To speak of Willy Chavarria and the message behind his brand could take me a couple of pages. All I can say about him are words of admiration, LOVE and respect.

For his SS20 collection THE LOVE GARAGE, named after an early 90’s club he frequented in SF, I created two different looks. I complemented the main collection, which featured a Chicano chic minimalist silhouette, with settled and realistic looking scars—those that you would see in films about bad guys you’d want to sleep with. For the second part of the show, a collaboration with California brand K- Swiss, which featured a street cast, I gave the models cherubim-like rosy cheeks that made those candy neon-colored sweatshirts pop.
