Andres Aquino’s new collection is inspired by the sights and sounds of New York City - from the rumbling subways to the glitz of Broadway. The dynamic energy of the buzzing metropolis has long served as a driving force for countless creative minds, each responding to the inspiration in his or her own unique way. Mr. Aquino also hears the creative call of the city that never sleeps. The fusion of cultures, music and people; the myriad sights, sounds and rhythms of street and subway music from congas to violins, from break dancers to accordionists, from the haunting tones of South American Indian flutes to the social commentary of rappers; from the man dancing merengue with a life size doll to the street preachers and the "Naked Cowboy"; from the screaming sirens of fire trucks to the blinding brilliance of Times Square - and so much more. It all serves as creative inspiration.

Andres Aquino recently received the “Style Fashion Leader & Inspiration Award” from SUNY Westchester Community College, and has been dubbed the "Urban Renaissance Man" by Latino Future magazine. The New York-based designer, poet and producer has been featured in numerous publications and TV programs in Italy, Russia, Dubai, China, Romania, the Dominican Republic, India and other countries. His designs have been seen in Collezioni Haute Couture, Book Moda, NTDTV, Bond, Moda, Arabian Business, World News and many more.
