In his debut showing at Couture Fashion Week New York, designer Pawan Seewooruttun will present the latest collection for his New Miuz label at 8:00 pm on Friday September 9, 2016. The highly anticipated runway show will be held in the Broadway Ballroom at the Crowne Plaza Times Square Manhattan, 1605 Broadway, New York City.
Entitled “Sunspring,” New Miuz’s classic and elegant collection for Spring/Summer 2017 is inspired by the peaceful and beautiful island of Mauritius. It conveys the story of the first sunset of summer from a delightful flower garden, focusing on the sun’s transition between dawn and dusk. The primary palette is light peach, coral and ivory, reflective of the stunning tangerine and coral lights and shades that paint the sunset clouds. The collection is made of the finest silk, chiffon and tulle, among other fabrics, and is complemented with hand made embellishments such as embroidery, appliques, and Swarovski crystals.
