Every November, the best bloggers, influencers, journalists and designers gather in Guatemala city to celebrate local talent.

This year, Wakami designed the oficial event bracelet. This bracelet was black, white and pink and had a volcano stone on it to make reference to the Guatemalan landscape. Besides, it had a medallion that said #GuateEstáDeModa spanish for: Guate is fashionable.  The tassel and texture on our bracelet were an expression of Guatemala’s culture and diversity.

During fashion week our team witnessed the best of our local designers and some international fashionistas aswell. Many influencers and press wore the bracelet with pride as a way of making a statement and inviting other guatemalans to join this growing industry.

The runways were filled with colors and flowy designs. Lia Cohen for example, presented a collection that screamed feminity. Using soft fabrics and simple silhoutetes. Eduardo Figueroa on the other hand, presented a collection that was filled with bright colors and big fashion statements such as dramatic hats and huge bags.

Extravaganza is one of any fashion weeks best part. Ladrón de Guevara  from perú presented an interactive show in which the audience was able to aproach the models and interact with them. This collection made it clear that fashion isn’t just something that you wear, but instead something that you can experience and live.

Designers such as Sofía Contreras made it clear that fashion is art, and presented walking art pieces made out of handmade textiles. In my opinion, this collection was unforgetable! Mariandree Gaitán was a huge highlight this year by presenting a luxurious and femenine night gown collection, that was filled with metallic colors and elegant cuts.

These are not the only designers that cought my mind, but I’d have to write for at least 10 more pages to describe each collection and how proud I feel of Guatemalan design and fashion proposal. This country is becoming more aware of its potential each day and this, is definetly what makes our collective dream a reality.

In Wakami we work for the communities, but we know that fashion and design is what the markets are asking for. We are sure that being part of such big event is a great way of connecting our rural artisans work with the world markets. In this journey we realized that by puting our talents together and dreaming with others we can accomplish anything we want to, this is why Wakami is so thankful to be part of this dream of a Guatemala that exports and presents it’s talent to the World.

Keep on dreaming with others,
