So how does the New Yorker plan on topping last year's show? While he didn't reveal any secrets about Saturday night, he shared some insight as to how he got involved with GFW.
GFW: Briefly describe your line. How does Mikho Reconstructed differ from the line you showed last year, Miguel Karajito? MB: IT'S COMPLETELY DIFFERENT. FOR STARTERS THIS YEAR I'M NOT DOING A LINE OF BATHING SUITS, THE LINE IS MOSTLY READY-TO-WEAR BUT THERE MIGHT BE SOME SURPRISES…
GFW: Of course! How did you get into design? MB: MY BACKGROUND IS IN ADVERTISING AND DESIGN, BUT I'VE ALWAYS BEEN INTERESTED IN FASHION AND INTERIOR DESIGN AND TEND TO EXPLORE BOTH AREAS OF DESIGN QUITE OFTEN
GFW: What is the inspiration behind this season's collection? MB: THIS YEAR'S COLLECTION DRAWS INSPIRATION FROM HUMANITY ITSELF, WHO WE ARE TODAY AND OUR IMPACT IN OUR SURROUNDINGS. IT SPEAKS OF HUMAN BEHAVIOR: EXCESS, OVERINDULGENCE, THIRST FOR POWER, BASICALLY THE DOWNFALL OF HUMANITY.
GFW: So who's wearing Mikho?
MB: 20-30'S SOMETHING, PROFESSIONAL BUT LOOKING FOR AN URBAN ALTERNATIVE FOR CASUAL COMFORTABLE GOING OUT CLOTHES.
Catch Mikho reCONSTRUCTED on our Saturday April 9th runway.
If those studded man panties are any indication of what Blanco's cooked up, you won't want to miss this year's show!
