Lucia Flores' Profile

About

Dearest visitor, welcome! Thank you so much for visiting my shop & profile!

My name is Lucia Flores, born and raised in the Netherlands. Since childhood I knew what I wanted to become, a fashion desinger, just like my grandmother. She teached me the real deal, real craftsmanship, from as far as I can remember. She teached me the art of traditional weaving, braiding, knitting, embroidering and of course the art of making patterns and making measured clothing.
I started my carreer at the age of 6, making small bags and stuffed animals. I sold them on season markets at my primary school to raise money for good purposes.
By the age of 12 I drew my own patterns and made my own clothing. After finishing high school I studied finance, business and marketing and worked in a fashion company for a few years to gain experience in the…

By the age of 12 I drew my own patterns and made my own clothing. After finishing high school I studied finance, business and marketing and worked in a fashion company for a few years to gain experience in the fashion industry and to know how to run a business. In 2009 I started a quick study programme on a private Fashion Academy in Breda, to gain an official degree in Fashion Design and to extend my knowledge even more.
In April 2011 I officially opened my online business. I started with a jewelry and bags collection and extended it with a clothing collection a few months later. I grew a lot in one year and launched my first season collection recently.
I am mainly inspired by culture, historical figures and folkloric art from all over the world. Mexico is one of my biggest inspirations. I love to play with colors and patterns. In each piece of my collection you will find some Mexican influences. I'm a self-professed lover of travel and life long student of international culture and art. I travelled all over the world to get inspired by different cultures and people.

I'm trying to find my way in the world of fashion and gain myself a place of recognition with my style. Whether I will make it or not, I will continue to share my ideas with the world, to hopefully be seen one day.

Any support is very appreciated!! If you think somebody you know might love my work, just send them my way! Comments, feedback or suggestions are very welcome! Hopefully Etsy will give me experiences and relationships that will continue to shape the exploration of my collection.

Lots of Love,
Lucia Flores
