Fashion, Empowerment + The Beauty they Produce

On my latest trip to my beautiful island, I met with local designer Veronika Pagan to talk a bit about what it's like designing for all body types, what she wants women to feel when they wear her line and, most importantly, to laugh.

Thanks to her and the beautiful team of helpers who braved the intense heat, we produced some of my favorite boudoir / fashion images. Perhaps it was the setting in Old San Juan, or the perfect styling by Veronika, but I'm eternally grateful for this experience. These pictures are engraved in my heart!

Ps. I challenge you to find a Puerto Rican who doesn't speak with as many hand gestures as we do.
