Once upon a time, a brave, little girl with lovely goldilocks from Southern Europe began to dream big, wide, and far. One day she packed her suitcase and left home to discover the world with her own eyes.
She admired the different cultures, flavors, scents, and traditions from each country she stepped foot in during her extensive journey. But it was fashion that became her infatuation. She learned that people use clothing to express themselves through design, colors, and fabrics. Not only do the garments differ according region, but with the attitudes people carry with them. She found that people wear their history, their culture, their being and their soul on their shoulders. She realized why prominent fashion designers get inspired by traditional outfits. She saw reverence and honor in Japan's silk and satin; she discovered joy and warmth in the wool from Peru. She felt the magic and spirituality in the embroidery from India. Her heart would never be the same.
As if these epiphanies weren't enough, during her odyssey, she also found love in the most wonderful and supportive man. Their love gave birth to Theodore – 'Theo' – a vigorous little boy with golden hair. Theo inspired her in the many ways that only a mother can grasp. Children grow up so fast, and she wanted to be a part of her child's confidence, attitude, and creativity. While dressing Theo, she would tell him marvelous tales inexorably intertwined with stories from her travels around the world. This is how the idea of Hera + Hermes came to life.
"After so many years in the corporate world, I realized that now I have the opportunity in life to make some real changes. I decided to give all I have - my work ethic, my experience, my passion for fashion mixed with my travels around the world, I took advantage of connections that I had made through the years and created a business that we decided to call Hera + Hermes | Kids Fashion Store (or how we internally call it "Your Magic Sailing Wardrobe"). Inspired by Greek Mythology, Hera because she was the Goddess of Marriage and Childbirth and Hermes, the messenger of the Gods with the wings attached to his hat and sandals."
