Preview Elle México Diseña
It's Thursday and I'm already eager about the season finale from Elle Mexico Diseña 2013 in Acapulco this weekend.
When I went to the premiere many things were revealed, but the million dollar question is: Who are the finalist?
This year Elle Mexico decided to keep it a secret, to grow more expectation between the public.
What I can tell you is the following...
The dresscode is going to be: BLACK
Many famous and important people from the mexican fashion industry are going to be there.
The guest judge will be the amazing designer and Michelle Obama's favourite, Peter Som.
Peter is an American fashion designer born and raised in San Francisco, who aspires to provide a fresh perspective on modern American fashion and defines his style as "effortless elegance and refined sexiness"
He graduated from Connecticut College in 1993 with a degree in Art History and then continued his studies at Parsons School of Design where he was thought by Michael Kors and Calvin Klein.
Peter won the Parsons Gold Thimble Award by Isaac Mizrahi and after graduating, pursued his career as a fashion designer by working under Bill Blass in 1998.
In 2001, Som created his own line and unveiled the collection with a show at Bryant Park. 6 years later he was appointed Creative Director of women’s wear for Bill Blass, but left the company in 2008 to concentrate on his label.
In 2009, Peter Som became the Creative Consultant for Tommy Hilfiger, where he designed the women’s runway collection through to 2012.
His label, "Peter Som" is applauded by fashion publications and celebrities to this day. His collections have been featured in world-renowned fashion publications including Vogue, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, and InStyle.
Not only the winner will be revealed at the award ceremony; last year's winner Edgar Lozano will present his collection.
Edgar was named the winner by Matthew Williamson, the model Poppy Delevingne, the top Eugenia Silva, Pixie Hopkins assistant director of the projects from Palacio de Hierro. Caroline Scheufele co- president of Chopard, Elle's Fashion editor Sara Galindo and the editor in chief MariPaz Ocejo.
He is returning from an Intership at Massimo Dutti's HQ in Barcelona and will now show everything he has learned.
Here a sneak peek from the fitting at the W Hotel in Mexico City.
