“Expression of Intersectionalities” is inspired the experience of a gender-fluid Latinx immigrant, as well as blue collar jobs vs. white collar opportunities. The saying “Lo que es para ti nadie te lo quita” translates as: what is meant for you no one can take away.

Meet the Designer
In second grade I woke up one day with the idea of an off the shoulder ball gown, and that was the exact day I began to design clothes. My grandmother was a designer in Costa Rica and I wanted to follow in her footsteps. I chose sportswear because I feel that I can best express my ideas through this specialization. It allows me to design with structure as well as fluidity. I like to use personal experiences to help inspire me in my design process. Being an immigrant has helped shape my design aesthetic. I like to mix workwear with business attire, as well as designing without the restrictions that gender provides. Representation is important to me, and through my designs I feel that I tell my story as a Latinx immigrant, and my hope is that other Latinx immigrants will be able to see themselves represented through my work.
