Stitch Lab is back in town for the sixth edition of its highly-anticipated pop-up shop. Since its inception, the fashion incubator has brought exposure in the U.S. to hundreds of fashion designers from all across Latin America. Their continued efforts over the years, both through e-commerce and in-person, have springboarded these brands to success in new markets, introduced U.S. shoppers to a whole new world of fashion and, most importantly, supported the goals and dreams of the next generation of talent in Latin American fashion.
Stitch Lab will once again host its unique pop-up for three days with 40 new designers, continuing its partnership with the Miami Design District as their official sponsor and host. It will kick off with a private fashion show on Thursday, April 13th, and the consumer-facing pop-up will take place from Friday, April 14th to Sunday, April 16th at a new, street-facing retail space. In this edition, the participating designers come from Peru, Argentina, Colombia, Ecuador, El Salvador, Venezuela, Dominican Republic, Mexico and Brazil.
“We are thrilled to continue our mission to amplify the voices of female designers that carry a social and environmental conscience, produce top-quality pieces and offer a unique storytelling through their brands. For this year’s pop-up, we have curated a lineup that includes former and new indie brands to delight our Miami audience with phenomenal, one-of-a-kind finds,” Karina Rosendo, Founder & CEO of Stitch Lab
The pop-up is also excited to welcome international model, philanthropist and Miami icon, Isabela Grutman. Grutman will be participating in the event with her brand Rangel, a sustainable women’s and children’s resort fashion line. Other designer highlights include the social media sensation and Colombian style coach Laura Echiverria with her brand Lessons; Pink Filosofy, an eco-friendly brand co-founded by Johanna Ortiz and Adriana Arboleda; and, lastly, Amanda Dudamel, the first runner-up of Miss Universe 2023, will debut a capsule collection of scarves designed for social impact, as part of her ongoing commitment to uplifting underprivileged communities in Venezuela.
Stitch Lab is also honored to be announcing a new partnership – this time with PromPerú, a government agency that works to propel Peruvian designers internationally. All featured brands supported by this alliance practice sustainability, offering high-quality materials from the culturally rich, impactful textile industry of Perú.
Global leader in hair care,TRESemmé, is returning as a sponsor for the kick off fashion show and will also be participating throughout the weekend with an on-site activation at the event, offering hair touch-ups from their hair styling experts using products from their most recent collection, Pro Infusion collection for Fluid Hair.
