Young Black Designer Dresses The First Afro-Colombian Woman Vice President
Alexandra Jane

A highly important political figure has got a new fashion attitude thanks to a young, Black designer with fresh taste and a penchant for what he calls, “resistance fashion.” 23 year old Esteban Sinisterra has earned the privilege of dressing Colombia’s first Afro-Colombian woman Vice President, Francia Marquéz.

Sinisterra, who grew up in Colombia’s largely poor Pacific region, says that he has a connection with the VP, as Marquéz also came from humble beginnings. His shared connection with the former lawyer include the fact that she also grew up poor in the impoverished municipality of Suárez, in Cauca province. She worked as a housekeeper and activist before taking her current role.

Marquéz, a human rights and environmental lawyer has been an activist since the age of 13 when she spoke up in regards to the construction of a dam in her childhood neighborhood. She has most recently received death threats for her opposition to gold mining. And while that may seem grim, Marquéz can carry an air of resistance and celebration wherever she goes thanks to her new dressmaker.
