Man of the Cloth: Interview with Viktor Luna at NYFW


Interview with Viktor Luna at NYFW

Viktor Luna is no stranger to Project Runway fans all over the world, of course. But he’s also known as a designer worth continuing to watch, here and now. FWO editor Eila Mell sat down with Viktor before his SS17 collection at New York Fashion Week.

Q: I’m here with Viktor Luna, my BFF. I’m so excited to see his fashion show tonight. Viktor, how are you?

Very nervous.

Q: There’s no reason! I saw a little sneak peek of the collection and it’s amazing.

The collection is awesome, yes. I am so excited to show it. I can’t wait for everyone to take a look at it, it’s so beautiful.

Q: And can we buy it? Is it going to be available on your website?

It’s going to be available on my website and it’s also going to be available in some of the stores. I pictured them — and I’m sure this is the most sellable collection that I’ve done in a long time, so I’m sure that it’s going to be accessible sometime.

Q: You know I’m a big fan of your leather jackets. Am I going to see some leather jackets tonight?

It’s a departure from leather. I have a leather dress. But I wanted to take it back to the ’90s — all about fabrics, things that we kind of forgot a little bit about, or at least for me. I wanted to just bring it back a little bit to the romanticism of fabrics and layers and textures and colors … and I just wanted to make it more romantic.

I wanted to take it back to the ’90s, all about fabrics.

Q: Wonderful. We’re so happy to have the chance to talk to you and I’m so excited to see you.

Thank you for coming. I love you.

Q: I love you, too.
