HOUSTON, TX (AUGUST 20, 2009) – Puerto Rican born and formerly Miami based fashion designer Julia Bellaflores fell in love with a Texas cowboy and now all the women in Houston can celebrate and thank him.
The fashion designer, who for years dressed women in Puerto Rico and Miami, has opened her atelier in Houston, close to the Galeria and River Oaks areas so well known by fashion seekers in the fourth largest city in the United States. If you are not in Houston, you can still visit her on the web at http://www.JuliaBellaflores.com or visit one of her trunk shows.
The designer, former president of Promoda, Inc., the Fashion Professionals Association of Puerto Rico, has had her designs displayed internationally at acclaimed events like the Expo in Seville, Spain, the American Women Wear Exhibition in New York, and other venues in Miami, Maryland, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, and in most of Latin America. She plans to continue her active participation in supporting up and coming fashion professionals around the world and has already started rounding up allies for this cause in the Houston area.
Her designs are eclectic. To some, she is the quintessential classic designer; to others, she is an innovator who combines textures and colors in a bold and unexpected manner. Either way, all who own one of her designs agree that her real passion for fashion is seen in the detail and the high quality of her work and her choice of materials. Those who own an original from Julia Bellaflores will find on their garment her personal signature in a tiny damask-style flower, hand embroidered in silk thread as proof of her attention to detail.
The designer is also working on her new prêt-à-porter collection for 2010 and will be doing trunk shows in Puerto Rico, Miami, and New York starting in November. In the near future, there is a line of shirts for men that range from Hawaiian to Filipino barong style dress shirts and its Latino guayabera version.
Visit the designer at her new atelier on 11500 NW Freeway, Suite 624, Houston, Texas 77092.
