Fashion Forward: Luca Luca Spring Collection
He's an Italian designer with an eye on American style. Luca Orlandi's designs have not only graced the runways, but they're drawing a lot of star power too. Here's 7's Shireen Sandoval with tonight's Fashion Forward.
(WSVN) -- Jessica Simpson loves Luca Luca.
So do Halle Berry.. Beyonce.. Carmen Electra.. And Eve.
Cynthia Nixon is even wearing one of the Italian designer's dresses in the "Sex And The City" scene where Miranda sets wedding speech on fire.
Luca Orlandi is the man behind Luca Luca -- whose designs have been wowing women for more than a decade.
"We have from the teenager girls to the older woman, to the most conservative, to the most aggressive and sexy looks," says Luca.
Plenty of celebrities turned out to see Luca's sexy designs at this event last week to benefit the Jackson Memorial Foundation.
"It's a very good location for us to do some charity work and, at the same time, show and promote the next collections and make more and more people in Miami aware of the Luca Luca brand," Luca says.
Luca's also in town showing off his spring 2004 collection at his just re-opened Bal Harbour boutique.
He says, "As you can see, it's a very summery collection. It's a very light in pastel colors. We wanted it to be very feminine, very gentle."
This season look for plenty of color especially melon, aqua and lilac.
From a lilac satin and chiffon evening gown...
To this tweed off the shoulder dress -- whether it's daywear, evening or sportswear, Luca Luca has it... And if you don't like it in one color, you can always pick your favorite.
"We always give you a chance to, if you find the style you like, to buy it in different colors," says Luca.
That goes for accessories too -- Luca Luca now has a line of designer handbags and shoes -- for a complete look from head to toe.
"I think it is perfect for the Miami and Florida weather," Luca says. "This is a little bit of what made us so well received around the United States."Luca has eight boutiques across the country... Which just like his collection, have undergone a new look.
