Turning ‘C’est Beau’ into ‘C’est Bio:’ From Mexico’s Roma to New York’s Chelsea with Cihuah’s Franco-Mexican designer
Jet setting from a fashion show in Punta Mita to a pop-up store in la Colonia Roma neighborhood of Mexico City, founder of the fashion brand CIHUAH, Vanessa Guckel, also flew last week to New York where ethical bags designer Ingrid Bruha had invited her as a guest of honor for a special Mexican night.
With her blond and curly hair, Guckel has lived for 10 years in Mexico, a country where women are more likely to have dark and straight hair. Born in France, Guckel is an architect turned eco-fashion designer. She recently received praise for creating a fully bio-degradable garment that can dissolve over time when plunged in water.
