fashion lines, which have been featured in Hong Kong, Beijing and Seoul's fashion weeks as well as in Italian fashion magazines.
