Largest Fashion Event in Florida Announces Ridikulus Kouture in Front of World Cameras

Following a 300-Person Model Casting and Two Fashion Shows at Maximum Capacity Attendance, Clothing Line and Lifestyle Brand Ridikulus Kouture Comes to Orlando for Its International Fashion Show at Paris Hilton's Old Mansion

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - August 23, 2010) - Ridikulus Kouture today announced the All White Fashion Event to be held at The Ballroom at Church Street, Paris Hilton's old mansion in Orlando on August 27, 2010. 

With attendance by world famous salsa dancer Magna Gopal, A -list celebrities and an audience in the thousands, the Ridikulus Kouture All White Fashion Event is set to be Orlando's red carpet fashion event of 2010, and out-performing the Miami Fashion Week.

The 60 feet of red carpet roll out at 8:30pm and CaribVision TV will broadcast the event live to 23 Caribbean countries along with Miami, Atlanta and New York. 

The event catapults Ridikulus Kouture brand into global stardom. "This is a fashion line meticulously planned and backed by a clear vision," says founder, Rodrick Burke. More than just a clothing line, Ridikulus Kouture aims to be a lifestyle movement breaking down ethnic boundaries. The brand aims to challenge other major couture apparel lines in the industry.

"Ridikulus Kouture is not only a premium clothing line, but a lifestyle brand that breaks all ethnic boundaries. Our style exhibits the concept of a warrior to manifest the battles we fight, and victories we win every day in society," Burke says.

The launch of Ridikulus Kouture is a major buzz generator in the fashion community. When Ridikulus Kouture hosted a limited invite-only casting to identify models for this year's show, over 300 models showed up and the casting had to be cut short for security reasons.

The management of Ridikulus Kouture chose Orlando for this year's show to permit a larger audience. "Orlando is a strategic hub for the future of American fashion. To accommodate the record attendance we've scaled up everything this year: Venue, Show, Models -- We've even ramped up security," says Burke.

The Ballroom at Church Street has over 22,000 square feet on multiple levels. "We chose a mansion-type setting because it reflects the attitude of our brand," Burke adds.

Because tickets are selling quickly, the company is releasing additional tickets to meet demand. Tickets will be advertised on TV and radio. For more information, visit
