Fresh Face. Designer Gina Velasco Spring 2008

February 22, 2008 • Fashion


It takes a visionary to blend the Frida Khalo’s exquisite eye and the artistry of art nouveau. And that’s why Gina Velasco is making waves with her spring 2008 collection.

Rooted in her Spanish culture these fiercely feminine dresses and separates are perfect for a woman on the prowl. A woman who designs for real woman, Gina knows the kind of detail woman want  and demand when selecting their favorite pieces.

Velasco’s stunning selection of meticulously designed evening gowns and cocktail dresses combine elements of her muse Frida Kahlo’s paintings with a 1920’s twist, but restructured with a modern flair. Designing since she was eleven, Gina Velasco’s Spring line integrates sport with eveningwear in gowns made with beaded crochet, hints of pleating in silk chiffon and charmeuse, as well as Flamenco inspired dresses with ruffled tiers, bare back and integrated bra for comfort. Embellishing the collection is graphic artwork influenced by Aztecan culture, and the flora and fauna imagery related to Kahlo’s works such as leaves, cactus plants, braiding, and roots.
