Sandra Baquero is a native of Colombia, who is based in New York City. Her collections are best described as cruise or resort wear and are entirely made in the U.S. Each Sandra Baquero collection offers seasonless styles, with a comfort and practicality that can be worn from day into evening. Influenced by her latin background, culture and keen eye for design, each collection incorporates a wonderful mix of vibrant colors and prints.
The Sandra Baquero philosophy is to celebrate women's sense of adaptability and versatility. Her signature Versatile Wrap Dress, which can be worn at least 12 different ways, is a true embodiment of that playful, sexy yet sophisticated woman. Sandra often works with knit fabrics and always creates designs that complement all body types and sizes . . . allowing every woman to feel great about herself!
My first full knitting project was a dress I made for myself. I wore the dress on a Sunday afternoon to the “Parque Central.” The dress was a hit! In our tradition families would dress up and gather in the Square Sunday afternoons after church. To this day I tingle in delight. Soon I began to create pieces for my brothers and sisters. I think of this period as the happiest of my life, the joy of creating beautiful and powerful pieces straight out of my hands!
Over the years I have discovered the deeper meaning of Doña Maria Luisa’s teachings. A knitted piece of clothing out of the hands of a “Master Knitter” has the power to transform the life of a person, to reveal the deepest beauty of a person. A Master Knitter is an artist, not just a crafts person. Knitting is deeply spiritual. Knitting is liberating, removes blockage and opens new paths for growth, experience and beauty. Knitting is a meditation and through meditation the self is focused, gathering power and strength.
I design knitted pieces of clothing for women on the path of freedom. I design knitted pieces for women who seek to fully realize themselves, to expose their deeper beauty to the world.
