Prior to us attending CFW, I setup and exclusive interview with the Genius and Mastermind of Couture Fashion Week, Mr. Andres Aquino!  Our interview was beyond magnificent it was just so incredible and just speaking with such and imaginative, visual and fashion forward person to paint you the picture of what he is going to bring to the event is just Awe Inspiring to say the least- I asked Andres how does he keep things fresh? He stated: “I love fashion; and for me to keep it fresh I always compete with myself as to not to become stagnant.” I really thought that was a profound statement, Andres looks at each element to build upon, even when it comes to the runway for his show. He uses the U shaped runway as well as the W shaped, because it makes it intimate and involved and giving you more for your eye to take in and the stimulation of the senses. Now this brings us to the night of Andres Aquino’s Fabulous Runway show and I hope you all enjoy and we cannot wait to hear what our Special Correspondent Najaam Lee of Vedic Image Group has to say!

(Special Correspondent: Najaam Lee: “Finally its time for the Man of the Hour!! We’ve come back from intermission and its now a Packed house and the runway has been changed from a U to a W and a draped screen that  looks like a theatre, is placed as a backdrop for the show, and now its time for the show to start and it opens with Carole Bufford who is a blues singer with a wonderful way of painting a story through the music and her voice and then the first look comes out onto the runway and its breathtaking a 3 tiered soft gold toned dress that is just beautiful You just have to see what we’re see:”)

The hair is just so elegant and sort of 18th century, and mysterious- A few of the hair styles were sculptors of high hat and very different!! You have to see what else is just slinking out onto the runway and each piece just keeps getting better and better!!
