Last June, DFW Style Daily introduced Richard Eric Renteria’s Etiquette Vintage Designs. New to the Metroplex at that time, we quickly fell in love with the Amarillo native’s varsity cardigans, dresses, swimwear, and more. Named for the minutia of fine behavior – a gentleman’s handshake, a door opened for a lady – his sportswear separates evoked classic American campus life in the ‘30s, ‘40s, and ‘50s.
As we kick off 2013, Renteria’s star is rising fast.
With a big congratulations, we are proud to announce today that Etiquette Vintage Designs will show at New York Fashion Week on Saturday, February 9th.
“I was initially overwhelmed with mixed emotions,” the designer (pictured above) reports of his reaction to the news. “On one hand, I felt a new pressure to come up with great pieces to show. And, on the other hand, I knew I wanted to have fun with the experience.”
Arranged by producer Wayne Shields, the show will take place at The W Hotel, Times Square. Some 20-plus new designs will be presented, and Renteria has a few surprises in store.
He hints, “We’re definitely looking to expand our palette a bit in the coming year.” Not only will his NYFW show include the mid-century prep looks he is known for, but the 1920’s will inspire additional debuts.
It goes without saying that DFW Style Daily will be on the scene to cheer Etiquette Vintage Designs at Fashion Week. We’ll report back with full coverage and photos after the show. For those wishing to make the trip, contact firstname.lastname@example.org with ticket inquiries.
Kudos to you, Eric, from all of us at DFW Style Daily!
