I remember that as a child, my mother had sewing machines and I liked to use, them to dresses my dolls. When I was in school, I make pants and blouses. It was something I always liked.Seidy Villalobos
After taking a pattern course in San Ramón, Seidy could not continue her dream since she worked in a store, although he still maintained the idea of studying design.

That moment where you can have the courage to quit your job and create Heterogeneous, being an idea to generate income and began she’s studying.
ESSENCE AND EVOLUTION

The essence of their outfits are details like saddlebags or pallets, adding interest to the textile to the tactile details that make the difference in each piece. It also uses materials with a shine to provide a bit of elegance, mixed with peculiar fabrics like upholstery or curtain.
In 2018, the designer decided to join the Costa Rica Moda para el Mundo‘s consortium, she has participated in different fashion shows like Sensoria’s platform. Where she presented her collection “Nato Nativo”, defines as the expression of pride and gratitude towards her people; inspired by what for her is the architectural and reference point of the Church of San Ramón Nonato.
For the designer was a great privilege of dressing the deputy Paola Vega for May 1st, the day in which the president makes the report of work and elects a new Board of Directors within the Legislative Assembly.
Dressing the deputy Vega was a great challenge, they have a strict protocol to follow. Vega wanted a different design, and we broke the tradition a little. In the end, we make it a suit that subtly took off from the protocol but without losing the elegance it required.Seidy Villalobos
