“When I began this collection, I wanted to pay homage to my Latin roots. It came so naturally when thinking of silhouettes and details that would emphasize movement and design elements that embody the Latin women. I drew inspiration from Folkloric dresses, their fluidity, ruffles, flounces, gathers, and the mix of fabrics and ribbons. I pictured my bride walking down the streets of Buenos Aires, Cartagena, Granada, Santiago, and la Habana, to name a few. She’s experiencing the greatest love affair, with her beloved, walking through cobble streets to quaint restaurants with outdoor patios, gleaming light bulbs hanging, great food, and bolero music… They dance the night away. Imagining the movement each dress creates, and the use of print and mixture of fabrics, these design elements were brought it to support her love story.” – Martha Suarez
