Hot Male Designers You May Not Know About

January 26th, 2010 No Comments

Let’s get the obvious question out of the way….

Yigal Azrouel (on the right) is a notorious skirt chaser so we know he’s straight.  But I’m not so sure about up-and-coming fashion fatale Joaquin Trias.

As I have been categorizing my posts in the tumblr to WordPress transition, I am transported back to some memorable moments.  While tagging NYFW Spring 2010, I remember breaking into a sweat when meeting Yigal Azrouel and Joaquin Trias.  I admire their designs, but I couldn’t help being a little weak in the knees when I found myself engaging them in conversation.

Hot-struck, I didn’t have the nerve to summon my Spanish (I’m fluent!) to communicate with Joaquin…or even ask for a photo for that matter.

Adrien insists Joaquin isn’t attractive, but as a woman who exchanged words with him after seeing his crisp, modern, and truly inspired pieces walk down the runway, I can tell you, this man seemed to be the whole package: tall, dark, handsome, talented, European ;)

Unfortunately he seems to think so as well.  A quick Google search lead me to this article, that lays out his noble background and reports he proclaims himself to be the next Cristobal Balenciaga.  Whoa there. Hold on to that ego man.  His designs are fit for royalty, so it’s not a surprise that is who wears his couture.  But humility will always trump over-confidence in my book.

As for Azrouel, you can read about his dating life on Page 6, which means you can throw my interest out the window.  On the other hand, I adore his designs.  Although casual, his basic ensembles are inspired and chic.  You’ll find his ensembles are contemporary and unique in a different vein from Trias.   While Trias uses geometry to accentuate his silouhettes, Azourel uses asymmetry to give character to his casual RTW.  You can see his Spring collection collection I shot with my Kodak Zi8 for “Fashion In Full Color” here.

Both are showing collections at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Fall 2010 in February, so look out for them.  I’ll be livestreaming from the front row, and will get up the nerve to shoot an interview as well :)

Megs rocked this Karen Zambos “Ricki dress” ($261) yesterday wearing it as a halter, but how cool that it can transform to a one shoulder neckline.  I love the pleating. (Blouse underneath dress on right not included).

I’m going to buy this Karen Zambos top I pulled for TMI.  It’s casual but sexy – exactly what I’m looking for in night out top for summer in LA. :: 

As for my ass, I can’t buy one, but I’m working hard on pumping that puppy up in the gym.

Check out designer Karen Zambos in her element.  Not that this has anything to do with her designs, but damn she has a rockin’ body.  If you missed her TMI episode, click here to see more of her Spring/Summer collection.

I think “Drop Dead Gorgeous” is pretty accurate.

GUSTAVO CADILE – Dresses to Impress

Today I’m off to LA to cover :: the first annual Streamy awards. What to wear, what to wear to such an event?

Actually, I have no idea because I’m playing phone tag with their publicist, but I’m guessing cocktail attire will work.  And it looks good on camera.

My first call was to Gustavo Cadile because his designs are amazing and super exclusive (how can I not love that).  I’m thinking that if this dress (above) fits right, it will be my first choice.
