Juan Gabriel Is The Inspiration For This Honduran’s Latest Fashion Collection And It’s Magical

Honduran fashion designer Carlos Campos is a huge fan of the late Juan Gabriel. So much in fact, that he honored the music legend in his latest runway show.

Carlos Campos debuted his Juan Gabriel-inspired men’s fall 2018 collection at his own show on Feb. 6.

Campos told Women’s Wear Daily that his designs and tailoring were inspired by the traditional charro outfit.

“I love mariachis and their music and I wanted to reinterpret what Juan Gabriel would have worn today,” Campos told WWD.

The line is rich in color, and also features lots of turtlenecks matched with blazers.

Campos, who was inspired to be a fashion designer by his father who was a master tailer, launched his first collection in 2007. His show this year had a few celebs in attendance including Whoopi Goldberg. Campos’ use of turtlenecks shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone paying attention to the latest trends since it is one of the hottest looks right now.

Here’s a clip of the show, and check out the music. Juan Gabriel would be proud.

You’ll probably get chills just watching it.

His fans clearly loved it too.

Campos has used his platform as a fashion designer to bring attention to the immigration debate surrounding Dreamers and DACA recipients. He came to the U.S. without documentation when he was only 13 but has since changed his status.

I am the perfect example of the American dream,” Carlos told AFP News. “I am a dreamer and I will continue to be.” He also said: “I sympathize with them because I lived this situation for many years. “It’s very sad to see them in that situation ― we all deserve an opportunity.”

If you’re doubting for a second that Juan Gabriel would ever wear Carlos Campos today, check out this fly outfit.

JuanGa is clearly still very missed by his fans.

‘Coco’ Had An Alternate Opening That Explains Dia De Los Muertos And It Is Beautiful

“Coco” is a cultural phenomenon that put Mexican culture in the front seat of the American consciousness. It is the highest grossing film in Mexico’s box office history and it has been nominated for a couple of Oscars. The story dives deep into the world of Día de los Muertos through Miguel, an aspiring young musician, when he enters the underworld in search for his family. It was recently reported that there was an alternative opening to the movie that explains, through song, the holiday that many Mexicans and Mexican-Americans hold dear.

Here’s the alternate “Coco” opening you never got to see in theaters.

Co-directors Lee Unkrich and Adrian Molina introduce the clip in the video addressing the audience directly.

“This next scene is the old opening of the film. This was in for a very long time, a number of years before we changed it,” co-director Molina says. “What it is is, it’s a little musical number to introduce you to the world of ‘Coco.'”

The clip starts sad and grey as one would expect when talking about death, but that doesn’t last long.

The song turns quick to an upbeat, party-themed song that would get anybody moving. It is accompanied with bright colors and lights because Día de los Muertos is a celebration of life and death after all.

There is a moment where the song explains the different food traditionally used to honor your loved ones.

Of course that includes pan de muerto and mole. They even sing about sugar skulls, which represent different loved ones who have passed away.

And you can’t forget about the ofrenda.

The ofrenda is the big Día de los Muertos alter. The alter holds all the photos of loved ones you want to remember and the offerings you want to sustain them.

The end of the intro is all about pyrotechnics and marigold umbrellas to tie it all together.

Clearly, this intro is amazing but you get no idea about the real world of Coco and the family you are going to be connected with. This intro would have been beautiful to watch but it is nice that we get to learn about the family in the intro they did choose for the theater release.

We want to know…
