Catherine Fulmer & Avi Oster host Southern Crawl

Designer Catherine Fulmer and entrepreneur Avi Oster hosted Southern Crawl, an evening of fashion and music, featuring a presentation of Fulmer's Fall 2011 women's collection along with music by emerging Soul singer Marla Joy and a special appearance by renowned New York DJ Paul Sevigny.

Fulmer's Fall 2011 women's collection was inspired by her recent travels in the South and reconciles the edgy, minimalist sensibilities of stripped-down neo-South rocker chic with her elegant, downtown, every-woman aesthetic.

"From start to finish, this collection has had my heart, soul and love. I'm obsessed with the burnt orange, black corduroy velveteen, washed silks and the forest green -- these colors remind me of the vibe, warmth, and music of the South," commented Fulmer. "The all-black, sad look is something I'm totally over. I want to show beauty and grace, and that's why my linings represent bright energy, love and joy -- they all come from inside."

"I was glad to help Cat re-launch her line, especially after I saw it in action -- cutting-edge, yet remarkably elegant, all Catherine Fulmer. For a good year, she has thought about who she is as a designer -- raw, downtown, do-it-yourself, make-it-rock chic -- and last night, she really got her vision across," remarked Avi Oster, entrepreneur, real estate developer and philanthropist. "Having Sevigny and Marla Joy enter the mix helped amplify a great collection."

Avi Oster is an avid supporter of many fashion designers. He was Catherine Fulmer's earliest supporter, backing and financing her line when it launched in 2003. He most recently collaborated with Nolcha Fashion Week, one of New York's premiere platforms for top designers in the industry, and Stephen Seo, the modern bespoke brand specializing in stylish, custom-tailored clothing for men and women and the exclusive designer for the principal cast members of HBO's comedy-drama Entourage.

Southern Crawl was held at the Bowery Poetry Club, the quintessential New York City poetry performance space that is home to established and up-and-coming artists.

"I'm happy that Cat, Avi, and Marla got together to accentuate Cat's collection," said Damon DeGraff, whose management company, dGi, collaborated with Fulmer and Oster; their artist, Marla Joy, stripped BPC down to the grit. "The strength of Marla's soulful energy, emboldened by the spirit of Joplin -- it was an awesome night, and I'm proud of Cat because she rocked."
