Italian-Venezuelan fashion designer Rafael Cennamo, whose pieces have been worn by Hollywood stars like Jada Pinkett Smith, Beyoncé, Debra Messing, Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift, recently sent his Japanese-inspired Spring 2013 line down the runway at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week.
Rafael Cennamo launched his label in 2006 and has since become renowned for the elegant couture designs and strong vision he brings to the world of eveningwear.
Fueled by his passion for modern glamour, Cennamo designs with a classic eye, but sees through a contemporary lens. He uses bold colors and luxurious fabrics coupled with edgier structures to reinterpret classic couture silhouettes, creating a truly beautiful effect.
Cennamo’s collections can currently be found in at select Neiman Marcus stores, Saks Fifth Avenue, Harvey Nichols, the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada, and Daslu in San Paolo, Brazil.
He currently runs his company out of New York, with plans to open boutiques in New York and Miami.
Take a look at a few of Cennamo’s garments from his Spring 2013 as well those from his White Couture Spring line.
