Fashion Week El Paseo™ 2017
FIDM Designer Duston Jasso

Duston Jasso
FIDM/ Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising

Duston Jasso was born and raised in Lakewood, California — only a hop, skip, and a jump from the edge of the continent. Maybe that's why he called his collection "Aquatic Flux," which tells the story of liquid transforming into solid, representing personal growth. Jasso finds inspiration in oceans, mermaids, and the continuous, fluid movement of waves. His sophisticated work relies on draped charmeuse, as well as more structured garments, and his strategic use of pearls becomes more noticeable as the collection progresses. After graduating from FIDM, Jasso hopes to build his own New York–based fashion house.
