PAOLA GAMERO AW 15’16 READY-TO-WEAR VANCOUVER FASHION WEEK
With very feminine and romantic designs, Paola focuses on the details.
The handmade embroidery, jewels, lace and silk are all part of the inspiration she got from her trip to Europe. These elements are designed to exalt the delicacy of women.

Paola Gamero also studied Fashion Event Planning at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York. Currently, she is specializing at Milan’s Marangoni Institute as a Fashion Stylist.
A little over a week ago I attended Vancouver Fashion Week. This season was different than all of the others I’ve been to; instead of being a participant, I was a spectator (see pictures from the last show I styled here). Although I did miss the rush, excitement, and pride of putting on a fashion show, it was nice to be able to just relax and watch a whole evening of shows. When we put on a show, we’re running around all day preparing and by the time we finish cleaning up at the end there’s usually only time to catch the last show of the evening. I only was able to attend for one night, but I think I came on a good one! There was a very diverse mix of styles on the runway: flirty 60s-inspired looks, glamorous evening gowns, Indian bridal dresses, candle-lit jewelry, and playful, sexy t-shirts. Here’s a small selection from my favourite show of the evening – Peruvian designer Paola Gamero. It was hard not to be enchanted by the decadent fabrics, colours, and textures. She mixed all of these elements perfectly to create beautiful, elegant, and ever-so-slightly provocative (sheer panelling, deep v-necks, thigh-high slits, and open backs) evening dresses. I think any woman would feel like a queen in one of these dresses!
