Mexican born designer Rolando Santana has designed a collection of lovely party dresses and separates for Spring of 2011. The designs are both elegant and body conscious, created from a palette of neutral tones that will flatter a variety of complexions.

Of particular note are the asymmetrical designs and the lovely swirling fabric on many of the dresses. The boy shorts are also a lot of fun.

According to the bio on his website, Santana was raised in Curnevaca, Mexico, a beautiful town in the mountains that has always been a mecca for the foreign and the fabulous. Santana's mother was a dress maker so he was born into the business of design.

Santana goal is to "create looks with the primary purpose of always making all women feel beautiful in his dresses." I believe he has succeeded.
