Perhaps one of the best known New York fashion designers who is least known to the general public, Marisol Deluna will take a look back and provide a glimpse forward at her March 22, 2012 fashion show. Deluna has designed for more than 20 years and is best known for her couture silk scarves and ties that have become part of the fabric of philanthropy in New York City. This event will include her signature designs and refashion the Marisol Deluna New York label for a broader audience.
While design houses are embracing the power of prints, Deluna never left. Her hand rendered prints are characterized by intricate patterns with exuberant but well balanced colors. Her textiles are screen printed by skilled craftsmen. Deluna’s command of detail and construction with timeless silhouettes are enlivened with her unique prints. The Marisol Deluna New York collection includes apparel and accessories for men, women, children and pets. It promises to add a new, vibrant voice to the fashion scene.
A Texas native, Marisol Deluna has been designing in New York for 23 years. Deluna has worked to preserve the craft of hand rendered designs learned while working for fashion converters with the eye to detail learned from her father, a retired aerial cartographer.
Since forming her company in 1997, Deluna has focused primarily on designing for philanthropic, social and cultural institutions. Her designs have helped build awareness, enhance public image and raise funds for various community projects.
Her diverse domestic and international clients include the Girl Scouts of the USA, the City of New York, Association of Junior Leagues International, Holland Dames, American Yacht Club, Alpha Phi Foundation, Lansdowne Club of London, San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo, League of United Latin American Citizens, New York City Housing Authority, Colonial Dames of America, Cosmopolitan Club of New York, Pilgrims Society of Great Britain and Museo Alameda Smithsonian.

Marisol Deluna’s scarves have been formally presented to HM Queen Elizabeth II, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and former First Lady Laura Bush among others.
This night of fashion will be held the evening of March 22, 2012 at the magnificent General Society Library in Midtown Manhattan.
