Alana Sola, Fashion Designer

What would you say the “scene” look is right now? 

I think it is more eclectic and individualistic mixing different vibes all at once. That can be striped, that can be boho mixed in with also the sports scene. It could be being influenced fashion wise from where you’re traveling. 

Do you think fashion has evolved so that individuality is more accepted now?

Absolutely. Fashion is giving a voice to a new generation while at the same time borrowing from the past making it a new “evolution” of what’s been seen before. 

What are your goals as a fashion designer?

To give a voice to my home country. I’m from Puerto Rico so I want to represent my roots.
