Who has inspired you in your life and why?
My family and ancestors are a huge inspiration to me. My mother loves family trees and quotes and one that I have never forgotten is ‘It Starts and Ends with Family.’ I was raised in Bermuda within a huge mix of strong, vibrant, colorful women. While they all provided some sort inspiration in my life, my sister and cousins stand out. Sharnelle, Shakira, Nadine, Jameka, Michelle, and ShaeVonne - we were all raised as sisters, living together, going to church together, dressing alike, taking music lessons, Girl Guides, dance classes - everything. They were an extension of me, but we all encouraged a sense of individuality. For example ShaeVonne loved sports and I remember rooting for her at her soccer games on the weekends. It was the start of my lifelong obsession with sisterhood. We had each others backs, even when we fought. We took care of each other, looked out for each other. Not to mention that most of them, along with my mother, planted the seeds of style within me. We had shopping trips to New York, I eagerly watched my mom shoe shop, I obsessed over Shakira’s bag collections. I stole my sisters clothes and imitated Michelle’s style. My mom and aunt Eyvette taught me how to sew and helped me make my prom dress. It all started with my family.

How did you turn your vision into reality?
I was raised with a core belief that anything was possible and was introduced to hard work at a young age. My first real job was at a dentist office, and I put in the work! I didn’t know much about the fashion industry except that it was where I wanted to be. From a very young age I remember telling my parents I was moving to New York one day. So, after college I packed my bags and tried to pave my way in this world. My first internship was at Yves Saint Laurent in the press office. I knew nothing, but I worked for free for almost a full year, learning from an amazing women who served as my mentor. It was a huge sacrifice but I soaked in as much information as I could and eventually was hired.

What did you want to be when you were growing up?
I assumed the only jobs in fashion were models, and designers. I had no understanding of anyone behind the scenes. So - I made clothes. Holiday outfits for my friends and I (with matching bags!), my prom dress, baby shower outfits. But, my parents did not agree to send me to a design school (which was a good move because I wasn’t very good at it). My last year of high school a teacher had us make a magazine and it opened my eyes to other career paths in the industry. When I got to college I still didn’t know what area of fashion I wanted to work in, which actually served me well because I’ve never felt ‘stuck’ or believed I could ONLY be a publicist or ONLY be an editor. It made me flexible to different ares of the industry, resilient to the pressures and open minded to applying my creativity to various roles and jobs.

Meet the new girls of #srStories New York

Lucia Echavarria is a Colombian designer based in New York. She is the founder of Magnetic Midnight, with a penchant for costume, cultural handicrafts, and aesthetic objects Lucia launched Magnetic Midnight in 2015. Her intricate designs stem from her passion for cultural history and tradition as reflected through dress and adornment.

 

Who has inspired you in your life and why?
I have always been inspired by beautiful handmade objects, and the artisans and craftsmanship behind each artifact. I think for this reason traveling to new places has always been a source of inspiration; discovering a culture’s history and tradition, particularly reflected through dress and adornment, has fascinated me since I was very young.
Colombia, where I’m from, has such beautiful and varied craftsmanship in all sorts of materials because of its regional, geographical, and ethnic diversity. Supporting local artisans and continuing these traditional techniques has always been something that was important to me, and through Magnetic Midnight I have had a chance to do so.

How did you turn your vision into reality?
I came up with the idea for Magnetic Midnight during a trip to Iran. I had just finished an internship at the Guggenheim in New York and was considering studying costume design, as I had always enjoyed making my own costumes and thought it would be a good way to combine art, history, culture and fashion in a creative and fun way. When I was in Shiraz, I visited the most beautiful mosque entirely adorned with intricate mirror mosaics. This sparked an idea I had of making a headpiece covered with mirrors and from that…. the stars must have aligned as the idea evolved into my first Magnetic Midnight collection, Persepolis!

What did you want to be when you were growing up?
I always wanted to be an artist but I quickly gave up on the idea when I realized drawing wasn’t my talent.
