With 30 womenswear looks and 6 menswear look, the fashion show was closed by Naomi Campbell and presented an exquisite collection of unique garments which fully represented the designer’s signature asymmetric approach, mixing Latin sensuality with ethnic techniques to deliver his cosmopolitan aesthetic. There were eclectic combinations, fusing items from his eponymous luxury brand with pieces from his mass market collection for Seven Seven, presented in Colombia at the end of December,  giving form to an impeccable result.

Cortázar announced he would temporarily leave the Paris catwalk during the Autumn Winter 2019 season, to host a private presentation in his showroom instead as he focused on other projects beyond fashion week.

Last year, the designer launched two collections in Colombia in collaboration with local retailer Seven Seven and consulting firm Creo Consulting, presenting over 50 styles, two pop-up shops and several art projects. Nigeria’s fashion week, Arise Fashion, was held in Lagos from 19-22 April. It hosted over 25 catwalk shows over three days.
