FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Nov 19, 2010 – NEW YORK , NY – New York emerging fashion designer Chabella Gomez debuted her CHABELLA women’s ready-to-wear label by launching a collection titled Paradiso, with a presentation sponsored by Grand Marnier at Le Cirque in New York City to showcase the Spring/Summer 2011 line.
“I am excited to show my first collection in New York City, not only one of the biggest fashion capitals of the world, but also a city full of culture and different personalities. I consider New York my home, and it has always been a dream of mine to present here,” said Gomez.
With the label geared towards modern women who love fashion, CHABELLA offers high-end, ultra feminine, tailored and contemporary ready-to-wear for women of all ages. The line consists of day wear and cocktail dresses, as well as separates and one of a kind hand-crafted fashion accessories.
The Spring 2011 collection, aptly titled Paradiso, is inspired by tropical travels and the Mayan culture mixed with the free spirit of Spring. The line beautifully blends colors, with naturally bold oranges and pinks, subdued by calming grays and whites. Each piece is paired with costume belts to accentuate the figure and bracelets to complete any look. “Paradiso represents the beginning of a new season. A woman who returns from a tropical vacation feeling so inspired by the scenery and different culture that she incorporates that into her wardrobe,” said Gomez, adding, “It’s designed for the fashion-lover who’s not afraid of color and mixing classic and modern silhouettes.”
CHABELLA combines classic silhouettes with edgy, modern influences to create pieces that shift from day to night, keeping women looking stunning from the office to social events. Each piece aims at complementing a woman’s body, representing her individual personality and ensuring she is always in style. CHABELLA offers fashion-forward, versatile and timeless clothing that can seamlessly take part in all facets of a woman’s life. Since fashion is a relevant part of our lives, the label’s philosophy is to establish a brand known for modern, lifestyle-conscious, well fitting fashion.
Gomez was intimately involved in every detail of the collection and credits her obsession with fashion and individualism to her mother, whom influenced her tremendously. “Growing up, I witnessed my mother’s love for fashion. She has always been creative with her wardrobe, constructing her own pieces, be it for special events or for her everyday life, she is her own designer,” said Gomez, adding, “I gather inspiration from my surroundings, the women around me and their lives. Nothing speaks more of a woman’s life and personality than the clothes she wears and her style, which like a classic novel, it only gets better with time.”
