Sofia Davis, Editor, Fashion Avenue News Magazine, produced a fashion show featuring Thomas Lavone's Designs during New York Fashion Week Fall 2012.

"He's a fantastic designer. He's very strong with very nice and couture light gowns, long flowing pieces," said Ms. Davis. "He does great evening wear and he surprises people because he does men's wear too."

Ms. Davis has a degree in fashion design from the Fashion Institute of Technology (F.I.T.) and has worked at the Apollo Theatre for nine years as director of models.
There is no doubt that fashion is in her blood.

"If I could not do fashion, I could not live because it's that serious with me," Ms. Davis stated emphatically.

Ms. Davis covers all of the Fashion Weeks: New York, Paris, Milano, London, etc.

Unlike some fashion publications, Fashion Avenue News Magazine puts emerging and established designers together in its publication. Designers could be working in their kitchen. There is no need to have a store and designers don't have to be famous to grace the pages of Fashion Avenue News Magazine.

Fashion Avenue News Magazine has many supporters, namely Vera Moore, President and CEO, Vera Moore Cosmetics, a 35 year-old family-owned cosmetics company with national distribution through Walgreen's.

Ms. Vera, a sponsor of Fashion Avenue News Magazine's runway fashion show, was on hand doing what she does better than anyone, being supportive of other entrepreneurs' efforts.

Thomas Lavone's runway show took us on a journey of his designs from evening gowns to cocktail dresses to suits and new things inspired by Olivia from Jerseylicious.

Mr. Lavone thanked Vera Moore for giving him an opportunity to do dress the models for a campaign ad she conducted.

"She is giving, she's caring, she is always trying to help young designers and people go up the ladder as she is climbing, and continues to climb" he stated.

"This is the type of leader we need to have in our community because she is always looking out for people who are coming up," Thomas Lavone added.

Shoe Designer Pamela Quinzi Shows Off Her Kilame Collection During NY Fashion Week

Watch VIDEO: Shoe Designer Pamela Quinzi

Ruth J. Morrison, CEO and Founder, What's The 411 Networks, caught up with shoe designer Pamela Quinzi at a New York Fashion Week fashion show produced by Sofia Davis' Fashion Avenue News Magazine.

Pamela Quinzi, who started her design career in her native Italy, had her Kilame Collection of shoes in the show.

In the interview, Pamela Quinzi expressed her love for embroidery. One day, while in Milan, she took two shoes and added embroidery, pearls, and Swarovski crystals.

When Pamela Quinzi moved to New York, she started a shoe art project. She customized shoes using her embroidery technique. The additional thing that makes her shoes unique is that no two shoes are the same; the left is different from the right. The difference is hardly noticeable because the design is based on a theme.

The beauty of her shoes has increased demand for shoes in the Kilame Collection.

Shoes from Pamela Quinzi's Kilame Collection can be purchased by private appointment and at a boutique in the Limelight or at her website

Pamela Quinzi is also on Facebook and she is a Facebook marketing maven. There are few small businesses that know how to market on Facebook, as well as, Pamela Quinzi. So, if you friend her on Facebook, you will always know where her shoes will be on display and her posts will add beauty to your Facebook newsfeed.
