Eduardo Lucero

Eduardo LuceroEduardo LuceroEduardo LuceroEduardo Lucero

 

Among fashionistas, Los Angeles designer Eduardo Lucero ('87) is a red carpet favorite, stemming in part from his celebration of the sensual Latin-American culture of his origins.

At his shop on Beverly Boulevard, Lucero crafts lovely, flattering, personalized couture gowns. In the front, the shop displays a rotating selection from the season's collection. In the back is Lucero's studio, complete with cutting tables, mannequins, glossy satins and exquisite deep velvets. His specialty: decidedly feminine evening wear. Burnout velvet halters and long, bias-cut skirts drape incredibly smoothly, and suits hug without strangling bodies.
The body that fits into these clothes needn't be emaciated - Lucero designs for unabashedly curvaceous women.

Over the years, Lucero has been involved with numerous runway shows and gala events. He presented new work during "Fashion Week in L.A." And his tie-dyed gown design set a glamorous tone at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Smashbox Studios in Culver City. Gen Art Chicago, a leader in showcasing the newest emerging talent in fashion and art, held their 2nd annual Fresh Faces in Fashion runway show, which included Lucero along with the hottest new designers from Chicago, New York and Los Angeles in womenswear and accessories. Lucerno also won the Asia Pacific Young Fashion Designers Show in Hong Kong.
