The Czar by Cesar Galindo Fall 2014 show was more than just your average designer presentation. Galindo opted to launch his Fall 2014 collection at The Hub,an off-site location inside the The Hudson Hotel, used this season by Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.
The intimate setting felt somehow more exclusive than other shows held in the same space that week. The music, mood, and vibe of the show felt as if you were present at the opening of a new club. At one point, Galindo himself was on the floor, mingling with his celebrity clients, fellow designers, editors, and fans.
Models dressed in Galindo’s latest collection, graciously posed and re-positioned for the guests and buyers. This was a smart decision by the designer that would allow everyone the opportunity to view the composition and quality of every piece.
“Altered states” was the phrase Galindo used to describe the philosophy behind his Fall 2014 collection. Inspired by the effect technology has made on the world, Galindo set out to create a collection of wearable clothes for the modern woman’s ever changing lifestyle.
Standout styles of the collection included dresses in abstract prints, perforated leather in shades of blue, black, white, grey, and a bright peacock blue. It was challenging to find cohesion in the collection as a whole, however the collection was filled with fun dresses and separates perfect for most occasions.
