    1. Hi, Florencia! It's nice to meet you!
      I'm sorry I can't speak Spanish so I replied with English.
      I'm an economic student, not a designer. But, I'm so in love with fashion and I was making this blog because it's hard to find a fashion dictionary with pictures. I hope you enjoy my blog!
