Pierre and Hadi Katra announce their first appearance in the United States and New York (NY) Fashion Week this February 3rd-4th at Grand Hyatt. After long negotiations with International Fashion Shows Headquarters in Switzerland, the Katras have agreed to present an exclusive collection for the organization's special fundraiser gala.
"We have personally met with Sianetta Sunnasee of International Fashion Shows, and we find her intent to be sincere and true," says Pierre Katra. "Our group is designing an exclusive collection, specifically for the New York Fashion Week event.”
“We are also designing a special dress that Ms. Sunnasee will be auctioning to benefit help benefit charity, Jessica Marie Lunsford Foundation." Jessica Lunsford was abducted from her home in Homosassa, Florida while she slept. Little Jessica was then brutally assaulted and buried alive by an 'Absconder Sex Offender'.
"We have taken Mr. Lunsford's mission to heart; if this dress can help save a child's life and/or help create tougher laws, it becomes priceless," says Katra. He continued to urge "[.] all people worldwide to address this issue; it does not stop simply at American borders."
"The Katra's are not only world-class designers, they are world-class people," says Ms. Sunnasee of International Fashion Shows. "They have never presented at New York Fashion Week because they normally concentratetheir work in other regions of the world.”
