DALLAS, Feb 5, 2009 / FW/ — Burn Notice’s Michael Western played by actor Jeffrey Donovan said it best, “There is a reason why an army wears uniforms. A uniform suggests organization, power and number.” For Fall 2009, Carlos Campos explores the different facets of the uniform – from the sexiness it exudes to the darkness that comes from desire.

In short, Carlos Campos wants to share with his audience the secrets that the uniform hides. Whether it’s a priest, nun or a sadist, the New York-based designer explores the sensuality behind the man that makes the suit.

A graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology, Carlos Campos began his life in fashion design by helping creating costumes for stage plays that include ‘The Invention of Love’, ‘The Graduate’, ‘The Light in the Piazza’, ‘Fiddler on the Roof’ and ‘Jersey Boys.’

Needing to expand his audience, he launched his eponymous label, and soon after he co-founded a second label, ‘Guido New York.’ Carlos Campos designs modern menswear featuring well-tailored pieces constructed from exceptional fabrics. His collections are sold in finer boutiques worldwide.
