I like clothes but I’m far from being a fashionista, I see the trends but I don’t necessary follow all of them, I use to buy my clothes & accessories based on my style and if it looks goods. Obviously, I follow and shop at big brands like Zara, H&M, but lately I’m tending to go for smaller indie brands that are making great designs with the highest quality and the talent behind those brands is amazing.
As I’m Venezuelan I have a sweet spot for brands that are form my country but also brands that are from Latin America , a region very close of my heart and where there is amazing talent and people that really work hard to get their designs out there. Today I would like to share some of those brands I’m loving so you get to know their products and stories.
Etherea is a Venezuelan brand, based in Caracas, founded by Gabriela Acosta. She has beautiful and timeless design for everyday clothes but also has an atelier for brides. She sourced her fabrics from around the world and she is determined to create in Venezuela, even though with all the obstacles that the current situation has. Her signature piece is a sport vest that is beautiful. The brand does not have a webpage yet , but you can follow them in IG and order directly. They ship worldwide. Their IG accounts are: @ethereaccs & @ethereaatelier
Taller Puro Corazon
This is a Mexican brand that is located in Mexico city that creates colorful an unique t-shirts and capes. I’m obsessed with their t-shirt with the heart and you can customized it as you like!. They stand for the same causes I do and I love when brands get to be unique and set their own trend and be successful at it. They ship internationally and I will be going to their showroom in December when I travel to Mexico. (if COVID allow me to). Their IG is @tallerpurocorazon
Erika Yelo is another great Venezuelan brand that specializes is jewelry. I got to know them when I was living in Panama from 2013-2017. And I purchased a few of her bracelet and I love it, the quality is amazing and the design is unique, when you see a EY bracelet you know is from her. Unfortunately, mine got stolen on a trip, but I’m saving to buy them again. She is now based in Spain and ship worldwide, you can check her designs at erikayelo.com and her IG account is @erikayelo
I have mentioned Camila in my blog before. She is a Venezuelan influencer that I have followed in the last 10 years. I really admire her and in the last 5 years she launched her bags collection made in Italy with unusual designs and colors. Every year she launches 2 collections and never repeats design and prints. I’m also saving to buy one of her designs as they are beautiful and I will be super proud to have of them. She ships internationally and her page is camilacanabalshop.com and her IG is: @camilacanablashop
