Shooting day with the winner of Nolcha Fashion Week Raffle. Veronica Cruz
First of all, congratulations for becoming the winner of the Angradema shoes we raffled during Nolcha Fashion Week and thank you for accepting modeling for us with your brand new shoes!
We would like to know a bit more about you. What can you tell us?
Thank you, it was such a thrill to be the winner of the gorgeous Angradema shoes!
I moved to New York City with my husband last January- by way of Arizona- and have been loving our time settling in! I find life here to be constantly inspiring, exciting, and stimulating- especially for those of us with an interest/obsession in fashion, styling, and media. Almost immediately upon moving here, I connected with some really great, like minded people. I have since started working on creating my own blog and have gotten to participate in and attend some amazing local fashion events, including Nolcha Fashion Week. It's been such a wonderful experience. I am having a blast..and the adventures just keep coming!
The raffle you finally won lasted two days during Nolcha Fashion Week: the day of the runway and the day of the bloggers & media brunch. When did you meet us? How was your experience talking to Beiñ’s team? Did you expect becoming our winner?
I first met your team at the runway show, where I was drawn to the promotion for airfare to Spain, as it is one of my dream destinations. The girls and I chatted about our wanderlust and passion for international travel, a topic I can talk about for hours. When I first saw Bein set up at the media brunch, the first thing that caught my eye were the shoes- I even took a picture with them! Of course I signed up for the raffle but never expected to win. The first time I actually win a drawing and the prize happens to be a pair of shoes I had already fallen in love with!
Once you were selected as the winner of these shoes, we contacted you in order to get your measurements as the shoes were going to be handmade FOR YOU! Moreover, we went to give you your new shoes in person. How was the whole experience with us? Did you like the bag Beiñ’s team hand-painted for you?
The entire experience was surreal- from the moment the announcement was made to getting them delivered in person- it felt so intimate. The delivery and hand painted bag was such a lovely and personal touch- it made my handmade shoes feel all the more special. All these little details are what really made my experience with Bein so exceptional.
Then, next surprise: you would be modelling for us and the designer! Tell us where did Beiñ’s team take you for the shooting and how did you like it?
I loved it! We met at the Highline- one of my favorite New York spots- and got to take pictures around the Chelsea area. I felt like Carrie Bradshaw for the day- posing and modeling my new favorite shoes in the middle of NYC... every girls dream, right?
Which of the designs in our website are your 3 top picks (apart from your fantastic shoes, of course)?
Anything by Beatriz Penalver. I love the white bell sleeve dress featured on their lookbook!
And I know I would live in Taller's silky fringes for summer, as well as Red & Rouge's floral turbans.
Any style you are missing in our website that you would like to get a hand on?
I would just love to see Bein continue to showcase and support independent designers who are committed to a higher level of craftsmanship. It is really exciting to see Spanish designers go global and have such a presence in NYC! Quality and talent are meant to be admired in every language and culture.
How would you describe fashion from Spain?
Luxurious, sleek, and modern but with a nod to rebellion. Sophistication with touches of romance.
How likely are you to recommend Beiñ’s store and designers to your friends and family? And how likely are you to become one of our customers?
Very! I've already shared some of Bein's links and posts on my personal social media sites, as well as mentioned my own unique experience with them to everyone I know. It is something I will always treasure
