Most of us grew up with dogs, cats or birds, didn’t we? I wonder any of you grew up with lions, tigers or Crocodiles?! Adriana Castro is the one who has such a unique experience! Castro is a beautiful sweetheart who was born in Colombia. Having spent most of her childhood with her father on his crocodile’s farm, Adriana was fascinated about being designing handbags and accessories with the exotic skins of these creatures. She knows crocodiles and she has the knowledge to “utilize and combine as much of the creature’s skin and textures as possible,” Adriana said.
After getting her Bachelor Degree from Purdue University, Castro continued her studies in Accessory Design at Miami International University and started her designer adventure. Castro’s designs were recognized by the public soon after her first collection, Amazonia, was launched. Her collection has been featured in WWD, Vive, Ocean Drive, Daily Candy, Vogue Latin America and many more. Last year, Castro won the Fresh Faces in Fashion award for Accessory Design from GenArt.
Adriana aims to make elegant crocodile bags and accessories that everyone can carry. She pays a lot of attention to quality control and always travels to Colombia, where the bags are made, to make sure every bag is in excellent condition. For the Fall collection, she will name each of her bag by a star of the constellation and will emphasize the use of metallic and night-sky deep blue.
