“No matter how a piece of clothing looks, it cannot be considered beautiful if, in producing it, the environment is destroyed or people are exploited. When deciding on what to wear, we all have an obligation to consider how it’s made and the impact that process has on the planet and its people.”
“Of course there are times when it gets stressful, but ultimately I love what I do.” Vicky has been with Anteliza since the very beginning, and she’s been working in the industry since she was seventeen. She went to school to learn how to sew and got her first job right from there. She’s always really enjoyed it. She works mostly in making the samples—which are the dresses that are produced before the design of the dress is finalized—to make sure all the kinks are out of the design and that the pattern is the best it can be. The Paloma is her favorite dress to work on. Her daughter, Nora, started working for the shipping department recently. She loves having her daughter here and getting to see her throughout the day; it makes coming to work that much more comfortable.
