Fashion Studio Magazine
NEW YORK - Fashion Studio Magazine brings you coverage by Eugene De Villamil, our New York City-based fashion photographer.
On February 17, 2011, in the renowned Studio 450, Saint Wobil showed its latest collection during New York Fashion Week entitled “Fall Winter Fantasy”.
The inspiration for the collection was the beauty and fantasy-like of high society New York in the winter. The designer’s ambition for his latest project was to bring the elegance of fantasy into reality.
Saint Wobil presented stylish and sophisticated designs. Metallic gold with cream accents, black, red and purple were dominant colours of the evening. There were lots of shimmering glitter, beautiful adornments, and complementing details. Fitted skirt dresses, pencil skirts and long evening gowns, bolero jacket silhouettes - all very feminine and elegant - were enhanced by models' unique hairstyles.
Darius E. Wobil started his fashion career at an early age. He learned how to sew and how to pick up the best fabrics when he was only eight, helping his mother who worked for Oscar de la Renta. Darius studied design at American Intercontinental University, then worked for Atlanta based designer Leon Parham and for the Urban Alligator. Soon after he launched Saint Wobil, a line he named "to communicate the modesty, passion, and sacrifice of a Saint to fashion".
Darius is also the lead designer for Neo Soul's clothing company Negrs Lebrum in New Orleans, in addition to being the new designer for Chulo men's underwear. He is referred to as "Georgia's youngest couture, Atlanta's Valentino". His work has graced the covers and editorial pages of Italian Vogue, Requin, Epic, Noir Couture, Urban Socialites, and UCE.

"I love flashes of gold and luxurious fabric. Saint Wobil is all about well cut fabrics and offering great comfort in style." - Darius E. Wobil
