Clothes for a Cause: Brands for a Better World

Clothes for a Cause: Brands for a Better World 


Ethical consumption is a responsibility we all bear, but you don't have to sacrifice style for sustainability. From vegan leather purses to fair trade cotton, there are great brands offering sustainable products at great prices, so you can both look great and feel great. 

Bags - No Leather Needed 

Leather? I haven't even heard of her! Vegan leather or "pleather" is an eco-friendly alternative to animal based leathers and animal skins. It's just as stylish, comes in more colors, and best of all more affordable than animal leather.  Here are some great vegan leather bags and shoes handpicked by Hermosaz for you.

Cotton is lightweight, durable, easy to clean, and most importantly one of the most sustainable forms of fabric.

​Hermosaz most wanted: What shoppers are buying this month


This season has been full of new trends and our Hermosaz have been looking for the best pieces to add to their closet!

Starting with hair accessories, you've probably noticed that all the 'IT girls' are wearing these pins and stones to complete their hair looks. Denim jackets have also been everywhere, it is always good to have a couple of different colors and styles as they can be combined with any outfit, literally!

A pair of swimsuits should be a priority in your summer list! Time to show off that summer body on your next vacation! You have to bring your favorite bags to your vacations too, obviously! So our brilliant Latina fashion icons have put together a list that you won’t be able to resist!

Finally, our Latin blood has spoken and that is demonstrated by the fact that our Hermosaz are often looking for red dresses! Is it because red looks incredible in our Caribbean skin tone or simply because it represent how passionate we are?

What do you like about being Latina?

The passion that we carry in our blood. The strength to continue forward. The way we fight for what we want and never give up. We have seen a lot of poverty, a lot of desolation, and that lowers us a bit to the ground, it makes us understand what is valuable.

What’s something about you that people would be surprised to know?

A couple of years ago I went to school and while putting together a presentation I swallowed a pin, a needle and I had it lodged in my throat for about 6 hours. I almost had surgery, but at the end I was fine, lucky. 

What are your favorite colors and outfits that make up most of your closet?

Colors: Black and white. Sets: Leather jacket and hats. 

What trends are big in your city?

Fanny packs and Texas boots are very trendy.

What is your favorite brand/designer? What do you like about that brand?

I do not follow designers that much. I pick my clothes by the style I like, not because of the designer. Most of my clothes are from Zara. I love it because they always have the latest trends and accessible prices. 

Which actresses or models do you believe have the best style?

Hailey Rhode Bieber, but I also love Jennifer Aniston in the 90s. 

Where do you see yourself in 5 years and what are your goals?

That is a difficult question, in this career everything changes quickly, but one of my objectives is to be in a movie or series.
