Raul Lopez, Dominican Republic and New York based designer presented “Rayo Esquisito” through his label “LUAR ZEPOL” this passed Wednesday during New York Fashion Week for this Fall/Winter. The collection was the truly dark and grimy vibe I had been looking for this fashion week. Cyber! Cyber! Cyber! Ha. Raul is such a conceptual artist and designer, I absolutely love his being. The wired head pieces with the transparent tape made into braided masterpieces — so awesome. My favorite pieces were most definitely the strapped leg warmers and the outerwear. Oh yeah, did I mention Gatekeeper provided the tunes?! Oh yes.
