“Project Runway” Season 7 Designer Jesus Estrada was the buzz of hometown San Diego on Thursday, January 14 as he hosted a fashion show party during the show’s premiere at Red Circle in the Gaslamp Quarter.
The Who’s Who of San Diego’s fashion community enjoyed tray passed appetizers and cocktails while mingling amid beats by local DJs before the fashion show stole our attention at 9pm.
This 21-year-old designer and “Project Runway” contestant was born in Mexico and raised in San Diego, where he attended Clairemont High School before graduating on to Fashion Careers College. Estrada still currently lives in San Diego, shares studio space with fellow “Project Runway” designer Gordana Gehlhausen (Season 6) and will soon sell his must-have items out of her downtown San Diego boutique GOGA by Gordana.
How Jesus Estrada will do in the “Project Runway” Season 7 competition is still unknown, but one thing is for sure, his latest collection was a hit during the premiere fashion show at Red Circle on Thursday, January 14.
Estrada describes his design style as modern with a punk-twist.
New Estrada trends for your radar include dark shades with gothic undertones, bold textures, studs and sheer embellishments, hat-pin accessories, and dramatic high-waist belts.
