Fashion Forward: Narciso Rodriguez
Narciso Rodriguez is a Cuban-American with a flair for fashion. His claim to fame was Carolyn Bisette's wedding dress. Tonight, we'll introduce you to this hot designer and to his fall look.
(WSVN) -- He went from who to who's who in the fashion world when Carolyn Bissette walked down the aisle in a gown he designed.
Simple yet stunning the dress put Narciso Rodriguez on fashion's a list almost overnight.
And now, everyone from Jennifer Aniston to Salma Hayek wear his clothes.
Fashion Designer, Narciso Rodriguez says, "It's fantastic to see your things out there and to be recognized by the press and your peers."
This Cuban-American designer from New Jersey visited south florida recently to show off his Fall 2003 collection at Neiman Marcus at The Village of Merrick Park in Coral Gables.
Narciso says the look for fall is abstract... With a mix of fabrics.
Narciso says, "It was about very graphic black and white, shapes and silhouttes and cuts that are sort of inspired by athletic wear."
Narciso's Fall Collection is edgy and may remind you of the look in the Matrix....but he's never seen the movie and debuted the collection way before the film was ever released... But that's what happens when you're at the top of the fashion game you're setting the trends not following them.
Narciso says, "I'm not really interested in what everybody else is going to wear or what other people are doing I'm more interested in finding things that I like."
And for fall Narciso likes fitted looks guaranteed to make you look sharp.
"It's a collection that combines a lot of different materials, it's the way that I work, it's the way I've worked for awhile now. It just keeps evolving with each collection in a different way..."
