The best part about fashion in another city… seeing how different people express their style
In my suitcase you can always find… My collection is great for traveling as it packs down to nothing and a pair of Nike sneakers for running around!
My favorite part about going back to Chile is… seeing my family and how the country is evolving .
While in Chile, you should always…explore the nature. They have so many extreme climates and gorgeous natural attractions from the Atacama Desert to Patagonia.
If someone I know is visiting Chile, I make sure to tell them to… Eat local home style food like alfajores and majar and go to Los domenicos craft village in Santiago for beautiful textiles and ceramics .
