Our favorite fashion designer and member of the wonderful Casa de Campo community, Jenny Polanco recently launched her new collection at the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, Santo Domingo. Entitled ¿Es Arte?, this new collection will soon be in stores across the Dominican Republic, including Casa de Campo.
Described by its creator, as something “for the sophisticated bohemian woman”, Jenny Polanco considers ¿Es Arte? as a collection starring the clothing itself, by removing all accessories and complements, all attention is focused on the design lines and contrasts of each of its parts.
Jenny Polanco also said “it’s the first time I work on blue and denim texture, and it’s been a great experience.”
Jenny’s vision ¿Es Arte? was inspired by the song “Dancing in the Rai” by Robi Draco Rosa, and she used the materials linen, organza, cotton, satin, voile, crepe and mother of pearl (nacre) embroidery and litmus mostacilla to shape that dream into her new collection.
