De Villacis opened the show with a fairy tale princess dress designed for Carrie Underwood and featuring in the music video of the Disney film "Enchanted." The magical piece captivated the audience for its unique aesthetic and originality.






A total of twenty one fabulous gowns, ranging from cocktails to evenings were showcased in his exclusive first apparence in San Francisco. Roberto De Villacis, known for creating haute-couture as wearable art, charmed the attendees with each one of a kind piece.

Models: Leah, Quinn and Rachel

His designs evoke some of Le Bella Epoque feeling....the intricacy of the beading, chiffon layers, embellished corsets with Victorian bustlines. Roberto De Villacis complements this detail with exquisite, sumptuous fabrics in these exclusive, custom fitted creations. The results charmed us all. They were absolutely ethereal!!!

Roberto De Villacis with a Model

I just recently met LA-based fashion designer Roberto De Villacis (RDV) at the famed Hollywood mansion Hacienda St. Pierre, built in 1929 by Al Jolson, the first mega star of the twentieth century. Here RDV hosted a VIP reception to welcome his guests and to show his fabulous collection

His Beautiful Design

Roberto De Villacis, originally from Ecuador, was first discovered by Karl Lagerfield in Paris upon graduating from the illustrious design school, Studio Bercot. His design philosophy is Le Divine in Design rooted in his South America heritage and Europe's legacy of luxury and savoir-faire.

His philosophy is translated wondefully into the beautiful haute couture pieces he creates. He is not just a designer but a fine artist whose works of wearable art have been photographed by the legendary Helmut Newton, Ellen Von Unwerth, Steven Miesel and been featured in Vanity Fair, Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, W and Elle. He has consulted for the iconic luxury houses Missoni and Anna Molinari and directed fashion campaigns creating the slogans "Believe in Beauty" for Lancome and "The Poetry of Science" for L'Oreal.

His "to die for" designs continue to rise as does his couture clientele, including mega stars, aristocrats and A-listers. Penelope Cruz, Kirsten Dunst, and supermodels Kate Moss and Verushka have showcased his original designs for events ranging from red carpet premieres and photo shoots to charity events.

RDV will be visiting San Francisco on July 26th. A showcase/fashion show will be presented at
the starlight room from 4pm to 6pm. So San Franciscans get ready to view the art of work and craftmanship that RDV champions in his world of fashion art!!!!
