Territa Torres Brings Motherliness Maternity To Life

| October 3, 2018 | 0 Comments

This spring/summer I had the opportunity to work with Ready to Wear Designer Territa Torres on a special collection called Motherliness Maternity Wear. I came to her with an idea of expanding her clothing line because of my personal experience. Most of us realize that the maternity clothing market is limited for mothers who are stylish and don’t want to “break the bank” for a trimester, or at the most, six months of pregnancy. Being as Torres was also pregnant, the possibility of this line becoming reality was more realistic. She also agreed with my comments about the dismal clothing options for mothers to be.

I knew she would be perfect for this collection. That’s because she makes it her focus to provide clothing that is precisely fit to our bodies, including pregnant women. This was an exciting venture that I couldn’t wait to see through to completion.

We started talking in the spring on what we thought would be a great way to introduce the clothing line and came up with four looks in total. Three of the styles allowed me to be a model.

Fittings and measurements were abundant, as each week I was growing rapidly. On top of developing the product line, we needed to scout for a location for the photo shoot. We needed a location that would complement the designs and help stage our lifestyle message.

The production team for this effort included photographer Carlos Frayre, make up artist Sandra Walter and assistant Tina Lynn. The team collaborated perfectly with us as we walked around the waterfront of beautiful Coronado Island searching for the perfect setting.

Our vision was to have San Diego’s skyline, the bay, palm trees, boats and other scenery, to help relay the concept of a working mom, traveler, someone who enjoys the outside elements in hippie chic and carefree clothing. Isn’t this every pregnant mother’s dream, to feel beautiful and stylish?

The patterns we chose included floral pink tones on crisp white garments, all branding with Torres’ signature pleats. The ensemble had flowing pieces to compliment the on the go woman. During the photo shoot, the wind provided some interesting visual interaction with the garments. The outcome was some pretty incredible photos.

Overall, the maternity garments and the photo shoot results made me feel amazingly good in my skin. The color choices were ideal for my skin tone and the designs complemented my personality, which made me feel confident, event in my 37th week of pregnancy (which is a challenge in itself).

After a four-hour shoot, I can gladly say it was a great collaboration with some very solid people in the fashion and design industry. Once again, I am honored and confident in the capability of Territa Torres Designs. And, I am excited about the new clothing line.
