Cecilia has a menswear line called “CA Couture” that has been featured in multiple fashion shows, alongside noteworthy brand names such as Christopher Straub, Hellz Bellz, Adapt, and Acrylick. Her work has been displayed in the front window of Saks Fifth Avenue Men’s Store in Downtown San Francisco and has been featured in the likes of major publications such as 944 Magazine, the San Francisco Examiner and Apparel News.

Inspired by Madonna’s pioneering go-girl characteristics, Jean-Paul Gaultier’s timeless rockstar glamour and the earlier years of Vivienne Westwood, Cecilia has also made a true artform of “punking” women’s clothing. She has mastered strategically cutting and slashing clothes to make them her own, making her a Deconstructionist / Stylist in her women’s line called “Punky Couture”. As a designer, she is currently a wardrobe stylist for high-fashion photo shoots, music videos and works with several streetwear brands, taking steps to fuse high fashion with streetwear using her evolving fashion taste, yet traditional, classically trained skills. She is taking every opportunity to fulfill her dreams of working for a Design House as a Menswear Designer and fate brought her to a Design Company, Andre Soriano. Cecilia Aragon is now the Head Menswear Designer for established San Diego Fashion Designer, Andre Soriano. They are now working on their first collaborative collection to launch Andre Soriano’s Menswear at Fashion Week San Diego.

Cecilia Aragon is a competing designer of a new fashion competition series “Styled to Rock”. Her collection will be part of the collaborative show closing the Thursday night runway shows of Fashion Week San Diego 2013. For more information on the collaborative show, click here.
