The St.Regis , Roof Ballroom,2east55street,new york Award-winning Russian fashion designer Tatyana Parfionova will make her USA debut with the showing of her latest collection at Couture Fashion Week in New York City. The highly anticipated fashion show will be held on Sunday, September 9, 2007 in the Roof Ballroom of the world-famous St. Regis Hotel.

Tatyana Parfionova introduced her first collection in 1995. Premiered at the Vilnius International In-Vogue Festival, the collection received the "Golden Button" first prize, presented to the designer by Paco Rabanne. Since then she has shown her stunning creations in London, Prague, St. Petersburg, Beijing, and of course, in Moscow at Russian Fashion Week where she has received numerous awards including the "Golden Mannequin" award for best collection and the "Silver Gown" award for excellence in Russian fashion development. At the last edition of the event, Ms. Parfionova presented her collection for Swedish brand "Duchessa di Almia."

Today, the name Tatyana Parfionova defines the art of Russian fashion design. Every year a team of more than 50 artisans produces two seasonal and two interseasonal collections. All garments are hand worked and individually crafted from the highest quality fabrics. The result is custom-designed apparel that is at once elegant, fashionable and artistic. Embroidered elements add a warm touch of decorative detail, a signature of the style that is distinctly Tatyana Parfionova. Her designs are sold at her flagship boutique on Saint Petersburg's chic Nevsky Prospekt. According to Frommer's Review: "Arguably St. Petersburg's most famous fashion designer, Parfionova creates unforgettable, original clothes and accessories. Her shows are the hottest ticket in town and her pieces are displayed in the Russian Museum. For something you definitely won't find at home, stop at her boutique."

"We are looking forward to presenting the exquisite artistry of this highly accomplished designer in New York City for the first time," says Couture Fashion Week producer Andres Aquino. "Tatyana's runway show is sure to be one of the highlights of this season's fashion week."
