Qwear is thrilled to welcome writer LuzMarina Serrano to our team! We heard LuzMarina's Southwest Femme style expertise in her guest post and are all excited to work with her. A little more about LuzMarina:
LuzMarina Serrano is a queer femme Latina originally from Queens, NY, but currently residing in the Southwest. Definitely influenced by her surrounding, her personal style is a blend of Iris Apfel, Frida Kahlo and Coco Chanel. For LuzMarina, fashion is a political statement. One can witness a value for courage and passion not just in her choice of color, pattern and flare, but in the work she has dedicated herself to across the country. Her work has included everything from being a migrant farmworker advocate to the present day educator and advocate with the New Mexico GSA Network. While you might meet LuzMarina at the FemmeCon showcasing her style and radical politics, you might also hear her present at national conferences such as Creating Change. Her stylist work can be seen in Jack Tar 207 as well as on her Tumblr/Blog.
