& fashion insider
As a non-stop traveler myself, I decided to create the service I would love to use and miss every time I arrive to a new city: a local expert with a professional eye for fashion, that can guide me to my favorite spots, even if I am running on a short schedule!
I have been working actively in the fashion field for the past 10 years in New York, Paris, Italy and Madrid as national consultant for Victoria’s Secret in Spain and southern France, editor of the leading children’s fashion online magazine Charhadas, at the PR relationships department of beauty brand L’Oreal Paris and at KCD Worldwide in Paris and Milan, organizing fashion shows and parties for clients such as Gucci, Bottega Venetta, Alexander McQueen or Balmain.

Throughout my career I have also collaborated as a freelance fashion stylist and street style photographer for magazines such as the Spanish edition of several Rolling Stone, Cosmopolitan and Vanidad.
This broad-based fashion background and expertise, added to my innate “treasure hunting” curiosity seeking for the trendiest boutiques, coolest restaurants or best vintage in every city (specially those that are not so easy to find) pushed me to create The Luxurista with the intention of selecting personally the best of the best for each of our clients so that they can live a totally customized experiences in any of our destinations.
