H&M llega a México

The wait is over. The Swedish powerful fashion brand H&M opens their first flagship store in Mexico this November 1st. at the "Centro Comercial Santa Fe" in the Santa Fe area in the City. This will be a three story store with a 4,200 square meter space, offering women's, men's, children, accessories, and many other products. H&M is known for offering the latest trends at a very affordable price.

I think Mexico needed this. There are not so many options for us, and we have to travel to other countries to get the stuff we want. Now we have it here, available and on time. The only question is: Will Mexicans know how to style these clothes? We'll see

My weekend at Teen Vogue

So this weekend was Teen Vogue Fashion University. I have been attending this amazing event for 3 years now and I cant still have enough of it. You get to see so many important people from the industry and they give advice to follow on your career. It's an experience every fashion lover that wants to work in the industry must have.

First they threw us a party at H&M, giving away 25% off! Isn't that nuts? The party was pretty cool and Blondfire played while all the Fashionistas shopped.
 Saturday was a pretty busy day for me. Starting at 8am, we headed to The Hudson Theater at Boradway, to get started with our seminars. The opening speaker was Grace Coddington. I admire her work so much, I can't even start. She talked about becoming Creative Director of american Vogue, and how she keeps, being "creative" in today's world.
 The next speaker I picked was Olivier Theyskens. He is full of energy and charismatic. I think it was my favorite seminar of the event. Theyskens talked about being creative director of both Theory and Theysken's Theory, and how he sees the different two labels.
Nicole Richie was ADORABLE. I got to ask her something about her career and her answer was really interesting. I love this about TVFU, you have the amazing opportunity to ask the heads of the fashion industry any question you have.
We had a lunchbreak, and then it was time for the Editorial Floor Tour. They gave us an exclusive tour around the Teen Vogue offices at the Condé Nast building. The closet was my favorite room. It's so full of color and so many shoes! it's crazy.

I also got to hear Philip Lim and the Teen Vogue editors talking about their careers and how they got to the point they're right now.

I'll be posting more about this weekend. Because there IS so much more. Stay tuned!

Featured on The Cut

Words cannot describe how excited I am to be featured on New York Magazine's blog "The Cut". I have always been a reader of The Cut, and I find it trully inspiring. And to be featured on in, was like the cherry on top of the prefect trip to New York (which I'll be doing a post about very soon). 

I leave you with the article called "The future stars of Fashion at Teen Vogue University" by Chuck Grant and Katie Van Syckle.

Austin City Limits: Day 1

 Austin City Limits was AMAZING. I cannot describe how much fun I had with my friends. One of the best weekends of my life. These pictures are from day 1 when we saw Florence & the Machine, Weezer, The Black Keys, and M83. I'll be posting more photos from the other two days.
