Review from Style.com:

Quote:
NEW YORK, February 2, 2008 – Juan Carlos Obando, a Los Angeles-based Colombian who is an art director by day and designer by night, came east this season, bringing his eighth collection, intriguingly titled "Liz Goldwyn vs. Frank Miller." "I wanted to show in the shadow of the Empire State Building," the designer said. "It was time for the main stage."

Obando had painstakingly hand-sewn each of the 14 looks on view today himself. They included a sheared purple coat made from 120 yards of silk chiffon, as well as simple-looking yet ingeniously constructed goddess dresses, which are something of a specialty for the designer. As for his inspiration—the invite featured the L.A. fashion figure Goldwyn as if drawn by a graphic artist like Miller—Obando didn't take it too literally. "It's separate from the execution," he said. "The superhero is woman." If our powers of prediction are right, the designer is set for further adventures in Gotham.

– Laird Borrelli-Persson

The first outfit reminds me of Burberry.

I quite ike this actually, it's tough looking, but it's still got fluidity to it.

Plus, it stands out among the countless bland, uninteresting, trend-focused young NY designers.
