Two weeks ago I woke up and followed my daily routine. Half asleep, half awake I turned on my computer, opened my e-mail and I found an invitation to the 5th edition of ELLE México Diseña, in Veracruz (ELLE México Diseña is the platform to find young design talent). I couldn´t believe it. It sounded too good to be true. But … it was true. And so on June 3rd I found myself in Veracruz sipping on cocktails together with my friends and partners, Botica Pop and Guapologa.
It started at Casa de la Condesa de Malibrán, a perfect space perfect for a wedding. At least that’s what more than one girl told me. And between drinking, meeting new people, and taking pictures, we all were waiting for the important jury to come out and score the 12 garments competing for the grand prize.
I was looking forward to seeing the jury, especially the stunning Isabeli Fontana and the Dsquared2 twins, Dan and Dean Caten. The other other jury members were the photographer Santiago Sierra, ELLE´s Editor in Chief, MariPaz Ocejo, ELLE´s Executive Editor, Sara Galindo, and the fashion director of El Palacio de Hierro, Covadonga Blanco.
The night went by too fast, and suddenly we were heading back to our hotel, tired but happy.
Taking pictures in the night with the wrong lens is difficult, but I tried my best. Enjoy.
Tomorrow, the second journey of ELLE México Diseña.
