Photo: Isabel Toledo Runway Show in Puerto Rico
This past week San Juan, Puerto Rico welcomed one of the most renowned Hispanic fashion designers of her time, Isabel Toledo.
Toledo who has been designing for over two decades came into the international spotlight when her lemongrass yellow wool shift and matching coat were selected by Michelle Obama to wear to her husband’s presidential inauguration.
The Cuban-American designer who also is creative director for Anne Klein but has not staged a runaway show for over a decade. She chose Puerto Rico over Paris and Milan to introduce her spring 2012 collection. She also previewed her collection for Payless shoes, designing nine pairs of shoes for them and two purses. The designer was guest of honor for Puerto Rico High Fashion Week. All tickets sales from the fashion show benefited The Museo de Arte de Puerto Rico.
Toledo featured different heel heights and a lot of “sunset colors,” yet we love her very affordable knitted platform pumps for Payless!!!
