Designer Background Summary:
Designing clothes that complement a woman’s beauty is my passion. I was born in Venezuela, graduated of the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City and Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in London. I returned to New York in 2006 where I worked at Douglas Hannant Couture Atelier while starting my own collection. Since then my work has been carried in specialty boutiques in New York, Chicago, San Francisco and Madrid.

If money were no object what would you do right now? Good representation
What are the best and worst things about being a designer? Love the creativity part, like production, selling is ok – collecting money is a different story!
Describe your typical day?
Drinking strong coffee in the AM, constantly talking to my boys all day (Taj and Rio) my doggies (afghan hound and Cocker spaniel) while I do work!
What’s your philosophy of life? Evolving within
If you could do it all over again, what would you do differently?
I think you have to make mistakes in order to learn…I made many in this journey, and I am still learning – so if I have the chance to start over, I will probably be making the same mistakes…
When will you know you have made it? When my label is everywhere… and I open my first boutique
