Designer Courtney Washington spreads the spirit and richness of this holiday season with a holiday brunch and spring 2012 fashion show on Saturday, Dec. 24 at 674 Fulton St. in Brooklyn from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. It's free and open to the public.
From Kingston, Jamaica, Washington's fashion career started with custom-tailored garments for full-figured women. After coming to the United States, he studied at Pratt Institute and the Fashion Institute of Technology. His trendy shop, Courtney Washington Fashion Studios in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, is very popular.
Washington has expanded his collections to include sizes 12 and up. His evolution in style is not only representative of his clothes, it is also a statement about his fashion vision. In his collection, it's evident that he is focused on the future and where fashion is headed.
His looks are cleverly created with a combination of impeccable details, fun and timelessness. He also has a flawless ability to construct clothes with a women's body, shape and curves in mind.
The designer's lifestyle collection was conceived and created for clients who are sophisticated, modern, yet everyday women. These pieces are very functional, for the office to cocktails to travel and beyond. In keeping with his evolutionary, progressive eye for vogue, his collection is perfect for women to wear in every setting.
Washington's body-accentuating line is available in diverse rich fabrics and colors like red, white, pink, blue, purple and orange. There are dresses, pants, tops, suits, cocktail looks and couture designs.
Courtney Washington Fashion Studios is a fabulous fashion destination for the holidays, filled with gift ideas for your last-minute shopping.
Have a happy holiday season.
