Rafael Cennamo’s presentation was BEAUTIFUL. Normally, I am not a huge gold fan but his pieces definitely won me over. As an aspiring fashion designer my passion is evening wear and gowns, so I found joy in viewing his evening wear designs.

The material of every piece was magnificent. Each dress was different than what you expected.. let me explain. Some dresses you look at and you don’t even have to see the back view in order to predict what it is.. it’s predictable. Rafael’s gowns couldn’t be anymore different. The gowns caught my attention while staring at the front view and the back. I was mesmerized by his collection, and I don’t think that I can stress that enough. BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL, BEAUTIFUL! xo
