10 Latin American Fashion Designers You Must Know

In 2022, the terms ‘Latin American’ and ‘Latino’ is less a statement about where you live and more about Latin heritage, the DNA of your upbringing. Indeed, the term ‘Latinx’ from the LGBTQ sphere has been championed as a more inclusive term encompassing individuals in the international diaspora of Latin American descent as well as Latin American people, and both the cultural and ethnic nuances of the heritage. At the helm of Hispanic clothing design are individuals like Manolo Blahnik, Carolina Herrera, and Oscar de la Renta – who paved the way for Latino designers in America to share their...
