For those of you who missed Miami’s Petite Fashion Week, this is a chance to get to know of one the latest petite online stores with its new line of womenswear created to cater to short women to fit proportionately and flatter simultaneously. I had the opportunity to talk to Leslie Ann Liwanag from Petite Epoque and discuss a bit more about her brand and what we can expect in the future.
1) Tell me a little bit about yourself
Ever since I was a young girl, I’ve always been passionate about fashion. My first fashion icon was Barbie. As I matured into my teenage years, I became even more fascinated with the fashion industry. Watching CNN with Elsa Klensch ignited that passion within me even more. To add to that, standing at just 4’10” in my teenage years and throughout adulthood became a huge obstacle when it came to shopping for clothes. At that time, I decided that I would someday build a clothing empire focusing solely on short petite women.
