Color and stridency characterized this second day of catwalks and fashion
The Nicaraguan and runner-up of Project Runway Latin America, Shantall Lacayo, filled us with prints and unique cuts, with an ourstanding collection titled “The Jaguar and the Moon” where she goes through a range of unique fabrics, colors and shapes that show us their audacity for fashion.
She describes her collections as avant-garde, sensuously bold and attractive to a modern and sophisticated woman. In a walkway inspired by the works of the Nicaraguan poet Pablo Antonio Cuadra, the central figure of the Latin American avant-garde, Lacayo delighted us with cuts out, colors, visual illustrations, funny details and an eighties air that we all enjoyed! Art, history and modernism.
For its part, Custo Dalmau, from Custo Barcelona presented his collection inspired by the past and the future, with a lot of air and influence from the 70’s – 80’s but with textures and prints with futuristic airs; very disco, chic and glamorous loaded with metallic fabrics, eccentric embroideries, color and tribal prints. Dalmau once again showed us his ability to adapt different styles in a same collection for the Miami vibe.
He has been recognized in Italy, where he received the Kore award, known as the “fashion Oscar”. Mreover, in Spain (his native country) with the magazine Prix from Marie Claire as the best designer of the year. He also got two prizes of Metaphor magazine, one for its international projection and another for its advertising campaigns.
