Tampa's Sak's Fifth Avenue Names Miami Beach Fashion Designer Craig Signer Featured Designer For '09
Noted Miami Beach fashion designer Craig Signer is being honored having been named the 'Featured Designer' for the Tampa's Sak's Fifth Avenue's Stuart Society Benefit Runway Fashion Show Luncheon and Silent Auction on Tuesday, October 27, 2009
Just a few examples of some celebrities that have worn Craig Signer include Angelina Jolie,
Brad Pitt, Vanessa Williams, Gloria Estefan, Jennifer Lopez and Ricky Martin among numerous others. The New York Post's widely read entertainment and gossip column "Page Six," recently ran a piece on the actress Laurel Holloman from Showtime's The L Word, forsaking 'the usual suspects' in lieu of one of Mr. Signer's 'Red Carpet' designs to wear for this years Emmy Awards.
Like most top models rarely enroll in modeling schools, and famous artists don't take drawing lessons, leading fashion designer Craig Signer never attended a design institute.
Instead he was discovered by the late Cecil Rothschild when she took note of Mr. Signer's keen eye and remarkable talent for choosing the right yarns and perfect colors used to design couture fabrics. Although Madame Rothschild was Karl Lagerfeld's biggest couture client, she also became Craig Signer's mentor and encouraged him to begin designing clothing. He never imagined becoming a successful fashion designer but she knew better and as it turned out, she was correct.
Today Craig Signer's self-named label produces impeccable hand finished craftsmanship, customized details, and precision cut fit designer lines for both men and women. Signer's signature red-carpet style gowns and over-the-top high waist pants are just a few of his noteworthy items in all of this collections. Housed in a luxurious waterfront estate, with an awe-inspiring view, his design studio overlooks both Miami Beach and downtown Miami.
The Stuart Society which benefits The St. Petersberg Museum of Fine Arts is offering tickets for the reception, silent auction luncheon and runway fashion show which may be purchased by contacting 727.896.2667, x197. Prices range from $75 for individual tickets to

Beginning at 11AM with the reception and silent auction, followed by the luncheon and runway fashion show at 12 Noon, Tampa's most fashionable elite are expected to turn out in droves.
