New York based womenswear designer Layana Aguilar showcased her SS18 collection during New York Fashion Week SS18 to an exuberant crowd in an intimate setting at Punto.

The Brazilian-born designer drew inspiration from humanity and all of earth’s 7 continents for an inspiring collection of 13 looks named “One Love”. 

“One Love is an ode to the light we all carry inside, mixed with characteristics from different cultures to achieve what I envisioned for this collection! We have to understand that Together we are stronger.” The message behind this collection is that by embracing and respecting one another, we will find peace and unconditional love together.

Aguilar went beyond just using her clothing to bring across her message loud and clearly, her team conducted a street casting with an aim to create an unconventional presentation. Among professional models were girls who may not fit the conventional industry standards; girls that are beautiful in their own unique way and that embrace the Layana Aguilar attitude.  

Key artist Marcello Costa pulled inspiration from Aguilar’s color palette, maximizing on hues of blue, rose gold and copper on the eyes to create an understated yet bold look.

Through vibrant yet subtle color choices, delicate lavender flowers strategically placed in some of the garments, ingenious style lines and the mix of around-the-world elements, Aguilar’s message for “One Love” came to life as an effortless display of wearable art.
