Ariana Magana is the winner of the Student Designer Competition held during Latino Fashion Week 2009. Ariana was born in Los Angeles, California but moved to Chicago when she was still young. At an early age she was interested in the arts never missing a chance to take as many art classes as she could. She currently studies fashion design at the International Academy of Design and Technology.
She is a firm believer that less is more. There is an original simplicity. Her fabric choices are luxurious and give her designs a sophisticated feel. She designs for women who are not afraid of standing out. Her work can be described as chic, artistic, and modern.
As a bonus, the winning student designer presents their collection among well seasoned professional designers at the biggest Latino Fashion Week event: El Fin.
