The young talented model Lina Mayorga has won the 7th Isko I-Skool Media Mention Prize. Made in Bogotá , Colombia, she is a progressive vegan fashion designer now based in New York City.
She graduated from Parsons The New School of Design and has worked with other brands, including Calvin Klein, Victoria’s Secret, for her own brand since 2018. Her own brand, Lina Mayorga, offers clothes made with organic, recycling or up-cycled materials and designed with zero-waste techniques, and doesn’t include leather, fur, or silk.
The main inspiration for her outfit comes from my series named “Cross Paths.” Cross Paths is not about separating the North, the South, the West or the Southeast. Cross Paths is about unity, about that middle ground on our one planet where and when we accept the variety of options, the versatility of styles, the acceptance of opinions and always bearing in mind that we are all connected.
