Last week, new Nicaraguan designer, Yaosca of Turquesa Boutique presented her collection at a private New York residence.
Inspired by the waves, surfers and nature of San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua, new fashion and accessory designer Yaosca brings a unique mix of style to the globetrotting beach babe and offers a wide selection of the most desirable and coveted vintage clothing and accessories as well as unique designer pieces.
The guests described her pieces to be authentic, unique, conversational, trendy, hippie, natural, and colorful.
Our special guest, Nicaraguan model/actress Maria de Jesus, described the collection as organic and boho and perfect for the summer. Her piece of choice, the metal headband. Follow Maria on Twitter @marypoppings
