July 2018 The second day of Colombiamoda 2018 was full of excitement, from the Andrés Pajón catwalk to the innovative proposals by the creative minds of fashion designers from Colegiatura university in Medellín.
The Swimwear & Beachwear worlds have been product categories for which Colombia has been internationally recognized. During the Non Stop, Fashion the Colombian Way catwalk, Bahamamama, Colombian swimwear brand presented its Pachamama collection inspired by the four elements: water, earth, air, and fire in looks where palm trees, mesh bags, and mix & match prints led the proposal.
From refreshing beach we went to designer Humberto Cubides’ proposal, “Beltrán-Cubel” – second Non Stop, Fashion the Colombian Way catwalk – where innovation, styling, garment construction, silhouettes, and an exploration of materials such as mesh and leather in dark colors, set a trend in women’s and men’s clothing. Accessories located in steel and other materials such as nose rings, ear cuffs, and hand-made harnesses, and accessories such as fanny packs and military-influenced boots made the difference.
Following the runway schedule, Trucco’s Jeans ratified that the Jeanswear world will last in time through details and silhouettes like flared and slightly ragged boots with sequins and rhinestones. In the meantime, the Kinira Swimwear, Dulzamara Beachwear, Young Creatives Chevrolet, and Livenza Lingerie brands that presented their Autumn-Winter 18/19 collections showed their creativity and talent on the catwalks of The Cube.
Creativity, authenticity, and identity are what defined the fifteen collections by sixteen students and one graduate of Fashion Design from Colegiatura who paraded on the “Young Creators” catwalk. Experimental looks with unconventional materials, textile explorations with illustrations, proposals of leather goods, and innovative footwear stood out. Following it, Chamela caught us up in “A day in the tropics”, where different garment worlds in colors such as orange and greens enhanced the design of each piece. One of the current fashion colors – old rose – was seen on the Ann Chery catwalk where–besides gold and seamless girdles with leather effects–skirts and long kimonos stood out on the runway.
Modern, sophisticated, and masculine gentlemen wore sartorial suits, where tight but comfortable silhouettes were accompanied by oversized garments of Lugó Lugó, participants of the Épica: Innovation Challenge project whose collection was responsible for opening the catwalk of the City of Medellin. Defined by the designers as a proposal for “gentlemen thirsty for adventure,” there were tuxedos, full-print suits, frock coats, and a summer selection of the Swimwear line.
Inspired by the “Cabinets of Curiosities,” the digital print graphics of the botanical expeditions of Mutis, the paintings of Frans Francken the Younger, and the gastronomy of Juan Santiago Gallego; the velvetines, contrasting biases, one-button crossed blazers, and a textile base of cottons, satins, and linens were some of the most striking details.
At the Vogue Talents Corner, designers Jose Cuello, Erika Quizena, and Michelle Atelier were exhibited, along with a spectacular wedding special.
On the other hand, “CREATURES”, a Spring-Summer 2019 collection during the Chevrolet Fashion Night by Andrés Pajón, was displayed as a feminine proposal inspired by the illustrations of English artists Cicely Mary Barker and Margaret Tarrant. This prêt-à-porter catwalk was composed of layer dresses in strong colors like fuchsia and mint, and deep, draping necklines. The wedding music began and with it, bridal mermaid-cut designs embroidered with beads and appliqués that gave character to the shoulders, along with a makeup proposal by AVON, official makeup artist of Colombiamoda 2018, who made a unique look of beauty that simulated whitening of eyebrows combined with an artistic white eye shadow.
Joy Staz ended the day with an irreverent catwalk to the sound of singers Zion and Lenox where various shades of denim, laser cuts, and the use of chains, tassels, contrasting waistbands, and embroidered and synthetic iridescent phrases marked the new collection of the brand.
The last day of Colombiamoda, Colombia’s Fashion Week®, Thursday, July 26, will be accompanied by young talents and various promising proposals of national design that will continue to dazzle the attendees with their creativity.
