Who: Richard Seco Spring 2015 Collection
Where: 7 World Trade Center, NYC
Overall: When I arrived at 7 World Trade Center for the Richard Seco show there was a video of a group of women in Mexico doing all hand weaving designs with seed beads. It’s a humanizing experience watching the diligence and precision that these women do on a daily basis just for us to wear an embellishment on our clothes. As the show began and the models came out in perforated leather in the form of a dress or jumpsuit however there were seed bead embellishments either on a necklace, to a guitar or on a New Balance sneaker. Richard wanted us to be aware that even though we love to watch these clothes on the runway, it's important to know that designing is a craft that takes time and skills. Also, these women in the Wixárika community doing the hand beading need to have some recognition as well. Here’s what designer Richard Seco had to say about his “Dreams” collection,
“My collection DREAMS is a collaboration with the Wixárika, an indigenous community from Mexico, who are known for their beading. As they create each beaded piece they put their dreams into their work. With these pieces and the World Trade Center venue I made a collection for future dreams and the next generation that will live and work here. This collection and its venue are standing for the generation of future dreamers to come." - Ricardo Seco
