Night one of Art Hearts Fashion NYFW heats things up with a showcase of Latin Designers at the Angel Orensanz Foundation Event Space in Manhattan.
The Art Hearts Fashion Latin Showcase opened Monday, Feburary 15th with designer Gregorio Sanchez. The collection’s crisp cuts and lace detailing were juxtaposed with bold patterns and brought to life with cinched waists. Pops of color and belting enlivened the spirited collection. Bold looks by contemporary handbag designer Kristina George accessorized the collection. Designer Pineda Covalin showcased an expressive collection of womenswear and menswear. The diverse designs brought movement to the New York runway. Wraps, vests and printed dresses burst with geometric shapes and bright colors. Willfredo Gerardo closed the evening with a collection of inspired gowns. As the snow and ice glistened outside New York City, Gerardo’s gowns glistened with ornate glamour down the runway. A palate of gold, silver, and sparkling white, mesmerized guests throughout the collection. Celebrity model Daphne Joy closed the show and Jason Derulo came out to support.
