Exclusive Interview: Backstage with Raul Melgoza at Luca Luca Spring 2011 Here is a caption. Kristin Cavallari, Solange Knowles and Petra Nemcova were just a few of the boldface names holding down the front row at Luca Luca's Spring 2011 show. Why the star-studded turnout? Well, because creative director Raul Melgoza gives them what they want: clothes that play to the bold characteristics of a woman without sacrificing her softness.

For his Spring 2011 collection, the known architecture buff found inspiration in the Sidney Opera House, whose iconic sail-like structures turned up both in graceful prints and in the fluid geometry of the garments—think fluttering cap sleeves, weightless fabrics, rope and sheer details all rendered in sunset shades.

StyleBistro caught up with Melgoza backstage before his New York Fashion Week show to get the scoop on the clothes and his ideal Luca Luca woman (ahem, Cate Blanchett!). Check it out!
