Until some months ago, Merlin Castell had refused to enter such a competitive field as women's fashion. Nevertheless, after several years he came to the realization that focusing all his ingenuity on men's clothing was not as profitable as the world of women's fashion.

"Although my clothing was for men, women were the ones buying it. It was amazing, so I had to get into that kind of heavy competition," states the Honduran born designer. Some months ago, Castell, who has managed to get out his Merlin Castell line of luxury garments, began designing clothing for women using a different concept: functionality. He says that all his work is based on this idea because women today are dynamic, practical and thrifty.

Castell's designs are not limited to the garments themselves, but rather have a use that goes beyond the aesthetic. He transforms a dress into two different garments. The pants have the function of highlighting or hiding a woman's hips, for example.

The fashion magician always impresses with his creations, which truly are works of art. On this occasion, the versatile and intrepid designer gives women the option of buying a single dress. It enhances her beauty and at the same time helps her to economize. But most importantly, the style will not go out of fashion, it can be worn in any season and fulfills various requirements of today's woman.

In spring, Castell will launch his new clothing line which includes a dress that can just as easily be used for a formal dinner or turned into an elegant garment for a cocktail party.

"I didn't think it would be so popular, but the reality is precisely the opposite," he states.

The designer Merlin Castell has launched Day-Evening Wear, a garment that combines a short cocktail dress and a classic elegant cut for the evening.

The fabulous Day-Evening Wear collection, by the designer Merlin Castell, is made from silk because, as Castell maintains, the material caresses the women's skin and hangs elegantly, enhancing her curves. This diverse Evening Wear collection is daring, bold, sensual and elegant... The little black dress with embroidered patterns in the same material, strapless with simple lines and a classic open skirt is the main characteristic of the new glamour queens. The collection has many pieces, all with different necklines, but all with a convertible skirt; a practical and original dress.

The fabulous genuine designs can be combined with elegant accessories, shawls, bags, pumps... to create an extremely elegant look and add extra layers of style to this staple garment. The best buy of the century: original, practical... fabulous. The beautiful designs of this superb maestro of haute couture aim to bring out the beauty of today's woman: intrepid, intelligent, bold, and beautiful. Swathed in textures, colors and patterns, Merlin lets his imagination and creativity fly to achieve what he wants.

Immersed in his creative empire, his unique garments in a variety of different styles reveal his versatility, always with that magical touch of Merlin Castell.
