Date: Friday, September 6th. Venue: Angel Orensanz Foundation
On the red carpet, celebrities and socialites model for the camera lights Willfredo Gerardo couture. This Cali native designs Old Hollywood silhouettes that embrace a woman’s curves. For his latest collection, Willfredo drew influences from Grace Jones, as models showcased technicolor makeup in vibrant fuchsia, intense lilac, bright yellow, Cleopatra lined eyes and dewy lips. Hair was pulled back in a slick pony or knot bun. Glorious garments emerged dripping in antique gold, from bib or dangling necklaces to medallion chokers with religious and aquatic motif, chunky rings, bold cuffs, and dangling to knotted earrings. Intriguing fedoras in earthy shades fashioned with juxtaposition ribbon.
Dress styles, sheer or fitted, two-piece, belled sleeved and whimsical applique, displayed plunging, cutout or gathered looks with multi-slit features in floral hues and jewel tones. Pink lavender and chartreuse tinged chiffon swayed and flowed, sequin sparkled in soft and rich tints, and animal-themed separates dazzled.
