#AHFLA | CANDICE CUOCO SS19

Candice Cuoco’s SS19 Collection “Veronica Franco” is more than just another LAFW runway show. Named after famed Venetian Courtesan and Italian Poet, the “Veronica Franco” collection meshes modern design with historical silhouettes and metallic embellishments to create a powerful message to honor women throughout history who have had to use men’s passions for survival.

“I like hearing women refer to themselves as Queens. . . because we motherfucking are.”

Known for her edgy fashion, Project Runway Season 14 finalist, FIDM Alumni, proud mother and high-end leather designer, Candice Cuoco, continues to create sultry, seductive garments that complement the strength and beauty of a woman’s figure.

Cuoco’s SS19 collection features custom printed textiles from EPSON America, hand-painted leather by Kendell Cotta, and studs and hardware from GoldStar Tool DTLA.

Here are my favorite looks.
