is a design professional poised to contribute to the fashion industry. She was born in San Diego, California, and is studying Fashion Design at The Art Institute of San Diego.
We actually met on line… I posted the call for our upcoming NY Film & Fashion Show and she was one of the 1st designers to respond. I confirmed it was all the way in NY, so we just started chatting …
She told me why she became a Fashion Designer…
“Because design has been an important part of my life since I was a little girl. When I was younger you could always find me painting, drawing, sewing, and helping my mom with decorations.”
Her passion for design has followed her till this day… She’s now drawing fashion collections, sewing dresses, doing photo shoots, and using decor for those special finishing touches. All while lending a helping hand to her peers.
I checked out her sites and I could see the little girl in her… of course she’s more sophisticated now, and Ohhh how beautiful, flirty and feminine! I felt pretty just looking at her collection!
Curious about her inspiration, she explained…
“My motivation to create new designs is my love for painting, fashion, and manual details.”
The inspiration for her Spring 2012 Collection actually comes from the name Fair Allure which can mean being elegant, beautiful, and attractive. This Spring she’s layering light fabrics like chiffon, lace, silk and fabrics with a metallic aesthetic, as well using lots of detail. Just saying it, it makes me feel pretty…
So just who is the woman that wears Carolina Cecena?
Carolina describes her as “Very feminine, classy, and carries herself with elegance…”
She stated, “One of my main focuses is feminine design which emphasizes the natural curve. This is partially due to my admiration of Art Nouveau and Romanticism art movements. Another emphasis is simplicity and elegance, which is carried through with a fine balance of detail and texture. Not too much where it calls too much attention to itself and not too little that it doesn’t stimulate curiosity”
I can only imagine the time, effort and dedication that she puts in to her collection, so what keeps her going?
“I feel very happy when I see my designs on a runway, or when it’s part of a shoot. I feel that all the hard work dedicated to creating my designs is paying off. That gives me a sense of fulfillment and drive to continue along this path.”
