RAFAEL CENNAMO's Opulent Vacation Inspired Resort 2014 Preview

Visiting the Rafael Cennamo showroom was everything I imagined it would be and more. A sea of couture gowns for Resort 2014 collection hung delicately in his beautifully decorated showroom. Taking a closer look I was mesmerized by the amount of detail that went into each piece. Rafael meticulously applied every precious stone, sequin and jewel like an artist would paint a picture with each stroke of a brush.

Rafael’s inspiration for Resort 2014 was based around a luxury vacation; think coral, beaches, sand and water. It’s all about the magical escape into a luxurious abyss. The statement colors for Resort 2014 were coral and vibrant fuchsia.

One of my favorite gowns was the above beautiful goddess like piece. 
The draping was constructed in a way that would perfectly envelop a women’s body and bring out her best assets. I loved the transitioning shades of color which created the popular ombre effect.


Rafael Cennamo is recognized for its elegance, originality and creativity. He uses  bold colors, luxurious fabrics and edgy structures to bring a new twist to high fashion. As a young designer, Rafael Cennamo has captured the attention of many prominent celebrities and the social scene including Anne Hathaway, Katy Perry, Kerry Washington, Taylor Swift, Rihanna, Beyonce and Carrie Underwood.

Rafael’s unique heritage of Italian and Venezuelan culture has provided him with a distinctive approach to luxury eveningwear. His ability to juxtapose overstated couturier-style sense of fashion with effortless sophistication continues to be showcased in New York’s Mercedes-Benz Fashion Weeks which has garnered the attention of respected fashion magazines including Vogue, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, InStyle, Marie Claire and WWD.

Currently, Rafael's collections can be found at Bergdorf Goodman and select Neiman Marcus  stores as well as at high-end retailers internationally, including Harrods and Harvey Nichols.
