Ecuadorian Monica Campaña will present today Lady MC at the Miami Beach International Fashion Week 2012 event. Before tonight’s presentation Ecuador Times had a backstage chat with her regarding her fashion creations.
1. Is this your first time participating in the Miami Fashion Week?
This is the first time I participate and I have high expectations because my goal is to have Monica Campaña brand to be recognized internationally.
2. Have you taken your creations to other national or international events?
In Ecuador, Guayaquil, I participated in Ecuador Fashion Week and Book Designer.
In the town of Cuenca I had the opportunity to participate in a showroom organized exclusively for me by BG Magazine to present my “Studio 54” collection which I launched in April 2011.
3. How long have you been working in the fashion industry?
I’ve been working four years on this.
4. What design college did you study at?
I have a Bachelor of Engineering in International Business which has been the cornerstone of my professional life, but four years ago I decided that fashion design was my passion for life so I took courses at Secap and then entered the Tecnológico Sudamericano to study fashion design.
5. What types of designs of your own we will see in the Miami Beach International Fashion Week?
My brand Monica Campaña has always been known for being elegant, classic, feminine and is exactly what you will look in the clothes that make my collection.
This collection was designed and produced exclusively for the Miami Fashion Week. There are casual clothes like blouses, skirts, shorts, jackets, tailor cutting pants, cocktail dresses and evening gowns.
The color palette includes melon, blue, green, beige, black and yellow, all light colors. The materials are silk, chiffon, linen.
6. What was the inspiration for your creations?
Unlike my other collections, which have always been worked under a concept, this is different. I have nothing more than the concept that I have of a successful, professional, independent and feminine woman. It includes a collection of all kinds of items that this type of woman needs.
7. What is the name of your collection presented at the Miami Beach International Fashion Week?
The collection is “MC Lady.” I chose the name because a lady is an elegant woman that would wear my clothes and my initials are MC. This is my ideal look for all women. (FL)
