NEW YORK — Esteban Cortazar will introduce a namesake collection during New York Fashion Week, thanks to a little help from Net-a-porter.
Twenty-eight-year old Cortazar — who exited his post as head designer at Emanuel Ungaro in 2009 upon refusing to work with Lindsay Lohan — will reveal his first solo endeavor Sept. 12 on Net-a-porter.com. The e-tailer worked closely with the designer from his early sketches, to producing samples, developing a pricing structure and now, marketing and p.r. efforts. It’s the first time a pure play online retailer has helped a designer build a brand from the ground up.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
