While taking a moment to scroll through Instagram one day, I was attracted to a photo of a lovely woman wearing a natural flowing wrap style pant and a matching top that caught my attention. The outfit looked stunning on her, and I thought it would be perfect for my customers in Todos Santos at Desert Fox Baja.
I reached out to Mariana and Regina, the sister design team and founders of Paralia, based in Guadalajara, Mexico. I was impressed by their passion, dedication, incredible customer service, and beautiful designs. I placed an order immediately, it arrived very quickly, and truly my customers are as in love as I am!
This is how Mariana and Regina describe their inspiration, in thier own words, for Paralia...
Thier manifesto (en espanol)
"Buscamos crear aquello que realce el brillo que vive dentro tí."
"To seek to create that which enhances the brilliance that lives within you".
How beautiful. Que Hermoso.
