Isabel Toledo debuts 2012 Collection during Vanidades "Magia de la Moda" Fashion Show

Isabel Toledo, a Cuban-American designer, has been in the fashion industry for over 25 years and she is most recognized for designing the lemongrass dress and matching coat First Lady Michelle Obama wore on Inauguration Day in 2009. Isabel and her husband, Ruben Toledo, were in Miami last week to debut their Spring-Summer 2012 collection during this year's Funkshion Fashion Week. The couple showcased their latest designs at the 6th annual Vanidades ‘Magia de la Moda’ fashion event on Wednesday, October 19th. This was an incredibly impressive show sponsored by Pantene and Covergirl. I loved the Caribbean flare, the vibrant colors and the hats were distinctively creative! Prior to the runway show, Fashion Group International honored Isabel & Ruben Toledo with a Lifetime Achievement Award. Isabel (pictured on the right along with Ruben) launched her line in 1985 and was immediately celebrated internationally as a designer of rare and unique talent among the avant-garde fashion circles. Her collaboration with her husband and alter ego, artist Ruben Toledo, is unique in the history of fashion. Together, Isabel and Ruben represent the dynamic chemistry and fusion that exists between art and fashion. A big thanks to Alexander Tamargo from ALTA Images for all of the fabulous runway pictures on this post (above & below). Enjoy!
