Bogotá fashion week is one of the most anticipated events of the social calendar of the city; the event was a call of duty for great artists, socialites, media, and designers. It was an admirable and inspirational week full of authenticity by designers like Isabel Henao and Isabel Caviedes, two Latin warriors and creative minds, who presented a colored and idyllic shows. Henao re-writes the lines of a delirious evening or day dress; deep necklines in bright fabrics were seen in timeless pieces and classy silhouettes. Caviedes meanwhile showed us her own version of the “little red dress,” accompanied by garments that define its sporty character. This designer bet on the versatility of an urban style.
One of the days saw the fantastic collection of Dario Cardenas, called “a love letter to the history, roots, their colors and emotions.” Cardenas updated the essence of “the extra long” in a more sophisticated version, combining fabrics in vibrant stitches to conquer total looks in key silhouettes with some interesting formulas: some flashes of the sixties, some classic cuts of the old continent, and some winks in the style of a contemporary and wild Lolita.
A proper farewell starring by Maria Luisa and Diego Guarnizo was the best way to close the night. In a delicate atmosphere of proportions, memorable movements, and flowy fabrics, we wrapped ourselves in a garden that found a romantic floral symphony in green and blue. It reaffirmed Colombia as a “mystical land” with a fashion “wink” around every corner, day or night.
