Fashion is based in fantasy, in every girl's dream of becoming a princess & stealing Prince Charming's heart dressed in a beautiful robe made by the hands of true geniuses. Is no wonder then, why girls start living those dreams in the early stages of their lives playing with their Barbies, dressing them up, dolling them up & getting them ready for the perfect date with Ken.
Out of all the styles that canonize our rushed society, elegant & original will always perdure with ever lasting astonishment. Capturing the eyes of gazers that will cherish that moment when you walked through the streets in that beautiful blazer.
And just like that 8-year-old girl that dreamed of being that Barbie, master couturiers have played with the pantomime realness of dressing up (search Viktor & Rolf FW 2010 show if you want to kill your curiosity). But this time it was the turn of a dear friend & local-very-talented designer to play with that fantasy.
Last July Fernanda Quiros presented her first collection to the panamanian market, pleasing most of us with a delightful mix of aboriginal juice with the hard-rock-statically-edge of modern architecture, a fresh melange de trois for fashion lovers in our country.
After 7 months of hard work & great efforts, Pura Jagua (the name of the collection) has been open to sale for the public, offering great clothes for great prices. Fernanda presented her baby at Espacio Vintage, a store that's become an open window for national designers who want to showcase their talent surrounded by great people.
A collection that evoked the summery days in Panama (just like the one we enjoyed that Sunday morning, paired with the most perfect brunch by Naranja & Limon) will surely make it to a lot of closet of fashion lovers in Panama & why not, around the globe :)
