Thelma Espina was born in Guatemala City on September 7, 1981. She is a Mother, Businesswoman, Entrepreneur and Artist.

Thelma Espina’s outlook is heavily influenced by her multicultural upbringing in a land of heavy aesthetic eclecticism tropical and post-Mayan understanding of cultural and visual plurality. In an ever-more drab and innocuous world of unoriginal haute couture, Thelma’s work incorporates locally-sourced ancestral materials and colour schemes into works of art that faithfully represent her roots while fearlessly moving forward with a velocity and ferocity heretofore unbeknownst in the area’s fashion scene.

Thelma Espina is showing as part of the International Fashion Showcase 2017, to find out more, click here.
