"Architect to the Stars" David Applebaum to be Featured in Bravo's Newest Fashion Series, "Launch My Line"

Eileen Koch & Company's client, David Applebaum will be participating in Bravo's newest fashion creative competition series, Launch My Line, featuring 10 established fashion designers paired with 10 industry professionals who are highly regarded in their own field of expertise, but have always dreamed of having their own clothing line. From stylists, music producers, event planners to CEOs and choreographers, the innovators will work with the established designers to bring their vision to life and create a fashion line. In the end, one team will be declared the winner and someone's clothing line will be launched.

Acclaimed designers, twin brothers Dean and Dan Caten of DSQUARED2 join Launch My Line as hosts, and fashion notables Stefani Greenfield and Lisa Kline serve as judges.

Each week the teams will be put to the test, as they have to rely on each other's expertise to get through the competition. Some teams form a natural connection while others have instant tension – but at the end of every episode a complete look from each team must walk the runway and be judged in front of a live studio audience.

Don't miss out on this exciting new series! Launch My Line will premiere on Wednesday, September 16 at 10/9pm (CST). For more info, visit BravoTV.

Eileen Koch & Company INC. just issued this press release --

Immediate Release


LOS ANGELES, CALIF. – July 1, 2009 – Sophistication, savvy and beauty synthesize on the eve of Sunday, August 30, 2009. The sophistication and the savvy will be engendered by Lorena Sarbu. The beauty will be represented by Emily O’Brien. Sarbu, an emerging designer and discoverer of ingĂ©nue designers, will create a unique, exclusive couture piece for O’Brien’s big night, as the young, elegant, starlet is nominated for a Daytime Emmy in the category of “Outstanding Younger Actress” in a drama series.

It was only natural and a matter of time before the paths of O’Brien and Sarbu crossed; O’Brien’s consistent mix of classic with fashion-forward paved her the way to Sarbu’s uncanny ability to show a respect for the past and utilize the fabrics and colors of today. Sarbu envisions and realizes this fusion to perfection. And Hollywood is taking note. Although Sarbu’s line, available to the public, will not officially launch until 2010, she has been designing individual dresses for actresses and socialites on a couture basis. And her client list, her status in demand, is growing with young Hollywood’s up-and-comers and all-ready-theres.

The dress Sarbu designed for O’Brien’s inaugural nomination is nothing short of stunning. Flowing, gathered fabric in shear coral blue, crowned by an oversized singular strap over the shoulder exude all the elements of elegant perfection. O’Brien as the canvas to Sarbu’s latest couture design is sure to be the talk of the 36th Annual Emmy ceremonies.

Lorena Sarbu’s exquisite boutique is located at 433 N. Bedford Drive in Beverly Hills. She also has a second location in the historic Third Ward in Milwaukee.
