laura copyLaura Riquett is a fashion designer graduated in Colombia and with over 8 years of experience in the Colombian market. She’s from Barranquilla, the city with the eternal summer and where the beach is part of the cultural dynamic. As a designer there you need to know the unspoken rules of the social trends and be aware what is changing in the fashion landscape.


Laura has traveled to fashion events in different cities which helped craft the global vision she imprints in her designs. Since she started making custom-fit couture for women, and with a special focus on women with sizes out of what is considered ‘standard’, she noticed the importance on teaching them how to better understand their bodies and regain the love for their different types of figures.


“I like to experiment, combine and take risks, explore the infinite world of colors and textures, and meet new cultures and forms of expression that open my mind to a new way of thinking fashion”, she explains.


Here are a few tips so you can make the best out of your beach vacation. She never travels without comfortable shoes and among these suggestions we highlight the importance of drinking water while you are exposed to the sun.
