Rafael Cennamo presented a masterful blend of glamorous and opulent evening wear, for his Fall 2012 collection.
Cennamo’s execution kept a steady wave of admirers enchanted during the third day of Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in New York City, and his recipe for inspiration was sleek, couture looks, blended for a strong, confident woman (with a dash of edge). To set the mood for his show, Cennamo highlighted luxurious fabrics and colors, ranging from silks, metallic chiffon's and crepes... to steel greys, midnight blues and sapphire.
His aesthetic has become synonymous with celebrity clients including Gabrielle Union, Eva Longoria, Taylor Swift and Vanessa Williams; and, as he is known for recreating classic silhouettes... Cennamo's designs, simply, leave you wanting more.
