Haute couture fashion designer Adolfo Sanchez was gracious enough to invite us into his studio and take us through the steps of preparing a gown for the runway.  We taped the work on the gown over a couple of days.  Then we showed up on the runway to capture the model slaying the runway in Adolfo’s creation.

We hope that you enjoy seeing the process behind the making of a fashion design.   Adolfo not only shows the work that goes into the gown, but explains the inspiration behind the entire collection that hit the runway.   Entitled the Mordida Collection, you can see the full runway show here.

Sanchez has dressed some of the most famous women in the world.  Among them are Fergie, Khloe Kardashian, Tyra Banks, Kylie Jenner, Brandi, Kesha, Kat Von D, Poppy, Niki Murphy, Lia Marie Johnson, and Kat Graham.  How’s that for an A-list client list?

Sanchez is also appearing on the new Netflix series, Next in Fashion.  Hosted by Tan France (Queer Eye) and global style icon Alexa Chung, Adolfo is one of 18 designers who will be competing to be named Next in Fashion and receive the $250,000 grand prize.

The series airs January 29th on Netflix and in each episode one designer will be eliminated from the competition.  Though the winner will be named Next in Fashion, all of the designers have considerable experience in fashion design and many have been ghost designers for the big name designers.  Fashion industry heavyweights Phillip Lim, Tommy Hilfiger, Prabal Gurung and Christopher Kane pop up as guest judges throughout the series.
