LR- Tell us a little about your new collection Evolution?
 “‘EVOLUTION’ is a collection of fashion-forward designs in gold, leather, and silver with intricate details of diamonds, sapphires, rubies, and semi-precious stones. I called my collection “EVOLUTION” for the turn that I am taking with my personal style, materials, and my love for nature.”
LR- How did you feel making debut at the runway of MBIFW with Viviana G. from “Petit Pois?”
“It was an honor to collaborate with one of the most successful fashion designers, and also a ‘Prêt-A-Porter Style Award’ winner.  I was proud as a designer and as a Venezuelan to share the runway with our beloved Viviana G,” said Hamilton.
LR- Is it true that when you design, you think about “Real Women?”
“Yes, I love designing one-of-a-kind pieces for all those hard-working women that still find their way to be fashionable,” added Hamilton. “I had designed for ‘movers and shakers’ women in Miami, such as Beth Sobol, Founder & President of Miami Fashion Week; Veronica Simpson, Film Producer and Celebrity Chef, Jackie Salas.”
LR- What is your next project?
“I am designing my next collection to be launched at Boston Fashion Week,” said Hamilton.
LR- Could you define your work and yourself with just 3 words?
