The designer Stella Nolasco is a household name in Puerto Rico, she has made a name for herself creating suggestive and feminine gowns. However, this time Stella had so much more on her mind than fashion, and with good reason.
Emblematic is how I can sum up the designers presentation for this edition of the Fall Winter 2018 collections at this season’s NYFW.
Nolasco’s winter melody was more about color, beautiful silks, charmeuses, and embroidered lace.
On the other hand some cocktail dresses were mounted in beautiful lattice like lace, feathers and flowing fabrics.
Miss Universe 1993, Dayanara Torres took to the runway in a one sleeved, appliqued net gown, with crimson flowers, holding a puerto rican flag.
This proposal suggest getting away, and at the same time it brought to our attention Puerto Rico post hurricane Maria and how the U.S. has handled this natural disaster, considered the biggest atmospheric phenomena to strike the island.
It also reminded the viewers about the islands relationship with the United States, lest us not forget that puerto ricans are american citizens, and deserve the same treatment and considerations.
This strong statement was rightly presented among what Nolasco does best, which is create youthful and elegant collections which by the way are loved by prom queens, brides and many local socialites.
