Nolcha Fashion Week: New York, now in its seventh year and held simultaneously to New York Fashion Week, is proud to announce that Mariana Valentina will be returning to showcase for the third time in September 2014 for the Spring/Summer 2015 collections.

Mariana was born in New York, where she pursued her studies at the Fashion Institute of Technology. Being raised in the Hamptons, with an Argentine and European heritage, Mariana’s personal style was influenced by the glamour and high society from around the world.  After many years of working for several high end boutiques, showrooms, and styling agencies, Mariana decided to finally launch her own line.

Designer Mariana Valentina comments, “I am really looking forward to showing with Nolcha Fashion Week for the third season now. The show gets more and more entertaining, always with a successful outcome and an exciting audience.  After many years of designing dresses only for myself and my friends, it is an incredible feeling to have my designs come to life on the runway.”

Mariana’s aspiration is to create something that encourages women to feel sensual and romantic, while at the same time exuding a chic yet classic femininity. Mariana’s designs allow a woman to show her character and express her personality through unique style and elegance.  Kerry Bannigan, CEO of Nolcha Fashion Week shares; “As always I am thrilled to include Mariana in our roster of runway designers. The work of Mariana Valentina captures the audience and lures them into a feminine world of sensual beauty. I look forward to seeing what the brand unveils this season on the runway and am very proud of the vision Mariana continues to strengthen.”
