MANILA, Philippines - Dubai-based designer Ezra Santos' love for Gaudi's Spanish architecture is translated into fashion in his Philippine Fashion Week Summer 2013 collection for L'Oreal Paris.
The designer, whose designs were also showcased at the Jewelmer Gala on October 22 and the Bench Universe Denim and Underwear fashion show last September 13 and 14, presented sexy architectural creations on the catwalk of SMX Function Rooms 2 and 3 on October 23, the first day of the Philippine Fashion Week season.
His collection followed that of Albert Andrada's "Morning at Etretat," inspired by a Claude Monet painting.
Santos is known in the Philippines and Dubai as a master of construction and virtuoso of ornamentation, integrating ceramics, stained glass and even wrought iron in his pieces. He says that he took his inspiration from Gaudi's unfinished masterpiece, the Sagrada Familia.
