Couture Fashion Week founder and producer Andres Aquino received the “Style Fashion Leader & Inspiration Award” from SUNY Westchester Community College. In a special ceremony and reception held at the elegant La Panetiere restaurant in Rye, NY, the award was presented by Professor Phyllis Fein, Curriculum Chair Fashion Merchandising on April 16, 2010.

Over the last few years Mr. Aquino has developed a dynamic relationship with SUNY WCC. Each season many of the college's fashion merchandising students volunteer at Couture Fashion Week sharpening their skills with hands-on experience at the prestigious fashion event with activities ranging from assisting designers backstage to technical and front-of-house assignments.

SUNY Westchester Community College is celebrating the 10th anniversary of its fashion program and is introducing The Fashion Technology & Production Degree. During summer 2010 SUNY WCC fashion students will be taking part in a special study abroad collaboration with the Scuola Leonardo Da Vinci in Milan.

“It is indeed an honor to receive this special award,” said Andres Aquino. “The experience of working with Professor Fein and the enthusiastic and energetic fashion students has been a very positive one for Couture Fashion Week. We look forward to continuing our partnership with this great fashion merchandising school, and wish the program much continued success as it grows.” In addition his role as producer of Couture Fashion Week, Andres Aquino is also an accomplished fashion designer. He has presented his designs at fashion events worldwide, including Romania,India, Dubai, and the Dominican Republic as well as Palm Beach and New York City, and his fashion accomplishments have been covered by press around the globe.

Upcoming shows by Mr. Aquino include a gala couture fashion show in St. Croix, US Virgin Islands in May 2010 as part of a literacy fundraiser, and a new collection to be featured at Couture Fashion Week at 8:00 p.m. on September 11, 2010 at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York City.
