Last Thursday proved to be another high octane night for Latino Fashion Week. This year's theme of the student designers competition was to create a fashion forward line of what they believe will be high fashion in 2060. The students were graded on a tough criteria, including the conceptual design of their pieces and the designer's verbalization of their concept represented in his or her's collection.
"My inspiration comes from the easels and canvas… I wanted to have them wearing and be the art."
Bishara used the movie The Matrix and the landscape of Chicago as inspiration for his collection. "I wanted an attention grabbing, high end look."
Pescatore knew how to create simple evening wear for those women 25 and up who want to dress elegantly.
Andonia kept her culture as the focus in her collection, likening it to the jet-setting life of Honduras.
