Billy Porter's eye-catching look on the red carpet at the Golden Globes last Sunday is still buzzing. Behind that eccentric white outfit from which a long tail of feathers unfolded, which drew all eyes, is a talent "made in Argentina".

Alex Vinash, responsible for the actor's most commented outfits, once again dazzled everyone. The designer was born in Buenos Aires but has lived in New York for years. With his own name created in the world of fashion, he was not always related to this area.


In his beginnings, he worked in hotels and competed in ice skating, an activity that led him to tour different parts of the world for 15 years. When he turned thirty, he questioned his true vocation and it was there that he realized that the world of fashion and design was his thing.

Thus, in search of her full happiness, she began to design her first outfits, launched an ice skating line and opened her first store in Barcelona.

His big break came in 2014. As fate would have it, one of Vanity Fair's stylists passed through the door of his studio and decided to go in to ask him for some of his designs for a production he was doing. Nothing more and nothing less than fashion giants like Dolce & Gabbana, Nina Ricci and Christian Dior. That was his first big step.

Her popularity grew when she began dressing celebrities like Paris Hilton and Billy Porter. The protagonist of "Pose" became his main advertisement and his designs became a registered trademark on the red carpets of the main events in the world of cinema and television thanks to the participation of the activist for the rights of the black and LGBT community. .

At the Golden Globes, Vinash did not disappoint and chose for Porter a white tuxedo with an impressive feathered train, which he accessorized with Jimmy Choo boots made with more than 4,000 Swarovski crystals and jewels from Tiffany and Co.
