Fashion Week El Paseo™ 2012
Designer Anthony Franco
Anthony Franco was born and raised in Los Angeles. At a young age, Anthony was drawn to clothing and design. He is a self-taught designer. As a child he would make his own patterns and test them out on any type of fabric he could get his hands on, this included shower curtains, draperies, and even table cloths.
His experience ranges from commercials, music videos, live stage shows, personal styling, movie design, and also showing collections of his own. In 2007 he earned the Mercedes-Benz presents Designer of the Year award, for his Fall 2007 collection.
Anthony’s inspiration comes from a variety of sources. A lot of his inspiration comes from music. Music is usually the bookends to his collections. He also loves to flip through his collection of vintage photography and fashion books. Supermodels of the 80’s and 90’s often get his creative juices flowing.
