Colombiamoda Fashion Show In Medellin
Colombiamoda in Medellin celebrates 19 years of fashion July, 2008!
Colombia's Fashion Week closes with the highly anticipated show of Spanish designer Custo Dalmau. Colombia's fashion week closed on Thursday night, as local and international designers displayed their latest collections on Medellin's catwalks.
The Colombia Moda, one of Latin America's top fashion events, attracted over 700 buyers from 24 different countries throughout the week.
Wednesday's (July 30) highlight was the show, put on by the underwear and beachwear brand 'Leonisa'. Its sexy, lavish creations pointed out the fashion trend of the upcoming summer season in Colombia. The bright coloured red, pink and yellow lingerie embroidered with laces and glitter seemed to match perfectly the show titled "Latin Furor".
But it was the celebrated Spanish designer, Custo Dalmau, who stole the spotlight in the Colombian Fashion Week. His brand, 'Custo Barcelona', widely known for its t-shirts, closed the last and final night of parades with a show that mixed outfits from both winter and summer collections.
Dark colours and the blending of fabrics - another Custo Barcelona trademark - prevailed in Thursday night's show. Some tones of green, blue and yellow also showed up on the catwalk.
The fashion event claimed that from January to April 2008, the Colombian clothes industry generated sales worth $879 million dollars. The main engine of exports comes from dressmaking and tailoring, and in the same period, it grew 42.2 percent jumping from $325 million to $476 million dollars.
