Venezuela is the country with the longest Caribbean coastline, and many diving hot spots still to be unveiled. You might know the country from beauty pageants, or from its ‘Revolution’. The crisis in our country pushed forward our creativity and resourcefulness. I am extremely honored to present some creative Venezuelan talents, that support me during MSI 2015:
Luisana Rodríguez, a young entrepreneur that has been learning all the tricks to make flattering, fresh swimwear. She designs and plans each piece directly with her customers, and produces all the swimsuit by hand in Venezuela.
Freddy Umbría – or as I got to know him: the ‘Paperoflexo-man’- has been inspiring Venezuelan designers to take advantage of the origami art. Even more, he promotes the use of recycled materials when creating a wide range of items: including clothing!
I am really exited and can`t wait to showcase all these items from Venezuelan talent…how to ship all these elements form Venezuela to Malaysia will be a worthwhile challenge!
Shooting you a post soon!
