Academy of Couture Art designers are back in the atelier for a few major runway events. Designers Angela CHUY WU, Katherine ENYART, Sarah KIM, Rachel NOURMAND, Margaret ROBERTS, Mariana ROMERO TEJEDA, and Raquel VAN DAALEN WETTERS are in atelier in honor of Grace Kelly and a collection in presentation at the 7th Monaco Charity Film Festival in France this May.
This collection will make its U.S. debut at the Academy of Couture Art and Couture Guild International gala, Le Rêve, in June 2012. Le Rêve is in loving memory of Monsieur François Lesage, Maître d’art who was a influential friend of the ACA community.
The event includes haute couture looks from 12 graduate students. From the 2012 Academy of Couture Art Collide fashion show we saw amazing support from the community including the awarding of HRH Princess Theodora of Greece and Denmark for her outstanding role model to the next generation of designers. She is also in attendance for Le Rêve in continued support of the fit, elegance, and creativity that is haute couture and how that can transform fashion industry production as we know it. We will also see special looks from mentorship programs with Parisian couturiers such as the notable Guillaume Cardoso de Sousa.
You are invited to join the movement as the Academy of Couture Art shares the celebration in an afternoon show. For more information and a peak at what the designers are doing for Le Rêve, visit www.CoutureShows.com.
