New York Latin Fashion Week - Keidy Amara - Colombian Designer

VIVE Katerin was photographer was on hand at Latin Fashion Week for a collection of runway shows from Latino designers based both in the United States and in Latin America.  One of my favorite designers at Latin Fashion Week was Keidy Amaya.  Ms. Amaya is a Colombian designer, who bases her designs on traditional Mantas Guajiras inspired by the art of the indigenous Wayuu people from La Guajira, Colombia. The flowing garments are feminine and sexy, and Amaya makes use of many different colors and textures that combine into a collection that ranges from formal to casual. As someone of Colombian heritage, I'm very pleased to see the level of talent in fashion design coming from Colombia.
