Ximena Valero officially began her fashion career in her hometown of Mexico City, as a pre-teen: taking sewing and fashion classes. This led to making clothes for herself, then producing them for friends, family and schoolmates.
At 17, she entered FIDM San Diego. In her early 20’s she managed a fashion photography studio while continuing to design and produce her own creations. At 24 she accepted an offer to work as a designer for Victoria’s Secret / Limited Inc., in New York.
While in the big apple, she co-founded New York Fashion Group – which led to a deal with Elite Models to present 30 outfits on for Fashion Week 2005. This solidified her worldwide recognition.
Based in LA since 2007, the designer travels seasonally, maintaining her ties to her native country as well as the rest of Latin America, and has begun nurturing new relationships with Europe and Asia.
With an innate sympathy the for the curves of all women, as well as the ability to design couture as easily as casual wear, or design a bikini with as much attention as a wedding dress, Valero continues to innovate and march to the beat of her own drummer. The result is an enormous inventory of women’s clothes and a long list of garnered awards and public recognition.
