Fashion Icon Merlin Castell to Appear on Oxygen Network's "The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency"

Dubbed as "John Galliano Latino," Castell Whips Janice Dickinson's Models Into Shape

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - September 17, 2008) - Scene stealer Merlin Castell to appear this season on OXYGEN NETWORK'S "The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency." In this show stopping performance Castell literally had Janice Dickinson on her knees when she realized that Fashion Icon Merlin Castell was going to appear on her show. Janice originally thought Castell was hired by the producer as an actor; when she realized Castell was a highly respected designer her jaw dropped as she spilled water all over the designer cashmere jumpsuit. With her trembling hands she offered her apologies and she knew her dream finally came true in her bigger vision to have her agency known for her high fashion runway models. This will prove to be the highest rated episode to date. In this highly anticipated episode Castell shows up full force with whip in tow in his 4-inch stiletto heels and takes his runway bow in a white jumpsuit and white turban. Set to air September 30 at 10:00 pm.

Just a few years ago Honduran born Merlin Castell was a virtually unknown name in the fashion business. Now Castell is hobnobbing with the rich and famous dubbed the new "Promise" in the international world of fashion. He has captured the focus and attention of the international press due to his incalculable talent. Castell's latest collection called "Galactic" superstars was inspired by the movie "Barbarella." With the extravagant taste of the incomparable John Galliano, Castell defines himself as a chameleon; one who reinvents himself every season. Because of this, he has been recognized in the competitive world of fashion.

Since 2002 after graduating from the prestigious fashion college Marangoni in Milan Italy, Castell has been fighting to establish his fashion label with constant imagination. Celebrities like Janice Dickinson, Paris Hilton, Maria Conchita Alonso, Carlos Santana, Paula Abdul, Spice Girl Mel B, Priscilla Presley, Karina Smirnoff have fallen under his spell. Castell is defined by the press as "The magician of fashion." "My life is like a fairy tale. I'm the Cinderella of fashion," says Castell humbly; the one who can transform himself into a prince. But people don't know the real story behind the fantasy. Castell sees the future with his feet on the ground. His vision for this collection was a sharp, stronger silhouette for independent, more adventurous women like "Barbarella." This namesake movie was characterized by Oscar winner Jane Fonda in the late '60s, which was debuted on "The Janice Dickinson Show."

Merlin Castell's newest collection embodies a smart woman who in every challenge is successful and victorious. Merlin's designs appeal to executive women, but can be worn by the everyday woman as portrayed on the popular TV show "Sex and the City"; high society ladies who can afford to buy Valentino, Chanel but choose to wear original Merlin Castell designs.
