Pablo Fernandez, a native of Uruguay, had a two-page spread in the Spanish newspaper El Diario La Prensa who interviewed Pablo backstage before the show. They also put one of his looks on the cover of their Sunday, September 10th edition.
Pablo incorporated his fashion and knitwear design focus into an avant-garde collection inspired by the early-80s, vintage cartoons and WWI paraphernalia. Pablo was a 2004 CFDA Scholarship Award recipient. In May 2006, Pablo was awarded an internship at Louis Vuitton in Paris for 2007 after Christophe Girard, Deputy Mayor of Paris Responsible for Culture and Director of Fashion Strategy of the LVMH Fashion Group, met Pablo and viewed his portfolio. Pablo’s collection was showcased on the runway of the 24th Annual Macy’s Passport 2006 in San Francisco and Los Angeles. He accepted a position with Nice Collective here in San Francisco before moving to New York to work on a collection with his twin brother Ernesto who graduated from the School of Fashion two years earlier.
