On the West Coast Festival Tour, Buena Onda had the opportunity to set up venue at the Day-N-Night Festival in Anaheim, California at Angel Stadium. This was a Hip Hop Festival and the first one of its kind that Buena Onda has done. The colorful Mochilas and Moroccan Bags definitely stood out amongst the majority of vendors at Day-N-Night. The Buena Onda Lifestyle Brand was accepted very well at this festival . Not to mention we did a bag give away for the attendees that followed Buena Onda on Instagram (and we just picked a winner!).
In between one festival and another we stopped in Lincoln, Nebraska. On the next Buena Onda stopped by the Beer Fest at "The Bay", which includes a skatepark and a clothing store. They also support the non-profit organization "Skate for Change" (SFC), which is dedicated to youth empowerment and helping communities through action.
This Café has a charming atmosphere and probably the best coffee you can find around Lincoln. Make sure to visit! We thought it was the perfect setting for our one of a kind Buena Onda Mochilas.
Buena Onda is looking for some inspiration in Morocco. In the Le Jardin Majorelle in Marrakech. The design and architecture in this culture is so amazing. Stay tuned for more awesome photos from Buena Onda and the Wayuu People.
The Buena Onda spotlight is on Maria Paula Dangond Arteta. She is our newest model at Buena Onda and she truly is one of a kind. Read her story below:
"I live in Barranquilla, Colombia, a city dreamed by those who haven't seen it, and never forgotten by those who have. In Barranquilla, you will meet happiness face to face.
I currently studying Fashion Marketing and communication in Lasalle College, so I can build a strong foundation for my professional journey. However, I expect to enrich my knowledge with other more specific disciplines within Fashion marketing.
Whenever, I have time to spare, you can find me listening to jazz music. However, one of my passions in fashion is using my makeup skills to work. Usually, my friends ask me to help them get ready and gorgeous for different events. I am always excited to help because I genuinely adore having fun with colors, hair, and makeup. When its not my friends, I enjoy trying new stuff and playing with the colors on myself. I can honestly say, makeup is one of my biggest joys.
As common as it may sound spending time with my friends and family is a really big part of my life. I really appreciate those moments around them as one of my favorites things in the world. However, I think that better than family and friends, is family and friends around a table full of delicious all kinds of food.
Last but not least, I love investing my time into foundations that help impoverished children. When you put a smile on their faces, they'll make sure to put one on your heart.
I always discover something special about each and every person I meet. I've always dreamed of being a very successful woman, who pursued her love for fashion, while helping other people find their looks according to their personality. I want to help people speak through their clothes, and feel through their looks.
I dream about having a big and happy family, with whom I'd have time to share. I want to be able to find balance between those two big dreams: a family and a job. However, without even having that family yet... I already know they'll be my number one priority. I hope that all my future kids and I can always be a kind hand to anybody who needs it, because I think life is nothing if you're not helping your neighbor.
Me gusta Buena Onda, por la sencilla razón de aportar un granito de arena a la evolución de la cultura colombiana, por valorar a las mujeres trabajadoras de nuestra tierra, por crea una campana de consumo responsable y por llevar el amor colombiano a distintas partes del mundo."
