Giovanna Campagna and Cloclo Echavarria,
Colombian fashion designers have enjoyed a prolonged spotlight of late, largely thanks to this duo. Cousins Giovanna and Cloclo (the former based in New York; the latter, London) founded CREO Consulting, an incubator dedicated to the expansion and support of Latin talent in 2015.
GO TO HOLIDAY PARTY OUTFIT?
C.E: If I am in Bogota where it is a little chilly, my go-to outfit is a velvet pajama set by Piamita or a knitwear set by Pepa Pombo. I love how chic sets look and how comfortable they are—perfect for holiday meals!
G.C: When I head to Cartagena to spend New Year's with my family in Colombia, it's all about being comfortable. You need to dress for a late night of dancing! I'll choose a printed dress by ISOLDA or Piamita, and jewelry from my aunt Chiqui Echavarria's store in town, Casa Chiqui.
FAVORITE HOLIDAY TRADITION
G.C: My family's annual Christmas party at our home uptown. It's a chance for all the generations to mix and my mother always books a salsa band to keep the party going late!
BEST GIFT EVER RECEIVED
C.E: It is a hard choice between my Hunting Season croc backpack and a set of photographs by my uncle, Juan Manuel Echavarria.
