LOS ANGELES, Mar 20, 2004/ FW/ — Diane Moss-Martin and Eric Martin, the design duo behind martinMartin have something new in stored for the fashion flock come April 1.

Together with their Fall 2004 women’s wear collection, they will also be introducing their martinMartin Homme at Stage One of Mercdes Benz Fashion Week at Smashbox Studio.

Established in 2000, the Los Angeles-based company had gone from strength to strength. Starting as a sportswear label consisting of wovens, stretch wovens, knitwear and leather, their decidedly relaxed approach to dressing conveyed through architecturally inspired minimalistic shapes.

The clothing is quietly stylish, urbane, urban and feminine: a harmony of three different cultures – American, Japanese and Italian.

martinMartin has received national and international press coverage from Italian, British and Russian Vogue, the Los Angeles Times, Women’s Wear Daily, and the California Apparel News.

It is currently available at Barney’s New York, Diavolina, Steven Alan and other finer specialty stores nationwide

Diane Moss-Martin, the driving design force for the label, began her career as a costume designer and stylist for film, television, music videos and album covers.

Eric Martin graduated from The Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA and then worked as Chief Designer for Max Studio for Men, (a division of Max Studio).
