Good evening guys,
As you know this season we have added to our website, the brand El Tocador de Victoria, and as we like to get to the bottom, we wanted to know more about what lies behind and we think that you would also like to know what and who are behind this signature.
Well, its creator is Zaida, many of you will surely know it already, I personally still did not have the pleasure of knowing it, but I did it through this screen, as I know many of you, and the truth was everything so fluid that it gives I like having people like that to work.
As I say, it’s people who add, do not subtract. And as soon as we proposed the idea of the interview he immediately answered me, despite the fact that I am sure he will be up to the task with the new season, which is a total success! CONGRATULATIONS.
Here I leave the little interview we did, and if you want to resolve any questions, do not cut, you can comment on the post and we will ask.
Could you tell us a little about the story of El Tocador de Victoria? How and where did it arise?
The Victoria Dresser was created almost 6 years ago. With the birth of my first-born, Victoria, I did not find the delicacy of the handmade item as in the past, as my grandmother taught me. I decided to practice and learn from myself. Garment after garment, I learned the art of weaving. Today I am still fascinated to see how from a ball of wool / cotton can arise authentic works of art, it seems magic. At night I love to relax by weaving jackets, hoods, booties ..
El Tocador is not only handmade, we also have our beautiful clothing line. Who knows me well knows that I am tenacious, very stubborn. I can spend hours, even nights, behind a sketch looking for perfection, my perfection.
A few years ago, we started a very small season full of love. Today, after 7 seasons, I look back and I can not be more grateful. I really enjoy my work.
Who are the people behind El Tocador de Victoria?
Although the company administrator is me, Zaida, we are a great family. I have the unconditional support of my husband, my little ones who accompany me on work trips and even in small business meetings, my mother, my sister. All of them participate and collaborate in an indispensable way.
There is also Teresa, who manages some points of sale, she helps me and she supports me absolutely.
Ana, our friend and our photographer. It is delivered in body and soul so that each catalog is a show.
Fate united our lives and now we form a perfect team.
Mission and objectives of it. Inspiration themes
I started in the world of children’s fashion without a mission, simply enjoying my creations, my work and letting myself go.
I love to improve, to learn, to grow gradually. «If you add a little to the little and do it often, it will soon become a lot.» – Hesiod. I love this phrase.
I think my biggest inspiration is my children. I look at them and a thousand ideas come up. I write down every little detail to create the garments later. When these become a total seasonal success, I almost cry with emotion!
To whom is El Tocador de Victoria addressed?
Our collections are aimed at the entire public. Mothers want (I include myself) to wear princes and princesses, but we are also aware of how fast they grow and what new clothes are left. Therefore, we opt for simple, versatile lines, full of quality at reasonable prices.
Last collection What have you inspired? Used materials..
Everything starts with an idea, a million annotations, designs that today, but not tomorrow. Illusions and disappointments. How many nights without sleep!
But there comes a day that everything fits, you link a model with another, you find the link of the collection that you lacked and then you think: «buff I already have it, I love it».
This new season, we have opted for Nature, which gives us the land and the sea. A caravan holiday and lots of fun.
Our kids have a great time and we with them, no doubt. We are a great family.
