Designer Jhoan Sebastian Grey presented the spectacular Sebastian Grey Fall/Winter 2020 ready-to-wear collection during this February season of New York Fashion Week in partnership with the Fashion for a Cause Foundation. The Season 17 Project Runway winner unveiled the colorful “Lineage” collection in this lovely NYFW debut, which pays homage to his Colombian heritage.
A luxurious use of sheen throughout the collection gives many of the vibrant garments – done in red, turquoise, green, and dusty lilac colorways – an edgy, nearly-metallic finish. The use of texture and material gives the monochromatically-presented outfits a daring and modern finish.
“Grey’s signature style envelopes the body in precisely constructed quilted silks and hand-woven leather,” according to a post-show press release. “Born in Cali, Colombia, Sebastian Grey started working in his family’s leather business. At age 8 he enrolled in Incolballet, a fine arts school, and was inspired by his time studying ballet and observing the way costumes were constructed to handle movement.”
