This super fashion shero is an amazing “Miami’s top designer.” In 2007 Viviana won the CILA award for “Best Coordinate Moderate” in New York. Recently she was also awarded with a “Prêt-à-Porter Style” award at MBIFW.
She identified herself with the unforgettable super shero “Wonder Woman.” As a public figure, Viviana travels nationally and internationally promoting her brands: “Petit Pois by Viviana G,” “Viviana G Couture,” and this year her new brand, “Tee’s by Viviana G.”
Viviana uses her superpowers by bringing a complete awareness of who we are in Miami. “Customers love to hear ‘who, what, where’ and I will make sure to reflect our Miami Sunshine,” said Viviana. This beautiful super hero also promotes her line in every major fashion market week in the country and has established five permanent showrooms where she constantly promotes our Miami life-style, Passion and Flavor.
Lissette Rondon, Founder of Miami Fashion Spotlight, got an exclusive interview with this “Wonder Woman” super fashion shero, where she spoke about fashion in Miami, her lines “Made in USA”, her mission, and more.
LR- What do you think about fashion in Miami?
“I believe the most highlighted elements would be “Sexy and Hot.” This is what everybody expects to see when coming to our Magic City,” said Viviana. “We are a ‘Revolution of Cultures’ influenced by the hot weather and the beaches; it is a melting pot of styles and everyone brings their own flavor. I am on a mission to infuse a little more sophistication and ‘chicness’ to Miami by melting together my three best flavors: American Sportswear, European Sophistication, and last but not least our Hot Spanish Passion.”
LR- How many jobs does your company provide every year for our people in Miami?
“Permanently 25 full time employees inside the plant, but the company hires constantly the services of photographers, models, stylist, graphic designers; in high season we increment more workers and part timers as well, and of course not to forget our sales agents in Florida,” said Viviana.
LR- Our country is trying to rescue the economy making more products here in USA; are your designs “Made in USA?”
“Yes, absolutely! We are proudly “Made in Miami, USA” since January 2000; from the very beginning this was an important factor behind our Petit Pois brand and a key point for sales,” added Viviana.
LR- Could you define your mission with just 3 words?
“Design, project, succeed.”
