César Galindo has awed fashionistas before, but the designer and master tailor has reached new heights with his most recent ready-to-wear collection, CZAR . As a renowned designer whose work has helped shape the creative vision for private clients ranging from Gwen Stefani, Dolce & Gabbana, Calvin Klein Collection and Madonna, the former Houston, Texas artist’s reputation for creating curve-conscious clothing with a fashion forward aesthetic is nearly unparalleled in the industry.
“The collection was inspired by a garden party theme,” said Galindo, speaking backstage just moments before his Spring/Summer 2013 runway show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. “It’s a very happy collection. Right now the way life is, if you can put something on that makes you feel better, that’s what it’s all about.” Click through to see exclusive behind-the-scenes moments from the show and runway photos of his brightly-colored, geometric print contemporary looks.
