While all collections were extremely brilliant, I will discuss two collections below:
Paulina Susana Romero Valdez
Paulina received her M.F.A. in Fashion Design. Being born in Guadalajara, she drew inspiration from her roots incorporating baroque art and culture. Her collection included wool, tweed, silk, cotton, hand-dyed leather, and is heightened with vivacious, traditional Mexican embroidery across each piece of her exquisite collection.
Kevin C. Smith and Andrea Nyberg
I absolutely fell in love with their collaborative menswear collection. “Non-material substances” of nature inspired this luxury menswear line. As each model strutted down the elongated runway, you could view the various shades of blues, stripped patterns, and organic prints highlighting each formed silhouette. The assortment included bold raincoats, windbreakers, shirts, and pants perfectly layered incorporating a wearable and chic, but edgy look.
