The new collection of SAMY GI line features sophisticated and very simple designs at the same time, with a contemporary edge, inspired by the passion the designer feels for his homeland, Venezuela. The proposal has attracted much attention for its designs emphasizing cuts in the sleeves with the colors and patterns –inspiring Gicherman to name his collection ‘Pajaro de Fuego’ by capturing forms like the wings of birds in Venezuela.
With this collection Samy Gicherman shows one more time why he has always been recognized: his irreverence to the combination of colors, patterns and textures. "As a designer I always carry with me Latin flavor and color of my land. I have in my mind the smells of the forest and the inspiration of the sea,” said Gicherman. “This collection is oriented toward the woman of my dreams, the ideal woman."
"Houston Fashion Week" will be held from October 08th to 14th, 2012. Samy Gicherman will make special appearance as guest designer on October 10 at the premises of ‘The Colombed'or Hotel & Spa’ located at 3410 Montrose Boulevard in Houston, Texas.
