HONORING HISPANIC HERITAGE MONTH THROUGH FASHION

To honor Hispanic Heritage Month, beloved designers Maygel Coronel, Jonathan Cohen, and PatBo are celebrated as proudly founded Hispanic brands through artfully crafted pieces we adore. Showroom Columbian founder Erica Hanks states "I want to be inclusive with my edit of Hispanic designers and celebrate the talents influenced by their cultures".

MAYGEL CORONEL

Modern, feminine swimwear designed for life in the sun defines Maygel Coronel’s eponymous label, which was launched in her native city of Cartagena, Colombia in 2017. Drawing on Latin American dress for inspiration, the founder teams the drama of puffed sleeves, tailored pleats and flattering gathers with balanced silhouettes and a sophisticated palette – an aesthetic honoured by the Pitch Prize at the Latin American Fashion Summit in 2019. Expect swimsuits, bikinis and dresses with striking tailored accents and flattering voluminous details, perfect for the beach and beyond.

 

JONATHAN COHEN

Jonathan Cohen is a women's ready-to-wear brand based in New York City. Floral prints took on a new dimension for Spring 2022 inspired by the film What Dreams May Come and its impressionistic, abstract depiction of otherworldly gardens. With sustainability weaving through all elements, the Jonathan Cohen woman values quality over quantity, the craftsmanship that goes into creating her garments, and when she spends money on a piece, she wants to make sure when she puts it on, she feels both unique and special.

 

PATBO

PatBO is a Brazilian brand by Patricia Bonaldi that captures the vibrant energy of South America through its artfully hand-embroidered RTW and swim. The richly detailed embroidery and bold prints that are a hallmark of the label are a perfect example of the brand's commitment to both technical expertise and boundless imagination. Rather than outsourcing this, Patricia Bonaldi established a school for the purpose of teaching local women this special craft.
