[More than] A few weeks ago I participated in a very cool event involving emerging fashion and jewelry designers, and it was appropriately named Emerge. (I’m making a habit of posting about things that have already passed, please excuse me, I’m so behind.) It took place at the Museo de arte y diseño contemporáneo in San José. The idea was to pair up one jewelry designer with a fashion designer and see what they could come up with, and present it in a full-on fashion show. I had the opportunity of working with fashion designer Marcelle Desanti. Our designs worked well together, and we had fun creating the looks and pairing our existing pieces with each other.
The results were so good, and the event itself was super fun, impeccably organized and full of people.
This was the flyer, featuring costarrican model Leonora Jiménez (isn’t she beautiful??):
Here’s a few images from backstage and the catwalk:
