Rolando Santana debuted his line, Rolando Santana, in September 2009. The line may be new, but Rolando Santana has been in the industry designing for 12 years. Santana has taken his knowledge of fashion and what women want to create an elegant and chic line that women from models to socialites like Real Housewife Alex McCord are loving!

I have had the chance to meet Rolando on several occasions and he even attended and dressed some of the ladies at Summer Social 2010! Rolando spoke exclusively to me and OJ&B about his beautiful new collection. Here is what he had to say.
"My collection is a reflection of my personality and a way to connect to my consumer. It is young, contemporary and when I am designing my collections I try design pieces that take a woman many places but most importantly, pieces that would make her feel special."

From the looks and sounds of people's compliments during Summer Social about Natasha and Allie's dresses, I would say that he is doing a good job at making women feel very special. Let's check out some of my favorite looks from Mr. Santana!
Above: I am all about this two toned romper! I think it looks amazing on and it is perfect for right now during the warm months. The feminine dress on the right is very sweet and can easily go from day to night with the right accessories.
Above: I really love this look! The looseness of the piece combined with the tough boots really speak to me. I love mixing soft with tough. Pairing boots with things you would not think to pair them with can totally transform an outfit and give you a fun edgy look.
Above: Rolando has these awesome rain jackets that are light but get the job done! In a place like NYC where you spend a lot of time in a jacket, it is very important to look fab and wear a fun jacket that reflects your personality. They come in a rainbow of colors!
Congratulations to Rolando on starting up his line! I wish him nothing but the best and I look forward to seeing what he has in store for Spring/Summer 2011!
