Fashion Watch: Joel Escober

The new old comes to life at Fashion Watch presents Joel Escober Spring/Summer 2012 at the Shangrila Makati.  Inspired from the globally celebrated Studio 54,  the collection was a presentation of modern glamour as seen in breathtaking  feminine gowns in fabrics and kaftan-inspired design in tulle and chiffon. Captivating sheer sophistication was evidently displayed in bright and neutral pieces highlighted by origami detailing.  The new interpretation of of disco is channeled through the use of modern elements such as plastic zippers, stones and crystals.  Escober's contemporary design perspective in classic silhouettes is a refreshing take from the stereotype 54 look. The young designer has successfully fused the charm of decades past into pieces that are relevantly forward.  The old becomes new in a beautiful and flawless collection significantly real fashion for real women.
