Loreto Echevarria, an Arizona native who calls Tucson her home, will be showing her designs during the Feast & Fashion event on October 17th at Tucson Fashion Week. She has been a Fashion Stylist for over seven years. In 2008, she obtained a Fashion Design degree from Tucson Design College (now the Art Institute of Tucson) and has been creating custom, made-to-order garments for select clients since then. Her styling service LoLochic was named “Best Personal Stylist” by the Tucson Weekly’s Best of Tucson in 2013.

Heavily inspired by femininity, the Art Deco era, pop culture, and her Mexican culture, Loreto has created LoLo. LoLo is a collection of women’s wear made from luxurious fabrics of rich color and texture that is specifically designed to be flattering to women of all body types. Loreto’s designs are created to inspire confidence in the woman who wears them, allowing her to feel beautiful, stylish, comfortable, and effortlessly glamorous.
