Ava summed up the “Rica” woman, as a lady who is rich in lifestyle, rich in food, love, sex and experience…her quality of life is “Rich”. Ava’s musical influences derive of New wave, punk & rock and also her style muse Jessica 6. “I love to listen to jazz on Sundays, go to a nice brunch and listen to old dance music.” It was a pleasure interviewing designer, Ava Sanjurjo, she is an active member of the community always giving back to her childhood neighborhood, having grown up in the Bronx, Ava always makes It a point to empower the youth in her community, she recently donated bicycles to children in the Bronx. “There are many children in need, my mother has always been an active member of the community, whether she is planting trees or donating her time at a charity event, she is always giving back.”
We love this swimsuit called knots, so hot & fresh, the concept is ideal for the contemporary bikini fashionista. We favorited this look at the Rica Pop-Up Shop, the knotted look is risqué, we absolutely love this adventurous look in red.
