    Daniela Gutierrez Arreguin

As part of a collaboration with fashion designer Daniela Gutierrez, I designed a pair of high heels that would go along with her fashion garment collection "Building Yourself." The collection explores personal ideas of identity and being able to find yourself.

The design draws inspiration from traditional Mexican piñatas to convey a Mexican Identity, a central theme in the collection.

The project consisted of design, patterning, and production.

I am a multi disciplinary industrial and fashion accessory designer with professional experience in applied projects, design studios and corporate environments.
As a young creative I am humble and always seek for opportunities to learn and grow. I like challenges and enjoy being a critical thinker. I enjoy working in teams and hold myself to high standards. I believe in design and its potential to change the world for the better.
Some of my interests include sports, sustainability, space exploration, energy, footwear, fashion and history.
