About Me

"There is an undeniable factor in Fashion that captivates my heart. Could it be that it has the ability to transform you inside and out, or a media that allows you to build armor against the weather, or an artistic outlet in which you can pour out your creative juices in an aesthetic manner? Feeling good in your own skin has an unbeatable value."

Ines Antigua was born in Dominican Republic. She started to show her passion for clothing as young as 4 year old. Her mother recalls Ines changing at least five times a day just for the sake of changing her look. 
 
Today, Ines Antigua has a Bachelor Degree of Fine Arts in Fashion Design from Massachusetts College of Art and Design. She also minored in Fiber Arts. "I love what I do. My interest in Fashion gears towards Couture and Costume Design. I enjoy making extravagant designs that people can’t turn their eyes from. On the other hand I enjoy twisting and creating new things. I heard a teacher say once that everything has been invented. I disagree. I believe there is still much to be discovered, learned and fabricated. My vision is to create the new and innovate this fantasy that we like to call Fashion. We need to keep moving forward.”
