Willfredo Gerardo heated things up as the opening designer of NYFW with Art Hearts Fashion at the Angel Orensanz Foundation on February 15th. He was a tough act to follow that night as many of the pieces in his collection were red-carpet worthy. His collection included crisp cuts of lace detailing, sexy plunging necklines with luxurious metallic gold fabrics and even a few sheer rhinestone overlays. Each piece that walked down the runway was head-turning and jaw-dropping. You heard it here first.... A Mom In Haute Pursuit would consider designer Willfredo Gerardo Fashion Royalty!!!
The SHOW-STOPPING piece was worn by celebrity Daphne Joy, Jason Derulo girlfriend. She was the perfect model for this SHEER design and we were all MESH-merized as it hit the runway. She look absolutely beautiful and glistened in this high neck white sheer rhinestone mesh gown. The mesh trend is still the talk of the fashion world and now that Daphne wore it, I don't see the trend going anywhere for a while. If you want the ultimate glamorous evening look, purchase this dress, add some red lipstick, and I guarantee, YOU will be the talk of the town!
I don't get star-struck at all, but I was struck by the love Jason Durulo showed for his girlfriend walking the runway. He was front and center, across from me, while she strutted down the runway and his face lit up as she sparkled past him. I was in awe of his support for her. This is true love!
