NEW YORK, Jan. 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ On January 10, 2018, PUNTO Space will present a New York Fashion Week (NYFW) fall collection preview featuring designer Cesar Galindo and a teaser from Carlton Jones’ capsule. The trilevel raw space will welcome guests to its Main Floor for refreshments and a front row experience for Galindo’s latest looks before they officially hit the runway. The Mezzanine will host a beauty bar with cocktails, makeup touch-ups, manicures and a braid bar. The Lower Level will host an open set photo shoot, further immersing guests into a closer look of models being photographed in Galindo and Jones’ styles that are fresh from the design studio before NYFW 2018 officially begins.
Galindo, who launched his first collection in the late 1980s, is a returning designer to PUNTO.

As a contract designer, he has worked with brands that include Dolce and Gabbana. From Madonna to Missy Elliot, Calvin Klein Women’s Collection to LAMB by Gwen Stephanie, Galindo has designed and produced couture looks for the famed brand’s celebrity clients.
Designer and fashion persona Jones launched his resort-inspired collection “Carlton Jones” in 2015. Jones’ inspiration came from world travel and working as a celebrity stylist with such A-list industry giants such as Halle Berry, Alicia Keys, Erykah Badu and First Lady Michelle Obama. Returning to Punto after his NYFW debut on the Ready to Wear calendar last September; Jones will premier select styles from his first A/W capsule in a photo shoot with veteran fashion photographer Christopher Kolk. Here Carlton will direct his fall preview utilizing his experience working as Fashion Director, Editor and stylist with such prevalent magazines as Italian Vogue, GQ, French Glamour, and Harper’s Bazaar.
