Angel Sanchez is best known for his knock- out evening dresses and beautiful bridal gown collections. His collection was light and colorful, filled with stylish dresses and separates perfect for day to evening social occasions and balmy summer nights.
The inspiration and color palette of the collection was light and the colors in the sky. Light blue, pink, yellow, and white were the dominant colors in the collection, along with exotic floral prints. Sanchez chose a gorgeous double-faced canvas in pink that resembled Radiant Orchid, the 2014 color of the year from Pantone. Bright yellow piping on seams and unusual closures accentuated solid color garments. Unexpected cutouts, piping, and embroidery added texture and versatility to the garments and the collection.
With so many standouts in this collection, I found it challenging to choose my favorites. There was the three piece outfit of pink Faille coat, bandeau top, and double faced canvas shorts. I loved the crepe gown, in a bright citron color, with cutouts and high front slits. One of Sanchez's signature evening gowns; an embroidered organza gown with piping in citron yellow was stunning.

There was a lot of wearable tech at NY Fashion Week this season, with technology disguised in accessories. At this show, the fashion accessories looked like tech components. The bright neon citron color was seen in sculptured necklaces and bracelet cuffs. The tech fabric of neoprene was also integrated into more classically tailored evening wear.
Angel Sanchez does it again and delivers a wearable collection of feminine & elegant clothes...perfect for the modern woman.
Gracias por la increíble colección de Sr. Sanchez!
