MADRID, Sep 28, 2008 / FW/ — Shaping the fabric to create volumes and pleats, Javier Larrainzar successfully mixed tailored and fluid looks without looking cohesion for the collection.
Using floral prints and botanical shades from pink, orange, mint, lilac and turquoise to apple green and, then the obligatory metallic renditions of the colors, the balance between day dressing and evening wear was also reached.
One of the pivotal garments in this collection is the long evening and cocktail gown, which dresses the Larrainzar woman in a feminine and sophisticated manner.
A native of Madrid, Javier Larrainzar spent his childhood between Spain and Germany. He inherited from his father his passion for the fashion, devotion and effort which are afforded to each creation, thus succeeding in developing his own personal style.
He graduated in design from the Instituto Marangoni in Milan, and took post-graduate courses at the Domus. He then moved to New York to work Oscar de la Renta for three years. There, he collaborated in designing collections and organized the American designer’s first four fashion shows in Paris.
Javier Larrainzar returned to Madrid from New York in 1992 with one clear objective in mind: to pour all his creative energy into inaugurating his own haute couture workshop. It was at this time that he consolidated his position in the domestic marketplace. In 1993, he made his debut at the Cibeles Fashion Show (Madrid) that he has supported staunchly to this very day.
