After nearly four years in business, Nellie Partow has decided to put herself on the official fashion week roster. Partow, whose presentation is scheduled for Sept. 10 at The Standard as part of MADE Fashion Week, said she finally felt ready to go from showroom to show space.
“I am still self-financed, and when I first started my collection, it was just a very small capsule of dresses,” Partow said from her Chelsea studio last week. “Now, we have a full collection with every category covered.”
