“The idea is that the event is a platform for designers to make themselves known not only locally, but internationally,” said Karina Díaz, director of the organization.

Among the special guests was Costa Rica’s first lady, Claudia Dobles, who highlighted the waste of national talent, as well as the invited Latin designers.

In this edition, designer Linda Liz made her debut, with an athleisure collection inspired by her sister Coco, and her as an oncology and ostomy patient; It also stands out for being inclusive since it is designed for different sizes.


“The collection is made of lycra, which is a very sporty fabric, but something that I really liked is that, instead of dyeing the fabrics, a double sublimation process was carried out so that an impeccable finish can be seen without contaminating the water sources,” Diaz said.

The proposal of the Triana tailor shop led by Marianela Sandí was also appreciated, which was inspired by the Renaissance era, they highlighted elegant and sophisticated lines, both for men and women.

As part of the international talent, the presentation of the Colombian Pepa Pombo stood out, who was inspired by the work of the North American artist Helen Frankenthaler, and who represented contemporary femininity in comfortable, timeless and asymmetrical pieces.

The collection of Beatriz Camacho was also showcased, who presented 36 looks from the resort universe (collections between seasons), with pieces inspired by the poetry of the nature of the salt crystals of the Colombian salt flats.
