Five Ecuadorian designers inspired by the latest paintings of the Guayaquil painter Christian Cruz captured their designs with metallic colors, fluorescent and neon in Fashion Art, last Saturday 8, in the agora of the linear park before the Catholic University.
The Next Models Ecuador modeling school, in Kennedy north, was the organizer of the event. "The theory emerged as an attempt to improve the banal concept that a lot of individuals have about modeling," says Edson Parreño, director of the school.
"This profession encompasses many skills because in the manner of walking and the expression of the facial skin emotions are projected as in the theater; the facial skin becomes a fabric at the time of creating the models, as though it were a painting, that's why it is highly recommended art," he says.
The designers who participated in this catwalk were: Ana Belén Menéndez, who was simply inspired by the painting Nocturno Placer for her creations; the Colombian Adriana Torres, with the painting Creation; María Leonor Vera, with Gama celestial; Álex Gaibor (designer of accessories), with the task En lo alto, and fifteen novice designers of the Tecnológico Sudamericano (TECSU) with the painting Escalones Alfaro.
The painter's paintings were projected on giant screens during the event. "Christian was chosen because through his abstract art, he captures the feelings of everyday life," says Edson.
The modeling school organizes these parades, with free admission, so that individuals will get to learn Ecuadorian. "This is one way we subscribe to the neighborhood industry," Edson says. Along with the parade there was violin music to accompany the catwalk, along with the Guayaquil group Melivia, with Latin rock. The Ars Nova school showed a theater number; Jimmy Mendoza's group and the YoDance academy performed dance.
At the end there was a raffle for make-up courses; ten folks from the audience won. On September 28 the school will organize the Guayaquil fashion, with local designers, in the zigzag bridge of the Malecón del Salado.
