WGC sponsors Montano’s spring 2004 show

World Gold Council has partnered with fashion designer Mark Montano to accessorize his Spring 2004 Collection entitled “Modern Day Saints” with real gold jewelry. The fashion show will be held in the tent at Bryant Park at the “7th on Sixth Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week” on Friday, September 12 at 8p.m.

For the “Modern Day Saints” Spring 2004 collection, Montano will be paying homage to gold’s intrinsic beauty and classical heritage by featuring authentic, modern gold jewelry styles provided by the World Gold Council.

“As I began designing the spring line,” says Montano, “I knew I wanted to use gold jewelry. It has been around since classical times and has an ancient association to powerful and saintly women. By using today’s fashion-forward, yet affordable gold jewelry, I can express the emotional connections that gold inspires in today’s women and enhance this sexy, bold and empowered fashion collection.”

Product from multiple designers and manufacturers will be included in the show and will range from mass manufactured link chain to one-of-a-kind designer cuffs. A total of 33 looks will be completely accessorized with gold jewelry.

Fashion designer Mark Montano designs a signature collection of empowering “downtown couture” which has a worldwide following. The youngest member ever to be inducted into the Council of Fashion Designers of America, this Colorado native’s creative life began at the young age of 14 when he began designing funky clothing for his mother.
