Claudia Estrada

As a Miami native under the label ClaudiaE, Claudia Estrada has her international background to thank for her unique designs. The designer, who is originally from Ecuador, is known for her line of brightly colored, youthful but sophisticated designs. Leggings are considered her signature piece, but the designer’s line also carries various dresses, skirts, and jumpsuits. Overall, her designs are considered classic but playful and can easily go from a day to night look. Her most notable dresses, the Cristina Dress and the Virginia Dress, are a mixture of sexy and sophisticated with airy fabrics and light patterns. Estrada also incorporated another popular trend into her line: the jumpsuit. Made from fabrics such as silk charmeuse, the Nina Jumpsuit exemplifies class while flirting with a fun design.
