Latin American fashion has a very significant place in the industry for its colours, silhouettes, textures and creative processes. Although Latin America’s reference points include brands such as Oscar de la Renta and Carolina Herrera, these are just a small sample of the creative power that inhabits the continent. Here are 10 Latin American brands you should know. 

From Tach Clothing, well known on Instagram for its colourful knitwear, to Barragán for its experimental style that has conquered New York. Of course, MOZH MOZH, which works with materials of Peruvian origin and local artisans, and Selva Negra, which respects the zero kilometre, also had to be there. In accessories, we opted for Mola Sasa and Hernán Herdez who collaborate with Colombian indigenous communities for their collections.
