I love it. My favorite collection today. A bit referential (Balenciaga and Rochas especially), but still great. Very chic and some great shapes.

Who is he and why have I never heard of him? Is this his first time showing in NYC?

^he's been showing for quite a few seasons actually. I believe since 2008 or 2009

this is absolutely beautiful, and I agree the best collection of the day

It's pretty much all evening wear. Maybe the best collection of the ... er... night?

here's the style.com review...

Quote:
NEW YORK, February 9, 2012

By Brittany Adams

Resort was a game changer for Juan Carlos Obando, whose shockingly bright silk dresses—much like the "Miami" pink one Viola Davis wore earlier this week at the Academy Awards Nominations Luncheon—nearly sold out at Barneys across the country. "It's nice to have your bread and butter find you," said Obando in reference to his successful electric color palette. The designer has capitalized on the moment and started selling Fall in L.A. before today's show in order to accommodate the ongoing awards season. This move seems to have worked out, as today's finale number has reportedly been tapped for the Oscars.

Naturally, those blockbuster brights showed up on the runway, but they shared space with more experimental pieces. These were inspired by motocross daredevils in the arid Salton Sea area of California, who rage to the Chemical Brothers while riding out over the dunes, and "combine the natural with the artificial," according to Obando. The designer aimed to re-create that balance here with a brocade skirtsuit etched in neon lime on a sand-colored background, as well as brocade wrap skirts and biker jackets. On another synthetic note, Obando created faux pieces like a full-on "mink" coat that looked like real fur and will set you back a comparatively reasonable $1,200. Other looks ventured too far into the test kitchen, with melted industrial Swarovski paillettes and shredded tulle. But overall, this lineup was a step forward for Obando. He beamed, "I feel like I'm riding a wave right now." Surf's up, JC.
Side note - I think when Viola Davis wore one of his dresses the other day that it was the best she's ever looked: http://www.thefashionspot.com/celebr...ook-of-the-day
