Castro placed an additional flag on the Israeli Fashion map, when it exposed its Autumn-Winter Collection 2014-15 in an amazingly beautiful display.
Castro's experienced model, Gal Gadot, was not present on the exhibition lane due to previous commitments in Hollywood. The exhibit opened with the model Liraz Dror, and the men collection was led by Omer Dror. It was an aesthetic feast reflecting on all senses.
Castro is Israel's response to world fashion. In its designs, it displays love and respect for its customers by fashion, quality and design; while stressing out Israel's special way of life. When Castro build a new collection and design new models, they don't compromise for Israel's lifestyle, favorite outfits for work and recreation, favorite colors, comfortable and updated dressing patterns.
The solution for Castro's customers, is expressed in three main lines:
· Red line - casual and young-age fashion for high school and university students.
· Black line - sophisticated and elegant line for people in the career world.
· Blue line - Jeans line in different patterns that upgrade the body look.
Moreover, if this is not enough, there are complementary collections, from shoes to bags, passing through inner clothing, eye-glasses, jewelry, and even bicycles and accessories; this, along with Castro's children line. The variety and richness of the collections, enables Castro to accompany its customers during the day and in the evening, during vacation and at work, from student to carrier outfits, in the small moments and grand events.
The inspiration for the exhibit lane collection selected this season, by Castro's fashion designers, is a combination of eastern and western cultures, while integrating their own point of view. The astonishing textiles used in the collection design derived from near and far places (such as Turkey, India and China), but the design is carried out in Castro's studio in Israel.
In the women collection, the designers chose to create a winning combination: ethnic, oriental and bohemian look, with a modern and sportive touch. The patterns are based on traditional and basic lines, such as rectangles and squares, kimonos, binding technique, envelopes, and square sleeves combined with flowered prints, oriental elements combined with embroidery in cloth. The collection coloring includes caramel, olive and mustard, combined with patterns, with a look that varies from oriental to kaleidoscope and stained glass.
In the men collection, the shapes, textures and materials, are based on the Levant world of concepts. Coloring varies from marine blue and petrol to shades of Boudreaux, olive green and mustard, combined with textures, and black with stone, with touches of white. For the silhouettes, classical and oriental shapes were used, such as "basic work kimono"; these become updated items using a variety of lengths and shades, which creates a western interpretation to oriental clothing and vice versa.
Castro designers learn their lessons and reach conclusions. Following the success achieved by their exhibit lane collection in the summer, they enlarged their unique collection, which is manufactured in limited editions.
How about acquisition possibilities?
Immediately after the fashion show, most of the exhibit lane collection is provided for online acquisition in Castro's website, and it is also displayed for sale in Castro's main store in Tel Aviv and its store in Ramat Aviv. The exhibition lane collection is sold online in the website using a new, friendly and easy-to-use technology, which enables quick viewing and acquisition of each item, while viewing the exhibit video.
Congratulations to Castro, pride of Israel, for the continued renewal, and for leading the world fashion adapted to its customer needs, in all kinds of fashion and lifestyle, while keeping fair prices.
