Shop Modern Latina became an idea when I saw a store in Los Angeles was appropriating and selling my cultures huaraches for a hefty price.
I then decided to build relationships with artisans in my mother's hometown and became good friends with huarache makers. Such good friends, that 2 years later, here we are, with an online store.
I not only love taking part in the design process, I also love that I get to share my culture and modernize it in ways that others can wear them too. (Hence, where the name Modern came from).
Also, I continue to fully support my artisan friends and keep my prices reasonable and feasible for everyone.
Thank you for helping me break glass ceilings and letting this Latina live her dream!
