Canadian Fashion Designer Andrew Majtenyi has Gone International with Shows in London, Berlin, Croatia and now Dubai

    After an explosive debut with his Autumn/Winter 07 collection at London
    Fashion Week, followed-up by an invitation to show at Zagreb Fashion Week
    and Berlin's Premium Fair, Majtenyi is set to hit Dubai's runway this
    week with his Spring/Summer 08 collection.

    TORONTO, Oct. 24 /CNW/ - Toronto-based Andrew Majtenyi's Spring/Summer 08
collection will be donned by models flown in from Paris, Milan and New York
and will be styled by Kithe Brewster of Project Runway fame for Dubai's
International Fashion Week. Majtenyi will be showing alongside designers Mille
Rostock, Lilli Spina, Honey Wagar (Asia's fashion darling) and Stefan Buchmann
at the One & Only Mirage Hotel this week.
    Majtenyi's Spring/Summer 08 collection takes inspiration from 1920s and
1960s silhouettes, and is punctuated by modern tailored accents. High-end
Italian fabrics grace the collection. Versatile hues of blue-black grays are
joined by subtle shimmering creams, anchoring blacks and inky purples. Silver
metallic accents, textured dot trims and translucent sheers pull together the
silk, cottons and heavier textured twills of the collection.
    Full and mid-length body-flattering dresses, accented by geometric tone
on tone layered pieces or mesh cut out tailoring are met with flirty flared
hem and cuff lines. Strong tuxedo lapel influences are evidenced in the
jackets and suits while flirty 60s babydoll inspired A-line float dresses
round out the collection. Mandarin collars and sweeping necklines are also
    Since showing at L'Oréal Fashion Week in Toronto this spring, Majtenyi
has twice shown at London Fashion Week at the Metropolitan. His first showing
in London led to an invitation to show at Zagreb Fashion Week in Croatia as a
special guest designer. The successful debut of his Spring/Summer 08
collection at Berlin's Premium Fashion Fair in July, led to this week's
invitation to show at Dubai's International Fashion Week. Notably, Majtenyi
has been asked to return to Zagreb, London and Berlin in 2008.
    Upon his return from Dubai, Majtenyi will begin designing his
Autumn/Winter 08 collection for showings at Berlin and London Fashion Week.
His Spring/Summer 08 collection has been set up for European magazine photo
shoots for Elle Collections and Super/Super. A profile piece on Majtenyi is
slated for Drama Magazine this December.
    Majtenyi's collections are available at trendy Queen Street West's Le
Trou in Toronto. The Great Lakes Apparel Group represents Majtenyi in Ontario.
Gabriel PR represents Majtenyi in the U.K. Contracts with European buyers are
currently being negotiated.
