John Paul Ataker – Fall 2017 NYFW Show Is an Opulent and Dramatic Celebration of Women

February 14, 2017

New York, NY (February 14, 2017)

International designer, Numan Ataker showed the John Paul Ataker Fall/Winter 2017 Collection during his fourth season at New York Fashion Week at Pier 59 Studios today.  Ataker drew inspiration from the Yazidi women of his culture to entice celebrities and influencers to the front row including Olivia CulpoKristen TaekmanMarla Maples, and Dr. Mike Varshavski. Former Miss Universe Dyana Mendoza and Nicole Williams walked the runway as Ataker showed 39 skillfully crafted looks as an homage and modern interpretation of the style, beauty and strength of the women of Yazidi.

 

Ataker creates all of his collections from the fabric up, with the premier focus on textile creation that remains exclusive to his line.  The designer’s signature shapes and tailored silhouettes are constructed to enhance the female form.  The Fall/Winter 2017 collection presented substantial materials including leather, velvet and faux fur complimented by rich layers of organza, jacquards, viscose blend woven fabric and embossing.  This season’s color palate predominantly consists of black, gray and white with prominent accents of shimmering gold for an opulent addition.  Bordeaux completes the collection off the runway. Cocktail, black tie and special occasion options as well as elegant, more casual separates featuring jackets and trousers make up the collection that garners attention for Ataker’s expert tailor’s touch.  The brand’s core attributes of deliberate detailing and sculpted forms allows the John Paul Ataker woman to feel her most feminine and empowered self.

 

The designer’s passion lies in the merging together of different colors, quality of threads, and techniques to reach the desired effect for the pattern he seeks; a creative process that Ataker takes pride in achieving through much time, patience and years of expertise learned from growing up as a textile designer and learning the craft hands-on.

 

“I wanted to celebrate the women of the Yazidi through this collection as well as other similar societies,” said Ataker of this season’s line.

 

He continues, “The laser-cut accents, embossing and wide belts are a nod to the intricate details found in their places of daily life.  I hope to capture an aspirational view of how they would see fashion if they were permitted to make their own choices in a more modern society.  I am honored to be able to immerse myself in another culture that uses historical references to tell a story. I hold nothing but respect and admiration for all woman and gain much inspiration from my wife and mother.”

 

The hair, styled by Shareena Hansen and makeup by Charlie Price, both for the Beauty Underground, completes the aesthetic of the powerful collection with small tattoos that are symbolic of their spirituality.  The Ataker collaborated with jewelry designer Freida Rothman to effectively showcase the unique accessories such as a small nose stud, bangles and statement earrings.  The effortlessly refined hairstyle of the Yazidi women, was shown as a sleek center part pulled low, away from the face with a single wave of hair to frame her cheekbone and resilient features.  Her eyes create an intensity and passion through a bold, dark line, with the rest of the face kept to a minimum, symbolic of the natural beauty of this season’s muse.

Lubov Azria – American fashion designer Photographed by Vital Agibalow.

lubov-Azria-portrait-©-Vital-Agibalow

Lubov Azria (born November 8, 1967) is an American fashion designer.

 Azria is the Chief Creative Officer of BCBG Max Azria Group, a global fashion house with over 20 brands.

Lubov Azria was born on November 8, 1967, in KievUkraine. Growing up as an only child, Azria studied ballet from an early age and eventually trained with the renowned Bolshoi Ballet youth division.

In 1980 her parents relocated to San AntonioTexasUSA, where Azria further explored her passion for the arts.

In 1986 Azria moved to Los AngelesCalifornia, where she obtained a degree from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising.

Azria joined BCBG Max Azria Group in 1991 after a mutual friend referred her to the company’s founder, and her future husband, Max Azria. As chief creative officer, Azria leads the company’s design team and oversees marketing and merchandising for the group’s more than 20 labels, which include the core brand BCBG Max Azria and the high fashion labels BCBG Max Azria Runway, Hervé Léger and Max Azria.

Of her close working relationship with her husband, Azria explains, “We’re a great combo. Max is the visionary, and I’m more detail-oriented. It creates the perfect balance.”

Azria is often called the muse of BCBG Max Azria Group, being the design inspiration for her husband and even insisting on fitting the pants on herself. She defines style as “grace, confidence and effortlessness,” and describes her personal style as “independent, free and chic.”

In 2006 Azria and her husband debuted the collection Max Azria, and BCBG Max Azria, in two shows during New York Fashion Week.  In February 2008, the couple added the brand Hervé Léger by Max Azria to their lineup,  marking the first time in history that an American designer produced three different fashion shows during one New York Fashion Week. After each show, Azria, typically dressed in one of the collection’s looks, joins her husband on the runway to address the audience.

Azria partnered with perfumer Sarah Horowitz-Thran to create BCBG Max Azria’s first fragrance, called Within, which launched in stores across the United States in November 2009.  Azria was involved with the development of the scent, and Horowitz-Thran calls her the inspiration behind it. Azria’s image is on the packaging as well as the bottle she says, “because this is something that I feel strongly about. There is a real person behind the vision.”

Azria uses social media to connect with customers. “You don’t always have to be right,” she has said, “but you have to be focused on the customers’ needs.” She maintains a blog with behind-the-scenes information and creative inspiration, and she frequently updates the company’s Twitter page. Azria has said that she watches “the TED conference incessantly”  and that browsing YouTube is her “favorite part of the day.”

In 2010, Azria was recognized for her work as a designer with membership in the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), inducted as part of its Class of 2010
