-About my look:
I decided to wear an all black outfit inspired on the SS 2013 Lanvin men collection, which in my point of view leather and classic cuts + leather sandals are the big hit.
I believe that this neo gentleman outfit is a perfect choice to attend #nyfw.
-My DREAM, New York Fashion Week:
Quoting the iconic Mr. Walt Disney, “If you can dream it, you can do it”, I stand here today with a dream that has been a part of me since I was a little boy: Attending New York Fashion Week. Today that I am 24 years old, my dream has not changed; it has only grown every second getting stronger and stronger. My passion for fashion is limitless and like a father to his children, my love for fashion is unconditional.
What is a dream? I define it as the constant thinking and pursuing of something. That “something” for me involves everything I´ve worked for and that, with the help of Lookbook, could finally become a reality. Being a small town boy, dreams can get harder to achieve, but never impossible because the power of #dreams is bigger than ourselves. They say that when you want something with all your heart and mind, the great universe conspires in order to make it a reality. I feel that my time has finally arrived because the universe has heard my prayers with this “out-of-this-world” #nyfwcontest.
The desire to attend New York Fashion Week has been the inspiration in my heart to keep breathing, living and dreaming about this industry that has blown my mind away since I have a conscience, and New York, being the city of dreams is the scenario for my passion. Let´s face it, being a small town boy with big city dreams can sometimes be very frustrating. Watching all the fashion shows at home and dreaming about being there and meeting all my icons is pretty much a daily thing for me and hopefully this time, a dream come true.
We never stop learning, no matter how old we are. Constant learning makes great people. Learning from the best makes even greater people and that is why I see this experience as a learning process from the very best in the whole entire world: the designers and producers in New York Fashion Week.
I have had the great opportunity to work in several fashion productions, as a model and a producer, being able to let my inspiration and creativity do its work. It would mean the whole world to me to attend #nyfw and let my eyes see for the first time what they have been dreaming to see since childhood, in order to get even more inspired and driven to continue working in this amazing industry as a fashion producer.
I have never been to New York (at least not physically, because in my dreams I have!) nor to a fashion week. Being courageous enough to accept that I am a small town boy who wants to succeed in the fashion world was an enormous step and hopefully with the help of the Lookbook team, I will take another big step by attending a major fashion show in the city where I know I belong.
New York Fashion Week is the ultimate dream that I have been wishing every year while blowing my birthday candles. When you breathe, talk, think, create, dream FASHION, and when you see yourself every day in the city of your dreams (New York), that is when you realize that “If you can dream it, you can do it”.
Thank you #lookbook.NU and #dreamdowtown for this amazing opportunity for all of us #lookbookers, and the best of luck to everyone!
