Sanchez's Style

Touted as one of the "best of the best" at the Art Hearts LA Fashion week, Gregorio Sanchez, displayed an incredible array of women's fashion. His style caught the eye of fellow designers and viewers alike. Gregorio Sanchez's line included vibrant colors, and some hands embroidered, provocative pieces, like lace and transparent blouses. Many of the models wearing the transparent blouses shed their bras to add to the sex appeal. To complement the blouses, the models wore tall stilettos (7 inches) and a beautifully crafted pompadour hairstyle to match the sexy, elegant clothing.

Some viewers described Gregorio Sanchez's line as "energetic and fun." In contrast with the brilliant colors, Sanchez included other patterns of checkered black and white to make the vibrant colors pop. Many of the dresses displayed floral styled patterns and jewels. Sanchez also included sequins and other Spanish styled designs that were emphasized by floor length capes, colorful belts, and some other earrings that embellished the models' look. Gregorio's line reflected a Hispanic style but also had inspiration from the styles of India and Bali, thus, the wide selection of shining colors and stunningly ornate accessories. Some writers described this montage of colors and style as something that may be seen in Cuba.
