Fashion Week continued for yours’ truly as I got a glimpse at Mexican Designer Rolando Santana’s designs for Fall 2013!
Favored by the likes of Dania Ramirez and Emmanuelle Chriqui (of Entourage fame) Rolando eschews the skimpy fare for looks that encompass the total woman. From career maven to stay at home mon, Satana blends tough and feminine appeal into his collection to make a look that is all you.
Rolando explained his inspiration to NBC Latino:
“I design for a woman who is unafraid of pursuing her goals and wants beautiful clothes to wear during that journey,” explains Santana, who insists on creating designs and patterns for petite women and plus-sizes – not just sample-sized models. “The woman who wears my clothing might be a lawyer, business woman, doctor, or stay-at-home mom – but she always makes a presence because of her confidence.”
I instantly fell in love with the entire line! As each look passed me by all I could think was how perfectly the designs matched the theme of Scandal-tough but feminine and vulnerable. His looks had layers-and that perfectly describes the many faces of the modern woman. I can’t wait to shop the looks in the fall!

Of course, the pageant girl in me found the titleholder in the crowd! I bumped into Ebony, Miss Pennsylvania Teen USA 2013 and snapped a quick pic (she is sooooo tall!):
