In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, we wanted to take un poco de tiempo to feature some fashion and cosmetics brands that are paving the way for creative, cultural expression. The following 4 brands on the rise are created by hispanic women for la cultura.
Spanglish streetwear with Cali vibes.
Founder of Viva La Bonita, Rachel Gomez, grew up in a Mexican-American home in Los Angeles during the 90’s and you can see the influence its had on her through her brand. Viva La Bonita’s bold, iconic, and stylish street-chic style will have any Latina proud to show off their roots.
Mexican-culture clothing made for confident mujeres.
Patty Delgado founded Hija de Tu Madre to celebrate “the beautiful mess that is being Latinx.” Her American classic denim and Mexican inspired staple pieces capture the cultural crossroads of the Hispanic American.
This #laborday I’m grateful for the emotional labor from my fellow mujeres. 💕 📸 @aaronsolo A post shared by Hija de tu Madre™ (@hijadetumadreshop) on
