New York-based fashion designer Adrian Alicea will present his latest collection at Couture Fashion Week in New York City on Friday, February 12, 2010 at 3:00 p.m. The fashion show will be held in the legendary Grand Ballroom of the world-famous Waldorf Astoria hotel on the city's legendary Park Avenue.
The "Falling In Love Collection" for Fall/Winter 2010 marks the solo launch of Mr. Alicea of the Nico and Adrian New York label. The distinctive ensembles incorporate the designer's original and edgy style in a fresh couture approach. The collection is inspired by the very essence of love and a wide variety of elements shine through: the designer's love of world travel, flashes of shades of red, pink and gold, animal prints and exotic furs, the sleek lines of modern architecture combined with the soft flowing movement of the fabrics of dance - from flamenco to ballet. It's all about the mix.
A native of Puerto Rico, Mr. Alicea is a gifted designer, creative director, and photographer who has traveled the world extensively and has spent many years moving in the chic fashionista circles of Paris, Japan, Brazil and New York. He began his career as an international model and dancer and that experience lead him to co-found the Nico and Adrian fashion house in 2001. The successful team's designs have been featured on the covers of Vogue Italia and Vogue Russia, among others. Their innovative and provocative creations have captured the attention of supermodels and Hollywood celebrities including Linda Evangelista, Patricia Velasquez, Omahyra, India Arie, Lil'Kim and Paris Hilton.
