Homage To Many Bygone Eras

Argentinian Ice Skater turned New York based Fashion Designer, Alex Vinash showcased his Fall/Winter 2017 collection on Monday, February 13 during his runway show at HAUS NYC.

This season was full of “exquisite luminosity,” as described by Vinash of his use of dark colors and metals.

Combined with flower appliqués and hand embroidered birds, reminiscent of the 70s, all the while paying homage to the 20s, this collection was both vibrant and elegant. Vinash introduced ready-to-wear pieces along with a Men’s collection.

“My designs centers on the body, how it moves, and most importantly how you feel in them,” said Vinash of his desire to create pieces that promote grace and sensuality.

This fourth collection further echoed that brand ethos.

Alex Vinash is a New York based fashion Designer, by way of Buenos Aires, who channeled his experience as an Argentinian professional ice-skating national into fashion design.

Vinash transitioned seamlessly by designing dance and ice-skating costumes, while choreographing ice-skating shows throughout Europe.

He later began designing intricate custom-fitted clothing, primarily using the moulage technique. Vinash has received critical acclaim through showings in Fashion Week at New York, Spain, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and Boston.

Of those in attendance at the unconventional runway show were some familiar faces like Carla Hall (ABC’s The Chew), Lexi Lawson (Lead Actress, Broadway’s Hamilton), and Eden Sassoon (RHOBH).

As well as Pearl Thusi (Actress, ABC’s Quantico), Tracy Ifeachor (Actress, ABC’s Quantico), Kayla Brianna (Recording Artist), Gina Naomi Baez (Actress, Netflix’s Orange is the New Black), Tinkerbelle (celebrity dog), and iHeartRadio’s DJs Lulu and Lala.

The teams responsible for the models’ flawless looks were: celebrity hair Stylist Ted Gibson, celebrity makeup Artist Brian C. Hawkins, and nails by the MLM Nail team.

Each model donned the new line of Montaigne Paris shoes, while ZICO water was on hand for both guests and models backstage.

The after party featured music by iHeartRadio’s DJ Dramos.
