MULTIDISCIPLINARY ART BY CAMILO ALVAREZ
Camilo Alvarez develops his art through colors and geometric cuts taken from other disciplines such as architecture. All this was reflected in his presentation during COLOMBIAMODA 2014.
It is very interesting to note that with a palette of colors not so colorful you can achieve a level of combinations of casually clothes with high tones of chic.
Camilo talked with Julio Melara, editor COSMOPOL MAGAZINE about his recent catwalk and other projects.
