DISCOVERED IN COLOMBIA (2): Clothing Designer Alina Moreno
Like all good discoveries, we bumped into clothing designer Alina Moreno just by chance earlier this week on our last day in Cartagena while looking to get our haircut.
Located on an atmospheric corner in the center of the old city, Moreno’s flagship boutique stocks her entire range of casual-yet-professional shirts, trousers and Ts made only for men.
The 32 year-old designer is Cartagena-born, but Italian-trained and her European background is evident in the quality of her fabrics and designs — all made in Colombia from the finest cotton and linen.
Especially fetching were her dress shirts — which are elegantly patterned and striped and cut slim (but not too slim) to the body, yet easy enough to wear in Cartagena’s tropical heat.
Check her out.
