Celestino

I got to go to a clothing exhibition today for a couture line called Celestino. If there was a Web site I'd link you to it, but there doesn't appear to be. It was very interesting, which goes to show that it's good to have friends who are a) cooler than you and b) in fields that have interesting things like this going on. Apparently an exhibition just means that the clothes are on mannequins instead of on models who walk down a runway. I didn't even know they did this (unsurprising since I know virtually nothing about fashion). Kind of nice, actually, since it gives you plenty of time to look at the clothes. Like an art gallery for clothing. While the experience itself was fun, what made it even better was that the clothes were gorgeous.

It seemed OK to take pictures, and I took a few with my cell to show my roommate, so I've posted a couple little ones here so that you can get an idea of just how nice the clothing was. Unfortunately, because they're just crappy cell phone pictures that aren't even really in focus, you won't see how detailed and well made they are. Hopefully doing this is alright, because I wouldn't want to do something that's not alright, but I felt silly nattering on about clothes without being able to show people what I was talking about. Suffice it to say, while you can tell that it's pretty clothing even in my poor pictures, this stuff is far lovelier in reality than it looks here.

If I could afford to spend $2000-$3000 on a dress (which I so so so cannot), this is totally the sort of clothing I'd want to wear.

I'd never heard of this kind of fashion exhibition, but it seems really cool! You're right that it seems like you'd get a much better view of the clothes by getting to study them. I'd think I'd want to see a runway to see how the clothes move, but then also see an exhibition to be able to see the stuff up close. Of course, even if I could pay $2000 for a dress, I don't think they make them in my size! :)

Pookie, I'm pretty sure that he makes clothing on commission, so if you had the $2000 you could probably get it in whatever size. At least I think that's how it works...I'm usually cruising sale racks, so I don't speak from experience or anything.

You're definitely right that it would be neat to see how the clothes move as well. L)

HI~
They actually do have a website, but right now it only has their phone and e-mail posted. They have a huge base of private clients and even a few retail accounts, but they will soon be very well known...
Their clothes are gorgeous!
