Project Runway’s fifth season standout contestant Korto Momolu (Cut • Toe – Mo • Mo • Lu) will debut The Korto Momolu Collection, a contemporary female apparel and accessories line
during New York City Fashion Week at the Union Square Ballroom on February 15, 2010.
Momolu gained national recognition after participating in Bravo’s hit reality competition series, and this will be Momolu’s first showcase and collection since appearing on the show.
“This is my return to fashion week after Project Runway, so it’s important for me to establish my voice,” said Momolu. Known for her intrinsic creations, Momolu opted for a collection of serene designs that reflect her lifestyle, cultural and design background. “The fall 2010 collection is an eclectic blend of rich fabrics, detailed beading and infusion of northern African influences. It holds true to everything I am as a designer, focusing on fit, structure and detail.”
Korto Momolu, a native of Liberia, West Africa, easily stands out from the rest and has already captured the attention of the fashion industry elite. The Korto Momolu Collection includes exquisite apparel designs and carefully hand-crafted accessories with prices ranging from $150.00 to $1600.00. Additionally, her collection will include a sneak peek at the signature handbag and jewelry line exclusively designed for Dillard’s Department Stores and Dillard’s online, scheduled to launch in all stores on February 15, 2010, coinciding with her runway presentation.
Highlighted as one to watch, Korto has been featured by EOnline.com, Essence, LA Times, InStyle, African Vibes, Washingtonian magazine, Southwest Airlines Spirit magazine and more. Television and radio appearances include the Wendy Williams Show; BET’s My Black is Beautiful and the Tom Joyner Morning Show.
