NYFW Fall 2014 - CZAR by Cesar Galindo

The CZAR by Cesar Galindo Fall 2014 presentation at NYFW featured Cesar's signature "social occasion” dresses and separates. Having designed for L.A.M.B. by Gwen Stefani, Dolce & Gabbana, and Calvin Klein, Cesar is clearly a refined designer with his new collection of classic yet futuristic pieces. I was impressed with the range of the collection. From sophisticated A-line dresses with digital graphics to futuristic-cool separates with unique textures and shapes, my top pick was the white "feather-like" dress that almost looks like a top and a skirt. The best part? I also got a chance to see the backstage action before the show. It was a beautiful chaos where models were being glammed up by Mary Kay makeup artist Ashunta Sheriff and OriginalMineral Hair's creative director Janelle Chaplin. As I always say, seeing the hard work behind the scenes makes you appreciate the final looks that much more!
