A unique and exquisite fashion presentation “BACKSTAGE at the Great Gatsby“; evoking the 1920’s era showcasing not only beautiful gowns from our Atelier collection, but also launching our Italian chunky knit faux fur collection along with exquisite lingerie pieces that will create a boudoir ambiance and sensibility.
My idea is to convey the “AUTHENTIC” beauty of fashion, by leading all our guests through the entire process of making a beautiful collection … where “BACKSTAGE” meets “CENTER STAGE”. The venue will be held at the magnificent and luxurious Baccarat hotel.
From the moment that the models arrive for hair and make up, guests will experience true backstage action. My intention is to celebrate the effort and power of a “TEAM” which is often left unnoticed and forgotten.
Guests will be interacting and watching the “Great Gatsby” era come alive while models are transformed into beautiful, powerful (#metoo-movement) and independent women that use fashion as a vehicle of self-expression.Penaranda’s collection is replete with silk organza, crinkle chiffon along with lavish metallic brocades, shine burnt outs and silk iridescent tulle, with simple cuts that are the hallmark of the Penaranda brand. His designs range from edgy to elegant, espouse a refined sophistication, and exemplify exceptional craftsmanship
