Xiomara Hernandez , a Dominican Republic native, took the fashion world by storm in March 2005 when Martha Stewart wore one of her ponchos which was later dubbed Martha Stewart's "Coming Home Poncho." Her design revived the poncho and created an unexpected demand for hand-made crochet products. Her couture collection of contemporary crochet designs supersedes many preconceived notions surrounding crochet fashion, by adding a chic, elegant and sexy phase to its history.
Xiomara began crocheting as a young girl in her Dominican catholic school and has been continuously elevating her talent over the years. Xiomara is concurrently working on obtaining her bachelor and master degrees. She will be receiving her Bachelor's in Business Administration in June 2010 and expects to receive her Master in Fashion Merchandise from Fashion Institute of Technology ("FIT") in 2011. With the launch of her online store, Xiomara has begun working on expanding her team and looks forward to working with other designers as she begins planning to open a store in New York City. Her evolving collection will provide quality and diverse styles for every member of the family. This is her third year of putting on fashion shows. She started showing at the Metropolitan Pavilion and has moved to the glamorous Empire Hotel Rooftop. She resides in New York City with her family. Xiomara's website: www.xiomaracreations.com.
