"The Cuban culture, people think it's very macho but it's actually all about the appreciation of women. That's the yin and yang- the macho and the appreciation of women"~Ruben Toledo
Narciso Rodriguez's 2009 line proves to be a line that speaks to women from many different cultures and who come from all types of backgrounds. Slipping into a Narciso Rodriguez dress, a woman automatically transforms into a classic but modern, elegant but fierce very feminine creature whose purpose in life is to make men swoon, without even trying. Rodriguez's knowledge of definition, sculpture and a woman's form is very evident in his 2009 line shown below.
