Wondrous Women - Marta Purriños Spills Secrets (Part 2)

Tenerife seems to have a lot of emerging designers? Who really touches your soul and where can you find them? It's true. It has been a couple of years now that Canarian designers have started to be mentioned nationally. Alilovesyou (online and boutiques nationally) and Mayka Ayong embellishes everyone with her texture combinations and romance of colour. And from Gran Canarias, you just have to fall in love with the talented Oliver Hernandez.

What does fashion mean for you?

Fashion for me is loving the art, listening to your thoughts and expressing what you feel, and for me the best way to do this is to dress yourself. Clothing can make us feel how we want to in a moment - sexy, urban sophisticated, strong, powerful, desirable. It all depends on your attitude. In my life it comforts me to be able to help a lot of people that don't know what to wear or how to combine it, or simply just to advise people on what to invest in or how best to make the most of their body type. It's an enormous responsibility and at the same time it's fun. Confidence with yourself starts with the image you project on the exterior, so fashion is the first step toward that.


Where do you like to hang out? Which bars and restaurants?

You'll catch me having fun in any corner of the island, on the beach, doing sport and then of course lots of time sitting and writing my blog. Really I am not one to go to bars, it doesn't really form part of my lifestyle at the moment.

Where do you go to get your hair done? I just love your cut!

I cut my hair the first time myself at home and I have carried on doing it that way. I don't need a hairdresser; not for the moment anyhow, although I do realise that sometimes I leave more hair on one side than the other!


Lastly, if you could only take one piece of clothing on a motorbike, what would it be?

If I could only take one piece of clothing on a bike, it would need to be a hat to cover my head from the sun. In the paradise of Tenerife, the sun really rarely hides itself.

Too brilliant! This girl is a STAR! I know The Beast would love to have Marta Purriños take him out for a ride.
