You may not know it, but Bronx Science has its very own fashion professional. Since he was fifteen years old, Felix Lugo ‘19 has been designing and styling clothes, and he is working on turning his passion into a career. In a move to further his career prospects, Lugo is planning an upcoming fashion line. But how did Lugo get to this point, and what drives him to pursue his passion?

“I ask myself, what is it that specifically can make this article of clothing or outfit shine, and what can I do to bring that about in the most artistic and creative way possible?” said Felix Lugo ’19.

Lugo began his foray into fashion when he was around fifteen, but he never saw himself developing his craft into a professional career. “I began my fashion ‘career’ at around fourteen or fifteen years old. I put ‘career’ in quotations here because this was back at a time when I was definitely not considering pursuing this field seriously,” said Lugo. He became interested in fashion for its use as an expressive art form. Lugo knows that clothing is more than just what you wear; it is an incredibly expressive art form that can showcase both the views of the designer and the wearer.

For Lugo, inspiration comes from the environment around us as humans, and the overall mood of whatever scenario he is styling or designing.  “I ask myself, what is it that specifically can make this article of clothing or outfit shine, and what can I do to bring that about in the most artistic and creative way possible?” said Lugo. Inspiration for Lugo is wide ranging, and he is therefore able to draw it from many places, creating unique and fascinating styles that perfectly encapsulate the human spirit.

Like many artists, Lugo uses his styling and designing to portray his views on society and to make bold statements. Lugo describes fashion as a universal language and a platform best fit to introduce challenging new ideas regarding society. This platform is elevated by the personal aspect of actually wearing your statements and beliefs on your back. “Being able to challenge societal norms is possible with each art form, but with fashion, it is especially important,” said Lugo.

The driving forces of inspiration and proclamation are what steer Felix Lugo towards a bright future in the fashion industry.
