Monday night in Medellin, was the launch of Esteban Cortazar’s first collection with Latin American retailer Exito.

This collaboration is the first of three capsule collections by the Colombian-born designer; in the footsteps of what others have done for brands like H&M or Topshop. The show, produced by MHT Productions, was presented as part of Colombiamoda, the country’s fashion week.

It is a strong & exciting next step for the young designer, who brought along with him on this project his top Parisien team, after leaving his position as creative director at Ungaro last year.
