“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.
