On Tuesday, September 13th Tumbler & Tipsy by Michael Kuluva presented their Spring/Summer 2017 collection at Kia STYLE360 during New York Fashion Week.
Presented by CreakyJoints®, the worldwide online patient community for people with all forms of arthritis, the new collection, “Creaky and Tipsy” is directly influenced by the designer’s personal experience with the disease. The new collection featured looks highlighting key arthritic focal points on the body while staying true to the Tumbler and Tipsy brand with bold colors, funky embellishments, and playful designs.
The packed show opened up with a special performance by English singer/songwriter Neon Hitchwho performed a medley of her hit songs “Fried Chicken @ Night” ( a song off the new album “Anarchy”), “Ass Back Home”, “Devil” and “F U Betta.”
After the lights went down, the first model to hit the runway to the audience’s delight was Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice’s 10-year-old daughter and star in her own right, Milania Giudice. Additional runway models included Olympic Gold Medalist Dalilah Muhammad, Olympic Silver Medalist Nia Ali, and Asaf Green from “So You Think You Can Dance” who danced and backflipped down the runway. Closing out the show was celebrity reality star and model Somaya Reece and cast member of E!’s new reality series Famously Single.
Celebrity guests included Teresa Giudice, Brittany Fogarty and Marissa from Mob Wives, Teen Disney star and pop singer Ashlee Keating, pop star Brielle, New York night club owners Kayvon and Anna Zand and more.
Says designer Michael Kuluva of the “Creaky and Tipsy” collection “For our new Spring/Summer 2017 Tumbler and Tipsy collection, I wanted to partner with an organization that was close to myself and my family’s heart. Since becoming a part of the CreakyJoints family, I have been inspired to learn more about my RA and continue to lead an active and productive life despite the diagnosis. To highlight and celebrate this, we partnered with CreakyJoints for New York Fashion Week. As someone who has been diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA), I wanted this collection to highlight my own personal experience, while also bringing awareness to such a debilitating disease and the goal of living successfully, despite it.”
