Verónika Pagán is a fresh, contemporary designer whose creations are inspired by her Caribbean roots and Italian Minimalism.
With her standard for success, Verónika Pagán has slowly made a name for herself in the world of fashion. Currently established in Wynwood, Miami, Florida, the designer is laboring arduously day in and day out, hoping to take her brand to the international stage in the coming years. A solid work ethic and passion for European fashion has been a winning combination for Verónika Pagán, whose love for art began at an early age. Inspired in her artistic inclinations by her uncle, the late acclaimed artist Richard Pagan, Veronika decided to focus her energy on fashion design while in high school. During her tenure at the Miami International of Art & Design, Verónika won the coveted Prêt-à-Porter Award at Miami Fashion Week in 2006. She refined her expertise with invaluable internships that instilled in her the desire to travel to Europe, a place she calls “the cradle of fashion”. That very desire led her to earn a master’s degree in Fashion Design at the Istituto Marangoni in Milan, where she spent two years opening her eyes to the limitless possibilities of the fashion world.
The VERÓNIKA PAGÁN brand reflects her personal style, as well as a deep love for the European aesthetic. A minimalism approach, combined with modern and classical elements, results in a provocative blend that will undoubtedly capture the attention of fashionistas world over. This ready-to-wear style is set apart by unique attention to detail and its ability to stand on its own or as part of your wardrobe. This openness is at the forefront of the designer’s vision. In 2012 Verónika had the privilege of seeing one of her works grace the cover of Maxim, an international men’s magazine, being worn by famed actress Lindsay Lohan.
Verónika is now prepared to push her brand forward and step onto the international stage. As she strives to do things differently, Verónika continues to search for new ideas in design to keep her collection evolving. With her relentless focus and unbridled passion, it’s only a matter of time before the world takes notice. “My work is an art form that I love and want to share with everyone”, the designer stated. “I feel that with fashion you offer a bit of your vision while inviting people to become part of your creation. And that’s precisely what I want to do.”
In 2016 Verónika joined forces with twin sister, Valerie Pagán. Valerie, who has a law background, was working as a litigating lawyer and decided to partner up with her sister taking front on the business side of the brand. These days the brand includes swimwear, beachwear, ready to wear and a bit of menswear.
