For the first time in Argentine fashion history, Buenos Aires fashion week had the pleasure of presenting an Antwerp MA grad designer. Juan Hernandez Daels showed his latest collection on a catwalk crowded by hundreds—just a few hours before flying to Paris, where he holds a seasonal showroom for his international clients. The pieces were inspired by drizzly colors, thunderstorms, and light winter breezes.
Special recognition is deserved for his fusion of heavyweight fabrics and vaporous organza rendered in delicate transparencies. His clean, geometric lines play with feminine curves and tailored couture pieces. Juan showed us that he can create quality traditional patternmaking that flatters the female form in an unexpected way.
Look out for his Fall ’14 collection, Fauna.
