Candela is an eclectic line of finely edited pieces by lead designer Gabriella Perezutti. The Uruguayan beauty, and former model, has always been a lover of fashion and after working at a major showroom she decided to branch out and launch Candela in 2004. Fusing her equestrian background with chic urban styles, she infuses each of her pieces with unique elements, fun prints, sequins and rich color.
The Icon Concierge was fortunate enough to interview Ms. Candela backstage before the show and get some up close shots of her beauty team prepping her models.
Ms. Perezutti’s collection was gorgeous showcasing easily wearable and functional pieces mixed in with high-drama sequins and bold colors. The models sported naturally wavy and braided hair that was sometimes adorned with flowers, along with plum lips and rosy cheeks for make-up. Candela also has a full footwear line that was presented during her show along the wooden beams that supported her romantic and whimsically themed presentation.
