The sculptures and illustrations of many Parisian artists serve as the inspiration for Andres Aquino’s new collection, fusing Parisian sophistication with New York City energy. “I love art, poetry, architecture, dance and history,” says Mr. Aquino. “All of these influence the components of color, romance and fun I strive to incorporate into my fashion designs. Paris has always inspired poets and artists, and New York energizes the artistic creative process.”
The 8:00 p.m. show on February 18 will open with the latest collection of luxury original and giclee denims and accessories by designer Princess Tarinan Von Anhalt for her Jet Art label. The highly creative presentation will be followed by the Andres Aquino evening couture collection accompanied by an array of entertainers.
