Back to Laura’s Career Life
This was quite a process for Laura, at the time when you like fashion, everyone tells you go study fashion design, but she was not attracted to designing fashion, that was clear to her. It was in her degree of Visual Merchandising, when Laura started projects where she had to create elements that would ‘attack a public’, so that they would buy a fashion garment, There Laura saw that communicating fashion was her thing, later she discovered everything that was behind the digital world in fashion and it was incredible.
“I have not been the type of girl who since I was little loved fashion and always knew that I wanted to dedicate myself to it, over time I was rediscovering, learning and observing. And although discovering my passion took a while, now I am more than determined. Advertising, public relations and the digital world are my great passions within the fashion sector.” says Laura.
Last year, Laura studied PR and organization of fashion events in a great school in Madrid, it was unbelievable, especially her teachers were workers in the sector. In addition, she was fortunate to be able to work in a leading Retail company in the market.
These practices that have lasted 6 and a half months, it has been a dream for her.

In addition, she has always received words of motivation and gratitude from her bosses, something that is appreciated because they value you.
All this growth has been added to the fact that this same year Laura started her professional profile on social networks, which became a hobby, is now her job. In her profile she shares her vision of fashion, her personal growth, and a little about her lifestyle.
“I am one of those who think that anything can inspire you about someone or something and that is what I try to make insoir with anything that surrounds my life, but always giving an extra point of importance to fashion.”
“Starting my personal page was not easy, but it has helped me further define who I am, and who I want to be, Showing myseff on social networks, I have gained security that I did not have before. I have stepped out of my comfort zone and I have learned many things.” says Laura.

Back to shoes
What’s your understanding of “Sustainable lifestyle” and “ecofashion”?
I think that in these last years my buying behavior has changed, every time I prioritize quality more than, quantity, and I also think a lot more if I need something, ‘or how much I will last before buying it. On the other hand, now before buying something I see if itis respectful to the environment, if it has had a sustainable manufacturing process or if the materials are recyclable or natural. These appearances are very important to me now.
I think that for brands these sustainable aspects are good publicity, since they say a lot of good things about the brand. In addition, more and more people are opting for sustainable brands.
What type of shoes and outfit would you like to wear? Is there any difference between what you wear at work and what you xear in daily life?

I have used your sandals, many times, to work, to go to run errands, to go out to dinner … They are comfortable, it is for me its most remarkable aspect.
