It was a wonderful night in fashion especially for Latin American designers to be representing their community, but the highlight of the evening had to be the closing designer that captured the evening, Wilfredo Gerardo at the Angel Orensanz Foundation.
I don’t write this because he’s my good friend and I’m more biased, or even because I’m a girl and I like dresses. But because his designs are what every girl wants to feel in a dress, expensive, and luxurious. Last Monday we got a sneek peak into what his collection has to offer and it’s stunning!
Most definitely the central theme revolved around darker and neutral hues, as well as beaded and shimmering sheers. Lot’s of depth to the pieces yet simple and elegant, high slits stole the evening and very dramatic cut outs.
These few were my favorites on the runway, and it was so spectacular. The last pic you see is the famous celebrity model Daphnie Joy wearing one of his pieces. The energy in the house was so tremendous. Even though the other designers had a few key pieces that were quite amazing, Willfredo’s pieces took the night. When the music took over, people were waiting with baited breath to see what Willfredo was showcasing and he did not disappoint. Especially when the nude with black overlay dress stepped out, you could hear a gasp throughout the house because that piece was simply gorgeous. Another highlight of the evening was having celebrity pop star Jason Derulo sitting in front of me. I wanted so bad to say something to him, but didn’t want to start geeking out all over.
I’m happy to report that the trend that’s up and coming is, and will be, nude or sheer juxtapositions. Willfredo was not the only designer showcasing that, some of which are Emilo de la Morena, and Alexander McQueen to name a couple. So ladies, it looks like these upcoming few months, (since we’ve had some mild winters) we’ll be making room for more sun, sheer, and sparkle.
