He signed his first collection in 1991 and, in ’95, he obtained the Perry Ellis Award for New Fashion Talent. Much appreciated in the United States, he formed a joint venture with the Italian group Gilmar, starting the business from the autumn-winter ’98-99 season and aiming for international diffusion.

Find an agreement with the Tse Luxury Label to design cashmere garments. In 2000, he launched his second line VIC Diffusion and a luxury line of sportswear.

Alfaro’s style

Victor Alfaro’s style is avant-garde, elegant in cut and line combined with the use of luxurious fabrics. His eveningwear features designs that embody a spirit of sexuality and power through wraparound leather and sheer fabrics that are worn by many prominent women. Considered the heir to Oscar de la Renta and Bill Blass, Alfaro has never sought to philosophize through his clothes, on the contrary, his mission is as simple as making the wearer look beautiful.

While working for the American redy-to-wear designer Joseph Abboud, he acquired the technique of mixing separate dresses for cocktail and evening, as in the autumn/winter 2017 collection, in which he sets aside his beloved knitwear for trends in American streetwear.


Since 2018 Victor Alfaro has stopped producing fashion collections.
