Latinoamérica Habla, the Contest that
Empowers the New Talents
of Latin America

Classified by Inexmoda as the first step to advance in the career as a designer

Cotton is the main character of Latinoamérica Habla 2017

Inexmoda and COTTON USA™ unite in this initiative that spotlights the young talent of Latin America, with cotton as the main actor.

“The main objective of this united effort with Inexmoda is to show how design, style, and fashion originate in the cotton fiber. COTTON USA™ believes that this regional initiative represents the link between what cotton has meant in the life of its consumers, with a designer behind the scenes of each garment and brand. This is another way of showing how the United States cotton is a main player on a worldwide level in the fashion industry”, affirms Julisa Valenzuela, Marketing and Service Manager of the Cotton Council International for the Andean Region.
