Blowing into the Windy City

Since the end of 2001, the Latin explosion that burst out into the entertainment industry has remained dormant. That was until Edwing D'Angelo, New York based Fashion designer rose from the ashes.

Born and raised in Buenaventura, Colombia, he moved to New York in his teens and has work hard since to achieve his dreams of success. He open Karaz International in August of 2002 and has been going strong since. Now expanding even into wholesale, Karaz has become an instant success for D'Angelo. With designs overflowing with Latin sensuality, his innovative approach to fashion is what has best proven to be the most successful of it all. Seems as though, however, that success will be traveling.

New York City will not be the only city basking in Latin flavor. D'Angelo has his eyes set on the windy city. The 2005 expansion plan has already scheduled in Chicago, with talk to the city's Merchandise mart. D'Angelo tells us his look in winter 2004/2005.

This winter style has taken on Chicago's conservative edge. With a strong emphasis on sophistication, this season's new look is refined and tailored. Yet as always the fitted, Latin silhouette is in D'Angelo's words "totally in!" Perfection for us Chicagoans. In the mean time, D'Angelo's designs can be found at
