LFW Interview With Designer Vielma

Chilean born designer Gabriel Vielma brought the party to the Designer Showrooms at LFW with his fabulous and fun SS16 collection. Read on to see which party city he took his inspiration from!


Tell me about the collection and the inspiration behind it?

Well the SS16  collection inspiration comes from Las Vegas in the 1950s/1960s, motels and the roads that lead to the city and of course getting ready and the parties in Vegas. At the presentation we had a motel room set that we prepared to look like it was the 50s/60s.


Describe the collection in three words?


Fabulous as Las Vegas!


If you could dress one celebrity who would it be and why?

I think Lana Del Rey would suit this collection perfectly.


We can't wait to get our hands on this awesome silver jacket with tiger motifs!
