Nolcha Fashion Week: New York, now in its sixth year, is proud to announce that Bela Criacao will be joining the runway schedule this September 2013 for the Spring/Summer 2014 collections.

Bela Criacao designer Felicia Persaud shares: “I’m beyond excited to be a part of such a dynamic group of talent for the spring collections at Nolcha. My travels between my home in South America and New York City, truly served as a major source of inspiration this season so I’m thrilled to be bringing the sea and sunshine to the runways of New York Fashion Week.”

For Spring 2014 Bela Criacao is inspired by the sights, sounds and culture of South America, coupled with a love for the pace and intensity of the modern woman’s lifestyle. Felicia speaks to today’s woman on the go with a distinctive contemporary sportswear collection, where quality, fit and fabrics are her priority.

A collection of staples designed to seamlessly fit into a woman’s wardrobe and take her from day to night; Bela Criacao is a “Go-To” collection for the woman not afraid to indulge in fashion among the demands of her daily life. Not to be forgotten, Felicia’s signature prints inspired by the colours and textures of the Brazilian rainforest are also a collection mainstay.

Kerry Bannigan, CEO of Nolcha Fashion Week, said: “I am delighted that Bela Criacao will be showcasing with us to take the step to progress their business into a commercial fashion brand. I think the industry will be very excited about this designer and will be added to influencers Ones to Watch list for this season.”
