ANDRÉS PAJÓN Y CARTAGENA
Drama, luxury, and a femme fatale. I can't think about anything else that can describe my excitement for this collection. Presented by the colombian brand Andrés Pajón y Cartagena, this basket of looks represents what's coming next for colombian fashion: risk, rich materials, innovative designs, and international aesthetics. If I put this collection side by side with some French or Italian designer, such as Nina Ricci or even Versace (back in the day), you would think this is also part of the mix. ¡And that's major for a couple of young upcoming designers!
Celebrities, socialités, or even a mom next door, can dream, and actually have, one of this dresses for that magical event around the corner. That's exactly what make this collection so special, it certainly looks unapproachable yet it's actually talent of ours, created and produced in Colombia, with stores based here. ¡With incredible prices! What else can you ask for?

VANESSA GÓMEZ - FUCSIA
If you think Colombian fashion can't go further and put on the table international aesthetics, then think twice. Vanessa Gómez came out with one of the most interesting and powerful collections I've seen during Colombiamoda (Colombia Fashion Week), in past and present. She was inspired but emptiness, the feeling and the conversation that goes around it. On the runway, clothing were moving by fans all over the floor, making the air vibrate thro' the fabrics, showing us all in the room that movement and comfort are always essential. I also felt some sort of an oriental look & feel in the production, specially when it comes to hair, make up, and shoes, but maybe that's just me. Some of the pieces were finished hand-made.
You can tell clothing were filled with melancholia, darkness, sadness, like ashes themselves, yet movement and air give the clothing new life, and all that put together, that story, and that power, is what you can get from Vanessa Gómez and her collection.

There's something absolutely enchanting about Carolina Sepúlveda and her fixation with the use of white fabric in most of her collections. Using 100% natural cotton, intentional unfinished details, and digital prints, Carolina made her "ALDEA" a welcoming choice for modern-sophisticated women who are always interested in comfy clothing, filled with fashion information, yet having something otherworldly about it. Something different and rich. Don't worry, if you are not into all white ensembles, there are red-deep orange accents and colorful lines (trazos) in some of the looks. You can't go wrong taking a chance in ALDEA.
