As Ana’s sister, we shared the same upbringing in Cancun, MX. Being surrounded by the Caribbean Sea andJungle established in me wanting to continue a life of enchantment and independence. When I was a teen, like many teens I felt like a “weirdo” in my small town and at 19 I decided to move to my romanticized idea of The City Where Weirdo’s Are Free: San Francisco, CA (which was everything I wanted and more). I enrolled in the fashion school FIDM to study fashion design. It was there where I discovered that my greatest passion was Fairy Tales which led me to start my own line inspired in Mermaids with the intention of making the wearer feel like they are on vacation in a fantasy island where they are the main character in a Magical Story.
After school I moved back to Mexico to find production and start the line. I built it slowly and steadily on my own and over the years had enough to move back to America, this time to New York City where I now have my HQ and ship from. Margarita Mermaid has been featured in Nylon Magazine and Sports Illustrated. Our own online store is now my main source of income as well as the line being carried by Forever 21, Dolls Kill and other retailers.
I’m excited about co-hosting this retreat because the struggles and obstacles I went through on my way to success will allow me to share with you everything that I wish I knew before I started.
