NYFW Greenshows: Luis Valenzuela's Wearable Sculptures


Luis Valenzuela is both a fashion designer and a visual artist, and it shows in his creative use of eco fabrics (incorporating new types of unrefined silks) paired with sculptural and draped silhouettes.

The dresses here were shown at the Greenshows as part of New York Fashion week.


Wearable art indeed.
