Some fashion industry insiders are speculating that fashion designer Korto Momolu may take a hiatus from New York Fashion Week (NYFW) to expand her brand globally. However, the finalist from Project Runway's fifth season is poised to unveil her best collection to date on Friday, September 7, 2012 at Helen Mills (139 West 26 Street, NY).
The Korto Momolu Spring/Summer 2013 collection is the first ready-to-wear collection inspired by today's woman. Capturing inspiration and feedback from female focus groups on what is important to them, and what they feel is lacking in fashion, this collection was designed with consideration of silhouettes, fabric selections and shapes for sizes 2 to12.
Momolu gained national recognition after participating on the fifth season of Project Runway, and has presented a collection on the New York runways for the past four seasons.
Earlier this year, Korto teamed up with General Mills and ShopRite’s year-round, hunger-fighting initiative, ShopRite Partners In Caring, as a celebrity judge for a t-shirt design contest, appropriately called “Knock Out Hunger.”
Additionally, Korto will appear on a special edition box of Cheerios that will be sold exclusively at ShopRite stores in September 2012. To further demonstrate her support in raising hunger awareness, she invited the grand prize winner of the t-shirt design contest to showcase his winning design on her runway at fashion week.
Highlighted as a top 5 designer to watch by New York Magazine in 2010, and listed as "The Grio's Top 100" in 2012, Korto Momolu, a native of Liberia, West Africa, easily stands out from the rest and has captured the attention of the fashion industry elite. She has been featured in People magazine, Essence magazine, Women Wear Daily, Soap Opera Digest, and will appear in American ELLE magazine this fall.
