De La Fuente
When we asked Kara Fuentes about the inspiration behind De La Fuente, her story begins with solo travels around the world, from Morocco to Vietnam, sourcing jewelry, clothing, and textiles.
As Kara says, "I adore history and the old world elegance, and reflect that love into most of my designs and styles."
Thanks to family ties, her journey led to Mexico where she discovered an artist in Oaxaca who sparked her passion for millinery. Over time, she learned to design and press hats. All hats are handmade, ethically produced, and sourced from natural fibers in Mexico and Ecuador.
