DALLAS, Sep 6, 2009 / FW/ — When you say Houston, first thing that comes to mind is oil and NASA. But, a new term is finding its way to describe the energy capital – FASHION, as Houston native Cesar Galindo put the city on the map with his stunning silhouettes done in bold colors.
Galindo who began his fashion career by designing period costumes for the Houston Grand Opera has tapped into his Houston roots for his Spring 2010 collection. With the Houston Convention & Visitors Bureau (HCVB) as the presenting sponsor, Galindo is also introducing his hometown to the fashion set.
As Holly Clapham-Rosenow, Vice President of Marketing for HCVB said, “It’s not every day that you get to collaborate with a hometown designer for their runway show during Fashion Week. Together we are creating a unique atmosphere before and after Galindo’s show. From serving local flavors at the bar to distributing Houston SWAG, all elements reflecting an authentic Houston experience.”
Aside from the famous Texas hospitality, what else are we expecting from the Dolce & Gabbana and Tse Cashmere vet?
Galindo states, “The current moment dictates original design desires and my clientele expects pieces which take them places and allows them to be feminine, beautiful, captivating and not basic at this point in time. They seek looks, which are classic, forward, and filled with fantasy. Fantasy is part of the modern movement currently at hand and I intend to reflect on it with this collection”.
For Spring 2010 Galindo takes you on a journey back into the future but with today’s fun and creative ease of styles, colors, textures and designs. Impeccably tailored cocktail dresses, gowns & suitings- a Galindo trademark are exquisitely designed with unique patterns, orchestrated seams; one-seam garments and engineered doses of luxe architecture perfectly accentuate Galindo’s silhouettes.
Colors- red, fuchsia, orange, taupe, gold, silver, black & white. Textures- matte, shines, clear & multi-layered. Fabrics- foiled linen, silk charmuse, wovens, chiffon solids and polka dots, some accentuated with accents of metal, mesh & beading and custom painted jeweled embellished details are focal points that effortlessly sculpture and control the look.
Expect a NASA-like lift off! For Cesar will captivate us and turn out a fashion show with plenty of color, glam, drama, looks and sound, a total package!
