DESIGNER MATERNITY DUD ON THE DIME: THE BUMP IT UP SALE ON GILT

Bump It Up Approved

To pregnant women, the thought of looking dumpy during pregnancy is unwelcome. But, having to spend the big bucks on clothing with a nine month shelf life is downright disturbing. So, when the GILT GROUPE asked me to curate a sale which brought the elements of my book BUMP IT UP to life with the creme de la creme of maternity duds, I jumped at the chance. I worked with my pal Jennifer Strom Simonte of Bellydance Maternity to score maternity must haves from Maternal America, Chaiken, NOM, Paige, Noppies and Ingrid & Isabel. Then, I mixed and matched them-based on sketches from my book-to create multi-tasking looks for every occasion. Next Monday September 13th, the PREGNANCY GLAMOUR BY AMY TARA KOCH SALE on www.gilt.com will fulfill that pregnant woman fantasy: Big style on a dime. The best part? Most of these pieces will work during and after pregnancy!

FOX-Y IN THE FAMILY WAY

I was so excited when FOX NEWS invited me to appear in four segments about pregnancy style last week with the fabulous and most pregnant host COURTNEY FRIEL. THE STRATEGY ROOM was a live chat fest with HEALTH’s Frances Largeman Roth, THE BUMP’s Carla Roney and premier neonatologist Dr. Joanne Stone. The next day, I got to prove my maternity mettle with three models that I had never met. When Ruah, Neha and Mary turned up at 9:30 am to be styled,  my mouth dropped. These chicks-Ruah Bhay, Neha Arora, Mary Wassner (who was due the next day!)  looked like they came from FORD’s FERTILITY division!  The entire Green Room was transfixed as these soon-to-be moms morphed (with a little help from me and my accessories) into runway ready vixens.

The fashion pieces will appear on FOX EXTRA which airs on Fox News Channel and Fox Business Network abroad.  The segments will also be sent to 100+ Fox Affiliates, for their own use, and possibly be posted to foxnewshealth.com. I’ll keep you posted!
