The line is inspired by Latin fashion trends.
“The idea of open our business started during a typical conversation between friends, Larissa told me she was trying to buy clothes to go to the gym when she noticed the lack of vibrant colors and feminine designs in the activewear clothing in the US,” Carmen exclusively told In Touch. “So she expressed to me her wish of bringing the Latin designer brand [trends] here and offer the public a different option.”
