A Look at Designer Cesar Galindo

Staci and Anika recently had the honor of co-hosting a trunk show for former Houstonian, designer Cesar Galindo at one of Houston's best curated luxury lifestyle storefronts, Sloan/Hall.

For those unfamiliar with Cesar's work, he began his career designing costumes for the Miami City Ballet and Houston Grand Opera, before making his way to the big time, working on his own collection while also working for known fashion houses such as Dolce & Gabbana, Calvin Klein Collection, and L.A.M.B.

We love his clothing so much that we flew to Fall 2016's NYFW for a showcase of Cesar's designs along with handbag designer, Beth Purpich.

The youngest of 11 children, Cesar is a first generation Mexican/American who also grew up as the only gay sibling. It certainly taught him to overcome adversity at an early age. And in proof that men can also be Socially Conscious Fashionistas, Cesar mentions that his favorite charities include AIDS Foundation (Houston AND NYC), any charities that raise funds for cancer research and children's causes... and he can be found volunteering at Housing Works.

Here are some of our favorite looks and friends who popped in to say hello at the trunk show. We are currently planning a NYFW excursion for the Cesar x Beth Texas Takeover show, September 9, 2018. To join in the fun, contact Anika at anika@philanthropicfetes.com.
