NYFW 2015: Cesar Galindo SS’16

NYFW 2015: Cesar Galindo SS’16

TICKETS TO THE SAN ANTONIO FASHION AWARDS OCT. 10 AVAILABLE HERE!

It’s no secret that designer Cesar Galindo is a Style Lush TV favorite. We caught a glimpse of his Spring/Summer 2015 Collection during Fashion Week South and we recently attended a presentation of his 2015 Fall Winter Collection at the St. Anthony Hotel, right here in San Antonio. This was only weeks before he presented at New York Fashion Week, where he debuted his Spring Summer 2016 Collection. His latest collection is vibrant in color and in movement. An aesthetic that can definitely be appreciation during Spring/Summer, especially in San Antonio. His designs are feminine, soft, draped and colorful. Though we’re diving into the Fall season, we already look forward to Spring 2016 to start wearing these gorgeous pieces.

We sat down with the Texas-born, New York based designer to discuss inspiration, tricks of the trade and what the future holds for CZAR by Cesar Galindo.

SLTV: What was the inspiration behind the collection?
CG: Hippie CHIC! Channeling Janice Joplin, 60s gone Tech!

SLTV: I noticed there was a good mix of floral pieces, a play on tie dye and of course, my personal favorite, fringe. Tell us about your process to achieve these different, yet coherent looks.
CG:  I am driven by textiles, they are the guide of where all goes….I do my homework and discover what’s new in the textile world and sculpt the new season…..it’s like a child visiting the candy store.

SLTV: How is presenting at NYFW different from other fashion shows?
CG: Well it’s home to so many brands and represents the biz for the AMERICAS….NYC has a long history with manufacturing as well. It’s a well oiled machine, which makes it an easy experience….there is a very special vibe in the air when FASHION WEEK IS ON!!

SLTV: How long have you been presenting at NYFW?
CG: I have lived in NYC now for 26 years….and can’t even count how many times I have had the privilege to show here.

SLTV: What’s next for CZAR?
CG: Next….we have to get brand exposure and representation around the globe. My true wish is to be in the right retail spots, boutiques that get the brand and have the audience.
