On today’s post, we bring you Patty Delgado of Hija de tu Madre,
a Latina fashion and accessories brand started from a simple idea of a jacket.
But we love Patty for so much more … read on to learn why!
What motivated you to start your business?
A little idea! I started with one jacket idea, and that boomed into other accessories and jacket designs.
What in life inspires you to create more of what you love?
My followers and customers are very inspiring and encouraging. They constantly support me and my vision, so they keep me going. And they remind me that my type of work is needed.
What is your biggest dream for your business and/or life?
To create a fashion business that lives longer than I do.
What is the largest hurdle you've had to overcome to get to where you are now?
There are hurdles everyday, but not having enough resources is a constant motif for my business. But you have to make the most of what you have.
What is one piece of advice you'd give women looking to step into your field?
Give yourself the opportunity to take a risk.
What do you do to reset and refresh when life feels heavy?
Turn off my phone. Literally. I feel so much better when I check out.
What is your favorite activity on days off?
No days off! But I enjoy dancing to some cumbias and having a michelada.
If you could hop on a plane right now where would you go and why?
Bangkok Thailand. I love Thai food and Buddhism.
Who would you invite to dinner? Frida Kahlo, Virgen de Guadalupe, or someone else that inspires you?
All of the above plus Beyoncé, Oprah, Celia Cruz, and Juan Gabriel
