Gonzalez, was a winner of Fashion Fusion, a fashion competition in the category of Most Sculptural for his white linen-based fabric gown.

Participating students drew inspiration from the museum’s exhibit “Sculpted in Steel: Art Deco Automobiles and Motorcycles, 1929-1940.
Gonzalez, who was born in Monterrey, Mexico and raised in Houston, Texas emphasized, “It is important for me to be true to my culture, my roots and my heritage. I try to bring that alive with each one of my creations. That’s what I like most about my work.”
