The Vision of fashion icon Gustavo Moscoso

Ecuadorian designer Gustavo Moscoso, renown internationally, has an exclusive store in Plaza Lagos. His designs, which have proudly represented the country in runways such as New York Fashion Week and Paris Fashion Week, evoke class and the imminent return to the tailor shop to dress well- using fashion as a tool to express the sentiments of the moment. 

Gustavo Moscoso had the privilege to be chosen by Disney as the only representative in Latin América to commemorate the 100 years of Mickey Mouse by creating Disney by Gustavo Moscoso clothing. 

He admires Gianni Versace, GianFranco Ferre, Valentino, and Giorgio Armani and is inspired by Coco Chanel, whom he considers to be an extraordinary woman who has liberated femininity through clothing.  

Gustavo is an atypical and eclectic designer who doesn’t follow established patterns. His inspiration is drawn from an internal search that is born from the deepest corners of his soul. “I am inspired by beautiful things, when I take a walk and the sky is blue, when I’m told a positive story, of struggle and success” he adds with a smile.  

He tells us that today the range of possibilities in terms of men’s fashion hasbecome wider, with a greater openness to wear new clothes where sand and white are important colors and soggier silhouettes are the trend of the moment. 

For the iconic designer, fashion is a matter of attitude and security, of being wise when picking you clothes, depending of the event or the place where you’re going. Clothes are important for invitations because it is a way to honor the host and being well dressed is key to looking -and feeling- great.
