It is really hard to create something without the help of others.
I'm extremely thankful to all the people that have encouraged and supported me to launch Sugopetite.
There are some very special human beings that have had a huge impact in my life throughout this process, if it wasn't because of them, I would have not been able to do it, specially the ones that provided guidance and have shared their knowledge.
Special thanks to:
StartUp Fashion for the weekly encouraging messages, the daily resources to build up Sugopetite and for allowing me to connect to like minded people in the fashion industry. Nicole Geordano the founder of StartUp Fashion was the person who told me that Sugopetite was possible, I met her beautiful soul at a trade show in New York City. Thank you Nicole, you have given me SO much so far.
Factory 45 her founder Shannon Lohr and her team gave the road map to drive Sugopetite through the right direction and provided me with all the sources and information to launch Sugopetite as a sustainable brand. I can't never thank them enough for the program they put together for dreamers like me.
Female Entrepreneur Association and her founder Carrie Green for all the amazing resources they provide to entrepreneurs. Carrie Green's and her book She Means Business, continues to inspire me every time I feel uninspired or wanting to quit. Thank you Carrie, you are an inspiration!
Fire You Up for keeping the fire within me burning! The daily motivation, the challenges, the loving community and the supporting sisterhood within the group make Fire You Up very special. The founder Natalia Castillo is a dear friend and a person I admire greatly. Thank you Nati for being an inspiration and a role model for me and so many women out there!
Special thanks to my master pattern maker Marta Irene for believing in my project and for being willing to work with me even though she has a full time job as a teacher but made a huge effort to work with me. She was my teacher when I was studding design 14 years ago and I'm so blessed to still be able to work with her 14 years later.

Without all of you Sugopetite would have not been possible.
