This year Uptown Fashion Week took place at the United Palace; a venue rich with style and history. The eclectic mixture of emerging and established fashion designers helped foster a nurturing, creative event.
Originally from Lima, Peru, Augustro Manzanares moved to New York in 2005 to realize his dream and passion for fashion and design. With a creative personality since he was very young, everything he creates has an eclectic mix of influences from his Latin background and his love for High Fashion. Starting as a child designing clothing for Barbie dolls, he has concentrated the last 10 years in women’s-wear designs and has elevated to become Assistant Designer for the design duo The Blonds. It was with this opportunity that he has made a name for himself in the NY fashion scene and decided to take his career to the next level at Uptown Fashion Week. His pieces can be found exclusively at Patricia Field in NY and include dresses, corsets, masks, and headpieces.
