Andrae Gonzalo ties up with eveningwear label Mikael Aghal
Feb '12
Mikael Aghal expands its senior design team in a new collaboration with Andrae Gonzalo of Project Runway Fame. Selected styles by Gonzalo will preview as part of Mikael Aghal's offerings for Fall 2012, at ENK's Fashion Coterie, February 21-23, booth 800.

Gonzalo has diversified his creative projects since participating in the “Santino” season of Bravo's fashion reality show. He launched the eveningwear line After Eight for Los Angeles label Single, has had his fashion illustrations published & designed costumes for numerous dance & theater companies. He's also provided on-camera fashion commentary for the Style Network & Mylifetime.com. The Hollywood Standard Hotel even commissioned a visual art installation by Gonzalo for their 2011 holiday shopping season.

Gonzalo's contributions to the Mikael Aghal line are elegant & glamorous, each having an individual narrative & theatrical sensibility. Gonzalo jokes that, "If all the world's a stage, then you'd better think about what you're wearing before you leave the wings". Multiple layers of chiffon suggest, "I'm whimsical, but delicately confident".

Sumptuously draped matte jersey says, "I'm literally well-armed, beautifully dangerous". All of them are meant to exude a sense of strength, power, pride & elegance. Despite the classical dressmaking techniques & red carpet appeal, Mikael Aghal promotes wardrobe versatility. Two wearable looks can be had for the price that other labels charge for a gown that is only worn once.

Andrae Gonzalo's trademark style catapulted him onto the fashion & celebrity scene when participating in television's Project Runway. Gonzalo studied theatre & performance at New York University's Tisch School of the Arts & holds a Bachelor's Degree in Fashion Design from Otis College of Art & Design. He has served as a member of the creative design faculty at the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising.

Gonzalo has also costumed for famed Post Modern Choreographer Rudy Perez & won a 2010 National Theatre Award for his contribution to LACHSA's production of Cats. Andrae Gonzalo continues to carve out a unique niche for himself in the worlds of fashion, theater, art & television.

Founded in 2008, Mikael Aghal brings chic, sophisticated, couture-inspired gowns to real life for the worldly, modern women at an unmatched price point. The Mikael Aghal collection is available at prestigious retail stores worldwide.
