Atlanta-Based Couturier Nina Gleyzer Blends ’50s Chic Simplicity with French Opulence for Spring 2015

Nina Gleyzer fashion show at Couture Fashion Week NYAward-winning veteran couturier Nina Gleyzer will make her fourth appearance at Couture Fashion Week New York with the presentation of her latest collection “Nostalgie: Le Fin Mot”. The collection will be accessorized with head pieces by Natalya Bythewood. The fashion show will be held at 8:00 p.m. on Saturday September 6, 2014 at the Crowne Plaza Times Square. Tickets are available online.

As this is Nina Gleyzer’s final runway appearance, she designed a couture farewell collection inspired by her two loves: France, and ’50s fashion. Capturing an era-gone-by, this collection reflects a time when women sat in front of perfume-filled vanities to paint their faces and powder their noses, before dressing up in beautifully tailored dresses for coffee with friends.  “That’s how I envision women: chic, elegant… simplistic,” says Nina. “Nostaligie: Le Fin Mot” pays homage to the ’50s woman with a nod to French grandeur through the use of rich fabrication and exquisite pattern making.
