The new designer has made a “buzz” fairly quickly in Bolivian fashion industry and now is ready to take his designs up to the next level—the global market.

“I bring a new, fresh, joyful, fun and unselfconscious vibe to casual wear. My designs are commercial and wearable but not your run of the mill mainstream.” —Gustavo Garcia

Garcia’s AFWNY 2012 debut is inspired by unwinding into a warm blue sky with colorful kites and hot air balloons at sight.
