LUISA WHITE AND PALE MINT GREEN STRAPLESS BRIDAL GOWN


Luisa This bridal gown consists of a white strapless top and a pale mint green full skirt with pleats at the waist. The silk twill fabric of the top makes the heavy weight gazar of the skirt stand up. The skirt’s fabric choice pushes the dress into a more modern and pure identity. Photographed by Juma Herrera Rios. Modeled by Lucía González. Styled by Carmina Mery.


CASALIA BLOOD ORANGE SLEVELESS EMBROIDERED TUNIC GOWN


Casalia Lightweight Silk Gauze, like the one used on this dress, is the perfect option for getting a weightless and draped silhouette. The dress has a “V” neckline which has an embroidered nude tulle, which gives the impression that nothing is there unless you pay attention to detail. Photographed by Juma Herrera Rios. Modeled by Lucía González. Styled by Carmina Mery.


ALBERI

Layered Full Circle Skirt with an Embroidered Netting Leotard


Alberi The voluminous skirt on the two-piece dress balances the fitted top silhouette. Several types of satin silk on the skirt rest over chiffon fabric. This underskirt remains in view thanks to the gradual leg opening of the top layers. In addition to the playfullness of the skirt, some leaves were embroidered into the top. Photographed by Juma Herrera Rios. Modeled by LucĂ­a GonzĂĄlez. Styled by Carmina Mery.


KABUSHA cotton jacket with knitted collar and wrist panels


Kabusha The word “kabusha” in Zulu language means reborn. This jacket is made out of discarded curtains and a used sweater. All the materials for the Kabusha jacket’s construction were bought at the Goodwill Store. This garment is a true representation of fashion sustaintability. Photographed by Carmina Mery. Modeled by Tomo. Styled by Carmina Mery.
