Visionary New York-based designer Kristin Costa will show her latest collection at the upcoming Couture Fashion Week. The fashion show will be held at 8:00 p.m. on Sunday February 17, 2013 in the Grand Ballroom of the landmark New Yorker Hotel, 481 Eighth Avenue, in the heart of New York City’s Fashion District.

Kristin Costa is a fashion and costume designer, as well as a wearable artist. She began her career creating costumes and set designs for films and Broadway productions through Izquierdo Studios, and has been designing a collection every season for a number of years.

Ms. Costa’s collections are expansions on a theme, often visual interpretations of different aspects of a concept. She deals with psychological, mythological, and iconographic themes, and this season her collection is based on the legend of Joan of Arc, her strength and her vulnerability. The designer will explore aspects of of the celebrated historical figure as a girl, as a warrior, and as a saint, integrating bridal, eveningwear, and avante garde designs.

“An outfit has the power to create a character,” says Kristin Costa. “I create designs that can both illustrate a story, and stand alone as wearable pieces for any occasion. I strive to create pieces that have a memorable unique artistry and to dress people who want to stand out in an elegant and fearless way.”
