Culture is an imperative aspect of fashion. Without the different ethnicities, colors, sounds, and languages, fashion would not exist. Culture is the base of humanity; it defines who we are as people. It is what inspires the artists all over the world to create timeless masterpieces. It is the core that makes us unique.
At Estela, we celebrate culture, every single one, and in this issue, we want to celebrate yours.
