It’s rather dark but romantic, bold but feminine – that’s what first drew my attention to Angela Reyna’s Fall/Winter 2013 collection. And after taking a closer look at each piece, I came to realization that she loves to play with various textile designs and materials. But apparently, what matters to her most is the story. It always begins with a story she said, when asked about what her creative process is to come up with collections, it’s the story that later dictates the design and materials.
Wishing for more international recognition, Angela stepped out of her comfort zone by agreeing to show her Spring/Summer 2014 collection at the Vancouver Fashion Week last September. It was one of her proudest moment she said, being able to show her luxurious and feminine collection to the Canadian fashion crowd.
An admirer of Alexander McQueen’s work, she dreams to one day collaborate with Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Pitccioli, the creative directors of Valentino. Having worked with some of her pieces, I think she’s on the right path to achieve that dream.
If you love her designs and don’t have the patience to wait until they are being sold in your country, you can place an order on her Facebook page. But if you live in Mexico, you’re in luck, because you can get them at the following stores: Sioux Boutique, Wonderland store, RIP by Ropa Pistola, Purenvy.mx, Galeria Boutique (Puebla), and Mal de amores (Xalapa).
