Two New OC Fashion Week Designers
A few new designers added to the line-up include:
Charmaine Joie: With over 22 years experience in the fashion industry (BCBG ,NBC "Fashion Star", Samsung ) Charmaine J Rodriguez is finally emerging as a couture designer - under her new label Charmaine Joie Couture. Designing for the woman who wants to reflect her true beauty.
Through the years, her knowledge and skills grew by learning every aspect of the design and production process. In 2011, Charmaine became part of the NBC series " Fashion Star" for 2 seasons. This catapulted her to become a full-fledged designer. Forward to today, she's finally launching her own couture dress line and label, Charmaine Joie Couture.
Marc Aaron Bright strives to create garments unlike what can be currently seen or easily found. His aesthetic trademark is the mixing of prints in unexpected ways, with an emphasis on unique construction, heightened reality, and wearability - a combination he refers to as "casual avant-garde".
Floral prints, natural imagery, myths and fables, and structural lines are his primary inspirations. Marc has worked as a professional pattern-maker for the athletic apparel industry and currently is a fashion professor at Saddleback College and Santa Ana College. He was recently chosen to intern for Anya Ayoung-Chee, season 9 winner of Project Runway, and constructed looks for her "Canyaval" show at Milk Studios in New York City.
