As a designer, Zayra Estrada gets inspired by everything that surrounds her. She like to challenge herself and create garments with the least thing you could ever imagine using. She likes for her designs to have an extra meaning, to have a history behind them, and to help women love their second skin (clothing) and use them as a tool to conquer the world.
