My collections are thematic collections, but are part of a continuing evolution in my universe. Each new collection is based on the above. Thus a new tissue or a new body evolve in future collections, whether through clothing, accessories or new techniques ... But for me this winter is lively, full of color and movement, so we have worked in this collection very special fabrics such as cotton or muslin yumisima die, along with pailletes fringes and embroidery.

Emerged as a fluke during the Parade of Spring-Summer 2011 she visited Constan Hernandez (President of Hoss Intropia). There we saw that would be good for both benefit from synergies. On the one hand, Hoss wanted to present a more personal and unique product, and for us is the possibility of having a business infrastructure able to get very competitive prices and a worldwide presence.
