Most kids grew up watching the Disney Channel but in my living room you could find my father and I watching Mexican classic movies from the 50’s in specific films with actress Maria Felix also known as “La Dona”. I remember admiring her dresses and beauty which were a constant inspiration for me even at a young age. Her style was impeccable keeping a balance between classy, bold and extravagant, she was great at accessorizing her timeless looks.
Below you can find a video with more of her best fashion moments.
Today I would like to share my favorite designer in the world the one and only Benito Santos, he is a Mexican designer based in Mexico, well known for dressing Miss Universe Ximena Navarrete in 2010. I had the opportunity to wear one of his dresses back in 2012 and I can honestly say his garments make you feel and look like a Goddess, it was a dream come true for me not only as a client but as a fashion design student. One of my favorite collections are his Bridal ones he is a master when it comes to dressing brides on that special day, if you have any doubt just take a peek at his campaigns I shared two of my favorite down below.
Today Benito Santos is dressing a number of celebrities including Mexico’s first lady, his success is fast paced and rising high quickly. Check out his Beautiful Bridal Campaigns and follow him @benitosantosoficial

Last June I took a trip to Puerto Vallarta Mexico, the experience was fun and full of inspiration every corner I looked at was rich in color and it had something crafty. This is one of my favorite pieces that I found In Mexico it’s an embroidery fabric framed on the wall. Unfortunately this piece belonged to the Spa and it was not for sale, bummer!!!
One of the reason why I want to focus In Bridal design is because of beading,lace and embroidery, if you ask me its all about the details I hope I can continue to go back to Mexico and find more inspiration to share with you guys.
What do you think? Share your comments and let me know if you love embroidery as much as I do.
