Discover chanel #FrontRowOnly


Attending CHANEL fashion show has been one of the things that I had always dreamed about.
I remember that when I was 8 years old, I opened a coffee table book that my great-grandmother had at home. I still remember that the cover said ”CHANEL" in white letters with black background.
At that age I had no idea what CHANEL was, and obviously who Mademoiselle Coco Chanel was either, but I remember that as soon as I opened the book and found myself immersed  in a wonderful world of creation and inspiration that at that point was somewhat unknown but for some reason I was sure I wanted to know more about.

The world of fashion and Haute Couture has been something that has always caught my attention. The details, the technique, the clothing and the hours and hours of meticulous work are just some of the elements that make this a true art.

This is why for me to Discover CHANEL was a real dream.

Asistir a un desfile de CHANEL ha sido una de las cosas que mas deseaba desde que tengo uso de razón.
Recuerdo que cuando tenía 8 años abrí un libro de mesa que tenía mi bisabuela en su casa que decía en la portada "CHANEL" en letras blancas con fondo negro.
Yo,que a esa edad todavía no tenía ni idea de lo que significaba CHANEL, ni mucho menos quién había sido Mademoiselle Coco, solo recuerdo que en cuanto abrí ese libro me sentí inmediatamente inmersa en un mundo maravilloso de creación e inspiración que en su momento era un tanto desconocido pero que por alguna razón estaba segura que quería conocer mas.
El mundo de la moda, y la alta costura ha sido algo que siempre me ha llamado mucho la atención. El trabajo a mano, los detalles, la técnica, la confección y las horas y horas de trabajo meticuloso son solo algunos de los elementos que hacen de esto un verdadero arte.

Es por esto que para mi Discover CHANEL fue un verdadero sueño.

LIFE: Falling and getting back up.

La última semana de mi vida han sido un tanto drenante. Gracias a dios, es algo que no puso en peligro a nadie que amo, mas que a algunos cuantos años de esfuerzo y dedicación.

Magic is timeless (look 97) #DISCOVERCHANEL (Look 97)

One thing that will last a lifetime, or a hundred that will last a day ...

When I was very young, my great grandmother always told me: "When you grow up, you will understand the difference between having one timeless piece of clothing, instead of a million that will last a day"

Obviously I was too young to understand what she was talking about, much less know anything about quality standard or a thing called a "brand". 

Now that a few years have passed since she spoke those words to me, I understand clearly  what my grandmother was trying to teach me. It is no coincidence that today, one of my greatest pleasures is to go into her closet and take half of the things she's been collecting for years and years! Everything is in mint condition. And I'm talking about 1940s vintage pieces!

Quality is not about buying the most expensive things in the world. We misunderstand the concept. It seems that the more we spend or the more we have, is what defines who we are and therefore how much we're worth.

Thankfully, nowadays we all have the opportunity to find quality in things at prices that will suit our lifestyle. 
Again, we don't necessarily have to spend our month's rent on a bag, but know that if we do, it has to be invested in something really worthwhile. We need to learn the art of "buying", "consuming" and "purchasing".

Take The time (look 96)

   While I was in NY for fashion week I had the opportunity to shoot a very special collaboration with my talented friend Theresa Balderas. We had been talking about this idea for a long time and we wanted it to be a totally different concept of what I generally do when I work with brands. 
 Somewhat sexier and a little bit more revealing but of course without leaving the classiness behind. We took the pictures in the presidential suite at The Time Hotel in NYC which by the way was amazing!

Discovering Chanel (Part I)

For fashionistas, CHANEL is one of the most important references that exist. It is not just a luxury brand, but a lifestyle, an icon and the epitome of the classic, elegant but at the same time modern and avant-garde woman.

But before all of that, who was Coco Chanel?

Para los amantes de la moda, CHANEL es uno de los referentes más importantes que existe. No es solo una marca de lujo, sino un estilo de vida, un ícono y la máxima representación de la mujer clásica, elegante pero a la vez moderna y vanguardista.

Pero antes de todo, ¿Quién era Coco Chanel?
