Yves Castaldi Springs Down the LA Fashion Week Catwalk

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - October 4, 2007) - YVES CASTALDI, always in the forefront, will be one of the first designers to open LA Fashion Week this year, showing his Spring 2008 collection on Sunday, October 14th at 7pm. Expect to see a unique commingling of fine tailoring, denim, and luxurious fabrics, and, voila, couture, with an extreme attention to detail, even some details that are not readily seen. "Colour is the drama that comes from the black and the white, my hues for spring 2008," says Castaldi.

Castaldi, who has been designing in Europe for over thirty years and has been here for five years, is known for his ability to alchemize disparate fabrics, such as denim and silk, into couture.

His internationally distributed collection is mysteriously sexy. The Senior Fashion Editor for Fashion Vampire Magazine has said, "We should expect him to totally turn this fashion week on its ear, if you will, because he is a man of exquisite theatrics. I am sure he will turn the catwalk into a synergy of magic and vigor, an event the celebrities, journalists, and we mere mortals attending will remember for a long time." (Please see his article in, and view the photos of his designs in the photo gallery there as well).

"Maestro Castaldi sent me a sketch from his spring line and I am amazed at his execution of ideas, by his mastery of the cloth," said Faith Boutin, Senior Fashion Editor of Fashion Vampire Magazine. "He just does everything so effortlessly."

Castaldi, who is celebrated for his endless passion and constant persistence to reinvent, has clothed actress Bai Ling, executive Kimberly Moore of Echelon, Inc., actress Shell Z, actress Tara Reid, Catt Sadler, and Baroness Victoria von Kap-herr.

Castaldi says, "I never look back, only ahead."
