Writer Statement

Us being really into fashion and styling brought us to the idea of creating a character who looks like us and can represent our community. We think it's so rare for any show or feature to showcase a latina who is also an artist. We really liked the idea of exploring the fashion industry and what it is like to be an outsider in such a competitive market. We wanted to establish a real female character and where her anger and perfectionism comes from, where in our character's case, some of it is deeply related to family and parental figures. We're very interested in creating women of color characters who are flawed and messy and this story fit our vision perfectly with what we had in mind.
