Fashion designer Andres Aquino will present his latest collection at Couture Fashion Week on Saturday, February 19, 2011 at 8:00 p.m. in the iconic Grand Ballroom of the Waldorf-Astoria on New York City’s Park Avenue. In keeping with the designer’s signature dramatic flair, the show promises to be a stunning theatrical presentation combining a number of artistic components in blissful harmony.
Mr. Aquino is also the founder and producer of Couture Fashion Week.
Andres Aquino’s new collection is inspired by the sights and sounds of New York City – from the rumbling subways to the glitz of Broadway. The dynamic energy of the buzzing metropolis has long served as a driving force for countless creative minds, each responding to the inspiration in his or her own unique way. Mr. Aquino also hears the creative call of the city that never sleeps. The fusion of cultures, music and people; the myriad sights, sounds and rhythms of street and subway music from congas to violins, from break dancers to accordionists, from the haunting tones of South American Indian flutes to the social commentary of rappers; from the man dancing merengue with a life size doll to the street preachers and the “Naked Cowboy”; from the screaming sirens of fire trucks to the blinding brilliance of Times Square – and so much more. It all serves as creative inspiration.
