It's pretty amazing how art, music, design, and fashion all wrap into one or in this case, end up at the same event.
Fashion Stylist and Boutique Owner, Mariu Lacayo's mother - Mariu F. de Lacayo was the former manager of Ponte Vecchio and has been a noted artist and fashionista.
Maria Reneé Perez's son is sneaker-holic, DJ Killa Ka5 - who's also gifted in graffiti art.
Designer, Vicente Castellon was also spotted at the event and is also highly-recognized by his drawing skills from his fellow peers. In fact, Castellon hails from a family of artists as is designer, Shantall Lacayo. Vicente's father is a fountain pen drawer and Shantall's father is a well-known artist, Julio Quintero and her mother, Lauren Lacayo runs her own art gallery, Génesis.
My mother and award-winning abstract artist, Alicia Castrillo is definitely a risk-taker and loves color. Therefore, I've been trying to convince her to pull off some bold color-blocking and she did..raspberry red and arctic blue.
Did we inherit the artsy fashionista gene?
