My name is Valeria Amaral. I was born and raised in Miami, Florida with a hispanic background :)). My mother is Colombian and my father is Cuban. My international mix has really helped me develop a great interest in different cultures.I have always been fascinated by fashion. As stated by the fabulous Blair Waldorf in Gossip Girl "Fashion is the most powerful art there is. It is movement, design, and architecture all in one. It shows the world who we are and who we'd like to be." I love to express myself by my style. I love teaching others about fashion, trends, what works, and what doesn't. I graduated from Miami International University of Art and Design with a bachelors degree in Fashion Design. I have worked in the fashion industry for over 10 years and I LOVE it! I love how it is always fast paced and ever changing. Keeping up with trends and fashion news is what I do on a daily basis. Blogging is something I love to do.
