VANESSA GUCKEL - FOUNDER AND CREATIVE DIRECTOR
Vanessa is the founder and creative director of the CIHUAH brand. Originally from France, she has been living in Mexico for the past 9 years, and it was here that she was inspired to begin her own label of exclusive, designer garments. Trained at the National School of Architecture in Strasbourg, France and the School of Architecture and Faculty of Fine Arts in Seville, Spain, she worked for several reputable architectural firms in both France and Mexico before turning to fashion design. With the understanding that, much like a building, “clothes are the spaces in which the human body lives”, Vanessa´s designs reflect an interplay between architectural concepts and fashion, resulting in a unique and striking image.
CIHUAH comes from the Nahuatl word for “women”, recognizing and acknowledging the indigenous women who create traditional craft designs, their ancient knowledge and culture. The brand pays tribute to the basic geometric patterns of indigenous Mexican clothing. CIHUAH garments reflect the design and pattern of Indigenous clothing, respecting their basic geometry while creating a contemporary look.
CIHUAH provides a range of options, from basic items to iconic pieces, reinvented classics and trend items. All pieces are a sophisticated vision in white and black, designed with an obsessive attention to the straight line and perfection; an exercise of confrontation between the line and the human figure. Architectural theory and techniques are applied, on a small scale, to each garment, using: geometry, proportion, aesthetics, construction-deconstruction, symmetry-asymmetry, balance-imbalance.
CIHUAH's ambition is to propose and investigate, through experimentation, a theoretical discourse on a new way of living the human body. Approaching to fashion design with architectural elements which make our physical space.
A basic wardrobe composed as the little black dress, but also reassessing the garment giving new uses and functions, all with a touch of design.

Marika Vera was established in 2010 as a luxurious lingerie brand, designed by stylist and fashion designer Marika Vera.
"My hand made silk lingerie was sold in small boutiques in London, LA, NYC and Sidney since season one. However I continued to work in the advertisement industry as a fashion stylist and thought of the brand as a passion hidden by a hobby.
In 2014, after 4 years of half being in the business, I decided to grow the brand by launching a more accessible and commercial line of timeless designs of lingerie and bodysuits, that proved to be an amazing success in the Mexican Market specially in Mexico City.
My designs are made for the modern woman of today who has a natural sensuality. I believe that femininity and female empowerment can work hand in hand -.
Our design process takes place in our Atelier and showroom located in the heart of Mexico City. The production is made 40% in house and 60% in well paid small run family businesses around the city.
I personally pay special attention to the softness of the textiles I choose always follow a delicate and minimal line of design, without compromising the erotic element of the garments. I only chose high quality fabrics and trimmings. For me, team leadership, stubbornness, innovation in design, quality, fit and fast response to a customer demand, have being the key elements for the company success."
Marika Vera is a Mexican fashion designer that studied at the Istituto Marangoni, London. Her graduation collection landed her a job as a senior designer at the pret a porter brand Vanessa Bruno, Paris in 2008.
Marika Vera designs today sell in more than 30 small run independent boutiques in Mexico, Australia and USA. In 2017 the brand opened their first flagship store in Polanco Mexico City neighborhood.

Hello! I’m a Pastry Chef from Ukraine. I’m 28 years old. I started to bake like most of housewives, with some simple cakes and pies, but it quickly turned into my passion. I graduated from University of Architecture and Design and worked as an architect-designer and a 3D visualizer.
It just became more interesting to me at some point. I liked what I was doing as an architect, but now I’m more interested in Patisserie. From the moment I got into Patisserie I decided to try to add something new into it. I realized that the appearance is as important as taste.
I tried to model my own moulds and print them with 3D printer and I liked what I got. I want to try more and more in Patisserie and I can’t stop, I’m studying, modeling and baking. I prefer simple plain geometric shapes like cube, triangle and sphere. I like black colour, as well as red and white. I like sharp straight lines. I hope you will like what I do. Contact me if you have any questions or suggestions, if you need my permission to use content, images or videos.
