works as a New York based incubator for Latin American fashion brands, with the sole purpose of expanding their talent into the US Market.
For the past two years, we have worked as a platform that showcases the name of excellent Latin American designers in New York City by offering the best retail space (in alliance with our retail partner Flying Solo NYC -the best collective of emerging designers in Manhattan) and by generating editorial and marketing content that provides these designers with the opportunity of having relevant international exposure that will help them grow their brand exponentially.
At this time, our Mission is to help brands connect with customers by creating an amazing online retail experience that displays the vision of each designer and the story behind their collections. Our Designers are mainly independent brands, whose attention to detail, fine fabrics and workmanship set them apart. Our shop offers a very detailed curation of their collections, so that our clients can find special and luxurious pieces from each of these brands.
For this reason, it has always been of the utmost importance for us to support talented designers in order to break that cultural gap, by offering the best of Latin American fashion aesthetics to the world
