FBW Welcomes Lorenzo Laroc!

Fashion & Beauty Week is proud to welcome Lorenzo Laroc as the entertainer for our runway gala event.  Lorenzo is a native New York electric violinist, composer, and arranger.  He began playing the violin at the age of eight, and though he was classically trained, he now plays a diverse gamut of styles, including jazz, rock and Latin music.  Lorenzo uses his signature trademark, a custom made five string plexi-glass electric violin/viola.  The intensity and passion which Lorenzo plays his instrument expresses not only his musical versatility, but also his deep love and commitment for what he does.  He hopes to bring the electric violin to a popular audience and touch the hearts of listeners worldwide.MVI_7067.MOV.Still001[1]

FBW 2013 Designer: JS Collections

Next in our designer line up are the vibrant styles of JS Collections!

Inspired by the glamour of Hollywood, JS Collections creates gowns, cocktail dresses and separates for social occasions, red carpet galas, special events or a night out on the town. Having launched in New York over 18 years ago, JS Collections has made their mark in the eveningwear category as a collection of affordable luxury. Utilizing original artwork, one of a kind prints and unique treatments, JS Collections prides itself on providing women of all ages with fashion forward designs that combine elegant, glamour and sophistication.

Henry Picado is the creative Director for JS collections. Growing up in Costa Rica, Henry  was immersed in the vibrant and colorful culture and architecture of the region; a region which continues to inspire his designs for JS Collections. Henry’s interest in fashion sparked when he was just a child. He watched his grandmother create dress patters out of newspaper and turn them into beautiful garments. At the age of 12 he designed and sewed his first outfit, which was a pant suit for his mom. Henry continued to design clothes for his friends and family throughout school and was an active participant in his school’s fashion designer competitions. With the encouragement of his family, Henry emigrated from Costa Rica to New York City to start his life as a designer. After completing his studies at the Fashion Institute of Technology, Henry began his career designing three lines for the House of Mackie:  Bob Mackie Evening, B’Zar, and Vesper.

In March 2002, he was offered an opportunity to launch an evening collection for Demetrios Int, which grew into three divisions; couture, Mother of the Bride and separates.  Four years later, in November 2006, Henry accepted a position at Aidan Mattox, where under his direction, the business quadrupled and grew to an international level. In August 2011, Picado was hired by JS Collections to revamp the image of the brand and appeal to a more fashion forward customer. He continues to infuse his colorful Costa Rican upbringing into his designs and strives to make every woman who wears his designs feel like a celebrity walking onto the red carpet. Throughout the course of his career, Picado’s designs have garnered a strong following among celebrities including Lauren Conrad, Stephanie Pratt, Anna Lynn McCord, Carrie Ann Inaba, Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, Soledad O’Brien, and Dayana Mendoza (Miss Universe 2008).

Known for exceptional quality, attention to detail and value, JS Collections can be found in over 500 discerning department and fine specialty stores across the world.
