AFW’S REAL MVP: ANTHONY EL-CID

Every now and then a designer comes along and blows everyone else out of
the water. A designer that gets you in the feels. A designer that makes
the hair on your arms and the back of your neck stand up and brings every style blogger
in the room to her feet upon its completion. A designer who ignites a fire in your
heart for all things creative, fashion, and design. A designer who
brings you to a place you didn’t think you could even go.

If you’re considering doing a show at Atlantic Fashion Week next year
might I strongly suggest you mimic the perfection that was Antony El Cid‘s show last Saturday night.


So often we have an all inclusive mentality when it comes to designers
who show at fashion week, and while this is great exposure for designers
this isn’t necessarily the most entertaining.

Antony hit every nail right on the head and should seriously be held up as a standard for shows and presentations to come.

Up and coming designers here’s where you go grab a pen and paper and
start to take notes because this my creative friends is how you up your
game.

And it starts with a lesson from Anthony El Cid. Here’s what he’s taught
us about how to put on an effing rock star fashion show.



Great music. You should probably pick your music with about the same
scrutiny that you choose your fabric. Setting the tone is paramount to
your collection and really can hinder your collection if not chosen
correctly. Not only did the music give me all the feels, but it made me
look at the clothes in that same intense tone (check). I was invested in
the collection and truly madly deeply invested.



Relevant and creative designs. Drawing on some major trends that are
coming down the pipe Anthony El Cid hit numerous trends from 3D florals
to Ruffles and …. I felt like I was back at WMCFW and very clearly
trend reporting again.



Beautiful use of a color scheme as well as cohesiveness. This collection
was clearly well thought out from start to finish and from head to toe.
Every piece had its place in the collection and there wasn’t a single
piece that didn’t fit together with the others. Like a perfect puzzle
this collection was complete.



Atlantic fashion designers take notes because this my dear friends is how you do fashion week and rein supreme in entertainment.



Someone get this guy an application form for the Mercedes Benz Start Up
because Anthony El Cid you could take top prize in a heart beat. Well done sir.

    Thanks for all notes.It's always nice to get some constructive criticism from professional with a lot of experience. Just one little thing.I didn't see anything about importance of great fitting of clothes on the models body and ability right to choose fabric for you idea.I don't think it's good thing to see squeezed or loose shapeless breast zone of dress on models,wrinkled not ironed properly seams,camel toe on the pants.When you choose your clothes do u care just about idea of design or fit and quality of work is important factor for you too? Also i think that before giving notes to other designers would be nice to remember that fashion is not just a market but also art and all artists have different ideas and view.Bloggers opinion is pretty important but i'm also curious what do u think how is important reaction of audience? From your blog looks like you have a lot of experience in fashion.Were you published in any famous fashion magazines?
