This season Angel Sánchez gave me a gift. What was it? The gift of a photographers’ angel. I caught a glimpse of the models backstage as well as an understandably nervous Angel peeking out from behind the partition looking into the crowd. Of course you don’t expect a man who has created countless collections would still get nervous but I think it simply shows his humility and charm. Angel Sánchez is a designer who is passionate about his designs, a superstar in the industry yet extremely humble and modest.
So who is the Angel Sánchez bride? She is confident in her own skin. She loves being a woman and her femininity shows in everything she wears. Most importantly, she is a woman who wears the dress, not the other way around.
Modified ball gowns and trumpet skirts with detailed accents ruled the collection. The banded skirt and a beautiful keyhole neckline is my personal favorite. Angel spoke at an event just two nights prior and wondered aloud what the reaction of this collection would be. I can say, at least for me…Perfection.
