Bellaforma Wine, a Caribbean-owned wine company, joins as an Official Sponsor of Nolcha Fashion Week: New York Spring/Summer 2015, which runs September 4th – 8th, 2014.

Bellaforma Wine is a producer of premium wines made from the exotic fruits and flowers that adorn the Caribbean landscape. Bellaforma was the original name given to the island of Tobago by Christopher Columbus. The name means “beautiful form”. This is a most fitting description of the wines as they encapsulate the beauty and essence of the beautiful chain of Caribbean islands.

Celise Bell, President, Bellaforma comments: “Wine is both art and passion. There is no better place to witness this symbiotic relationship than at Nolcha Fashion Week: New York where they are both on full display.”

Bellaforma Wine is the vision of Laurence “Saundo” Saunders who was a native of the island of Tobago from the small village of Moriah. His goal was to produce quality fruit wines using local fruits. His passion and determination were infectious and soon became a family affair. He worked hard at refining his craft and experimented with a variety of local fruits and flowers. In the summer of 1993, his winemaking dream became a reality.

Mr. Saunders did not live to see his vision fully realized, but the tradition of quality, ingenuity and excellence lives on.  It is Bellaforma’s goal to build upon this foundation to craft distinctive wines of unparalleled quality; currently offering three fruit wines – Passion fruit, Sorrel and Pineapple.

Guests will be able to enjoy Bellaforma Wine throughout Nolcha Fashion Week: New York at the runway shows held at Pier 59th showcasing independent fashion designers from around the globe as well as various other events throughout the schedule.

Arthur Mandel, Nolcha Fashion Week Co-Founder comments: “I am thrilled to welcome such a brand as Bellaforma Wine that strives for incomparable quality and incorporate it into our week of events. The attendees of Nolcha Fashion Week: New York will thoroughly enjoy the diverse tastes of this distinct wine. I thank Bellaforma for supporting our vision for independent fashion designers business growth as they continue to build their founders dream.”

This season’s events will run September 4th – 8th, 2014, including individual and collective runway shows, an exclusive bloggers brunch, fashion lounge, networking events and an official fashion week closing party.
