“We believe in the promotion of human dignity through fashion and art.”
We have heard that sending visions into the universe cannot be wrong. So let’s do it. Whats your vision? What will Willy Chavarria look like in ten years?
I would like to expand into collars with lower price point retailers. While we currently offer higher priced product, I would love to one day offer the same styling and message to more people through mass outlets.
How do you spread love with your product?
Thats a wonderful question. And it’s the core of the Willy brand. An integral part of our mission in building the brand has been to partner with organizations that promote love. For example we did a collection in which the sales profits were shared with The Trevor Project fighting suicide among our LGBTQ young brothers and sisters. And we have created uniforms for the HELPER Foundation in Los Angeles providing food, PPE and necessities to those neighborhoods hardest hit by the pandemic.
Which hype do you follow daily? What makes it so magical for you?
I avoid hype, actually. But I do find magic in art. And in fashion of course. I can easily get lost in a magazine or an William Freidkin film!
