She braids her hair everyday as a Feminist Manifesto that resulted from her involvement in creating the first Mexican Delegation for the Women’s Forum for Economy and Society in France, presided by Salma Hayek.

She launched her line of scarves in October 2018, which she calls ‘Canvas’ given that this hair-accessory has given her the power to paint her own reality by having multiple alter-egos.

Among her most recent projects are ‘Once Upon a Canvas’, an interactive art installation that took place at Raw Pop-Up during Art Basel 2018 where she had mirror conversations with strangers as she braided their hair and explained how visual cues and daily-intentions have an immense power to shape self-perception.

The knot is an intention. Every day, as I make it, I look myself straight in the eye and commit to helping another woman rise.It has become addictive, and the more I help others rise, the more I’m helped by others.

She has worked with brands such as Chanel, Valentino, The Webster, Tory Burch, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Alice and Olivia, Vizcaya, Isabel Marant, Citi Bank, and The Dalí Museum, and has been featured as a style icon in Elle USA, Allure, Nylon, W Magazine, Vogue México, In Style Latam, Miami Magazine, Indulge Magazine,the cover of Brickell Magazine, Racked and Who What Wear, among other media.

She also consults for brands who want to enter the Miami market. She has worked with Isabel Marant, Go Daddy and MasterCard Latin America and International among others.
