estilo 2013On Friday, May 17th, The Altos de Chavón School of Art and Design will present its 29th annual student fashion show, in the Salón Flamboyán at Casa de Campo’s conference center. It’s a special night, when Chavón’s Fashion Design students present their work to the public.

This year’s theme for Estilo 2013 is “Future/Classic”. The show is a celebration of chiaroscuro, black and white with bold color and metallic accents. There will be a ready-to-wear collection and a spectrum of romantic silhouettes for gala evenings, both for men and women. As always, the concepts the students develop around the theme will showcase their research and their understanding of contemporary style, with a refreshing reference to both the classic and futuristic.

The show marks the start of careers that will take these eighteen beginning fashion designers far. For the last seven months they have dedicated themselves to their designs, from idea to finished garment. Long nights studying fashion history, striving to develop concepts, and devising patterns, and draping the garments has been their trial by fire. Now, tempered by their studies, they emerge as designers who can command respect on the runway.

If you’ve attended any of The Altos de Chavón School of Art and Design’s past shows, you know that they’re entertaining and full of wonderful creative energy. This year’s event will be held at 8pm on Friday the 17th of May and will be followed by a reception where you’ll have a chance to meet the student designers.

Everyone from the Casa de Campo community; villa owners, residents and visitors are invited and encouraged to attend – its a great show and your contribution goes a long way toward covering tuition and lodging for some of The Altos de Chavón School of Art and Design’s talented future designers, students of limited means, but unlimited ability.

All of us at the Altos de Chavón Cultural Center Foundation, are eager to see you at the show and share with you this year’s colorful and exciting experience!

El viernes 17 de mayo, La Escuela de Diseño de Altos de Chavón presentará el vigésimo noveno desfile anual de los estudiantes de moda en el Salón Flamboyán del centro de conferencias en Casa de Campo. Es
una noche especial, cuando los estudiantes de Diseño de Modas presentan su trabajo al público.

El tema de Estilo 2013 es Futuro/Clásico. El desfile es una celebración del claroscuro, negro y blanco con
colores audaces y acentos metálicos. Habrá una colección ready-to-wear con una gama de siluetas románticas para noches de gala tanto para hombres y mujeres. Como siempre, los conceptos que los estudiantes desarrollan alrededor del tema mostrarán sus investigaciones y su entendimiento del estilo contemporáneo, con referencias refrescantes tanto hacia lo clásico como a lo futurista.

El desfile marca el inicio de las carreras que llevarán lejos a estos dieciocho noveles diseñadores de moda. Durante los pasados siete meses se han dedicado a sus diseños, desde la idea hasta la confección final de la pieza. Largas noches estudiando historia de la moda, concibiendo el desarrollo conceptos, e ideando patrones y drapeados fueron su prueba de fuego. Ahora, templados por sus estudios, emergen como diseñadores que exigen respeto en la pasarela.

Si usted ha asistido a alguno de los desfiles pasados, sabe que son entretenidos y están llenos de una maravillosa energía creativa. Este año el evento será a las 8:00 p.m. y seguirá luego una recepción donde tendrá la oportunidad de conocer a los estudiantes diseñadores. Su contribución será destinada a cubrir matrícula y alojamiento para alguno de los futuros talentosos diseñadores de La Escuela, estudiantes limitados en recursos más no así en habilidades.

Todos nosotros en la Fundación Centro Cultural Altos de Chavón, estaremos entusiasmados por verlos en el desfile y compartir con ustedes esta noche colorida y excitante esperiencia.
