I was recently contacted by designer Virginia Blanca Arrisueño about her line, De*Nada.
Virginia got her BFA at the University of Maryland (Go Terps!), and she's received many awards for her talent and skill, both creative and technical, including the Sadat Art for Peace Award -- delivered to her by Nelson Mandela!
Though she initially started out selling handbags and t-shirts, the collection grew to the scarves, gloves and hats that we can see now on her site and in stores.
She gets her inspiration from her Peruvian heritage and combines that with contemporary, timely styles to create a truly unique experience. To be honest, I was truly excited by what I saw on the site -- ingenious designs. As a scarf collector, I was in heaven! My favorites are the eternal roped, eternal knit and challah braid scarves. I can only imagine how warm and cosy they'd be come winter (which isn't too far away for us).
The newest collection is going to be on sale online very soon, so keep an eye out for De*Nada!
