Concept Creation Couture Collection at Fishman's Fabrics

Premier Chicago couture designer, Elda De La Rosa, announces the introduction of her latest collection, the Concept Creation Couture Collection 2010, to be unveiled on Thursday, April 8, 2010 at Fishman's Fabrics, 1101 S. Des Plaines St. in downtown Chicago. The fashion show will begin at 7:00 p.m., immediately following a cocktail reception at 6:00 p.m.

“I think it's perfect that my Concept Creation Couture Collection will be unveiled at Fishman's, as this body of work is a wonderful example of the inspiring medium of gorgeous fabrics,” said De La Rosa. “I'm particularly excited about the show's finale piece, which to me epitomizes the process of 'Fabric to Couture' -- taking luxurious fabrics and harnessing the feeling they elicit as inspiration for the red carpet.”

De La Rosa considers herself more builder and architect than fashion designer. Inspired by her love affair with couture and glamour, she uses elegant, rich fabrics as the canvas on which to create the pieces in this show. The Concept Creation Couture collection illustrates De La Rosa's extensive range as an artist and features evening and wedding gowns, cocktail dresses, separates and suits made with the decadent fabrics and rapt attention to detail for which she has become known.

The show's finale will feature the gown selected for this year's Oscars Designer Challenge 2010, for which De La Rosa was chosen as one of only nine designer finalists in the country. The Gown, Lucero, is bluish/gold in color, made of iridescent, silk taffeta and inspired by the strong, yet beautiful and feminine women who have influenced De La Rosa's life. Specifically, she tapped into the classic, tailored, vintage look of the 40's, where structure met femininity.
