DSQUARED2 Spring 2015

Dsquared-spring-2015-fashionado

It's a new Dsquared2 for Spring 2015. The Caten twins, Dean and Dan are revealing a more sophisticated approach. I like it. The sex is still there but it has been refined and polished in silk raffia and beadwork. I especially appreciated  the juxtaposition of pairing "casual" crop tops with full skirts and denim jackets or jeans with perfectly tailored blazers. The bold, colorful prints and patterns Dsquared featured throughout the collection was inspired by the work of contemporary artist Sonia Delaunay. [One of my faves!] View Collection:

Sunday Landscapes

cuba-varadero-fashionado

I thought I'd share with you where my mind and heart are this morning. Every time I scroll through my iPhotos I stop at this image and smile. So peaceful and serene. It's from the picturesque country side heading back to Havana from Varadero. I snapped the photo on a sunny Sunday in April. 

I wish everyone a restful and Happy Sunday! xo

LIVING ART AMERICA OCTOBER 2014


The 5th Annual LIVING ART AMERICA is back and it's grown bigger than ever! LAA is now a three-day event - just because one night is not enough to showcase all the tremendous talent featured in this World Bodypainting sanctioned event. LAA is one of my favorite events in Atlanta and this year promises to be even more spectacular than before - if you can imagine that! 

**For event info & TICKETS, visit the Living Art America website ... and hurry, this event sells out!



[In this video] Enjoy runway highlights of last year's Living Art America and includes my interview with founder/director Randi Layne.

Official Trailer: Finding Dad: "Mira...tu Papa"

vincent-martinez-cuba-finding-dad-fashionado
Finding Dad: "Mira... tu Papa" is a film two years in the making.

I first got the idea when I turned 46 and it hit me that my father, who I hadn't seen or been in contact with since 1970 was nearing 80 years old. 

Last April my wish became a reality. I traveled back to Havana, Cuba, along with my mother, to reunite with my father. My longtime friends (and fashionadoTV partners) Gil and Dania joined us. And the adventure began. It was their first time back to Cuba as well.


Join us on October 17th, 2014 at the Georgia Pacific Center for the premiere of Finding Dad: "Mira... tu Papa."

We are thrilled and honored to be kicking off the 3rd Annual Georgia Latino Film Festival with our documentary. Please support us by attending. *For tickets, visit: www.georgialatinofilmfestival.org

Betsey Johnson Spring 2015

Betsey-Johnson-spring-2015-fashionado

Love was in the air at Betsey Johnson for Spring 2015. Drag Queens and 'Real Housewives' sashayed down the runway in what had to be the zaniest show of the season. Every look was super-glam and very camp for the marriage equality themed collection. And you can't miss the "Prenup" rhinestone necklaces that many of the models wore ... they were fabulous!
