isabel and ruben toledo

by admin | March 03, 2011

Welcome to the inspired ,  visionary,  madcap world of Isabel and Ruben Toledo, a fashion/art love combo from NYC.

They met in high school in New Jersey,  both originaly from Cuba they shared a love of art,  fashion and the underground dance club scene of eighties New York.   Known as the fashion designer's designer,  Isabel became more widely known after  Michelle Obama wore one of her creations to Obama's inauguration.  Her designs are known for their detailed construction, in part due to her training as a repair seamstress at the Metropolitan Museum of Art,  where she learned the intricacies of vintage costume design.

Ruben is extremely vocal about Isabel being his ultimate muse,  she inspires everything he does,  his fashion illustrations and paintings are magical and appear regularly in Vogue and other high end magazines.   Often collaborating together,  Ruben and Isabel are both highly revered in their fields.

We love them for their incredible talent, passion,  collaborative lives and careers,  and the fact that they are so, so in love with each other after more than 30 years together!
