20 Hispanic and Latinx Designers to Know and Love

20 Hispanic and Latinx Designers to Know and Love

 

By Tori Lopez

Having grown up in predominantly white cities, it took me more years than I’d like to admit to fully embrace being Mexican. How this affected different aspects of my life varies, but in terms of fashion, this evolution pushed me to make an effort to seek out and support Hispanic and Latinx designers. And, let me tell you, this journey has brought me nothing but an immense amount of joy.


Upon discovering designers like Victor Barragán, Raul Lopez and Paula Canovas del Vas, I gained a renewed sense of pride. Over the years, I’ve watched these creative forces disrupt societal expectations and create forward-thinking, contemporary designs that still honor heritage and tradition.


As we kick off Hispanic Heritage Month, I wanted to share and celebrate some of my favorite Hispanic and Latinx designers, from up-and-coming names like Bailey Prado and Willy Chavarria to established forces in the fashion world like Gabriela Hearst and Manolo Blahnik. The diversity of their influences, techniques and aesthetics is a reflection of their wide range of cultures, upbringings and generations.
