Model Turned Designer Features One-of-a-Kind Fashions on
Exclusive New Site

New York , October 2004


CDB Inc. announces the launch of
its e-shop (, the exclusive purveyor
of the unique fashions of Cecilia De Bucourt

Cecilia De Bucourt's trademark "neo-gypsy" style catapulted
onto the fashion and celebrity scene recently when musical
performer Jessica Simpson wore De Bucourt's signature
hand-crocheted shawl on MTV. Since then, De Bucourt's shawls
have become a highly-visible staple of Simpson's wardrobe -
and the pages of popular magazines.

An aqua asymmetrical dress designed for actress and model
Paris Hilton also has become a fashion sensation and is now
available exclusively at

De Bucourt, who modeled for the industry's top agencies for
15 years before taking up fashion design full-time, has
designed for Marciano, Guess, and Arden B., and her
inventions occupy a much-coveted wall at Barneys New York.
She was featured in October's VOGUE wearing a dress of her
own design.

"Overnight, the dress became a must-have for fall," said
Bini Mustafa of CDB Inc.

De Bucourt's clothing collection has carved out a niche in
the fashion industry because of the one-of-a-kind appeal of
its dresses, skirts, tops, ponchos, and shawls. The clothing
is recognized for its whimsical flair, with touches of both
elegance and playfulness and influences from music and
dance. Dresses often feature romantic layers of raw-edged
chiffon and tulle, and flirty skirts pair with sexy corset
tops individualized with lacing, tie-dye, or puzzle motifs.

The piece de resistance of the collection is De Bucourt's
signature shawl. Hand-crocheted in De Bucourt's native
Argentina, the shawls are noted for their sensuous colors
and wardrobe versatility.

Each piece in De Bucourt's collection is crafted by hand,
often with hand-painting or embroidery. Despite these
meticulous details, the fashions sell at lower prices than
those of competitors.

Founded in 2000, CDB Inc. opened the online store recently
to create an exclusive outlet for De Bucourt's clothing. The
e-shop ( is the single venue online
to purchase the authentic Cecilia De Bucourt clothing

CDB Inc. will update seasonally to
feature all of Cecilia De Bucourt's latest designs.
