Hector de la Peña

Hector de la Peña had no reason to study fashion, nor had he an epiphany or was a child prodigy who one day took a sewing machine and – voilà! – his first garment was perfectly confectioned. No, that was not the case.

Whatreally happened, at the start, was that he studied graphic design and, in the way, he foundan ease to create and design.It wasn’t something he was looking for, things just came along. His true vocation had just found him and it was about to change his life.

It was a friend’s mother who encouraged him to start taking some courses during the weekends. The last thing you want is to leave graphic design completely, to give it a try and realize it’s not your thing, but for Hector it was the opposite. The path was clear from him and his desire to explore was greater each day. That childish curiosity to delve into the unknown is what keeps and defines him as one of the most talented designers of his generation.

The work of this Tapatío, who now resides in Mexico City, is in constant evolution;however, his style continues to define Hector as a creative born designer withunique essenceand style.

Always faithful to his creative process, Hector constantly seeks to surprise by experimenting with shapes, patterns, silhouettes, textures and the surprise factor, that element that amazes in a magical way.

His projects, besidespresentingas a result perfectly designed and confectioned apparel, display garments considered part of the art-object movement, are unconventional and provocative, and tell a story, the most beautiful trait for the eternal dreamers.

All these elements are part of Hector’s work and help him remain faithful to his creative process, concept and, overall, himself.

Indeed, I think Hector de la Peña didn’t have a reason to study fashion or will ever need one, because when you love what you do, you don’t need a reason.

Héctor de la Peña no tuvo una razón para estudiar moda, tampoco tuvo una epifanía mariana, ni siquiera fue un niño prodigio que un día tomo una máquina de coser y ¡vualá! su primera prenda estaba confeccionada. No, ese no fue su caso.

Lo que sí fue su caso, por un comienzo, fue estudiar diseño gráfico y en el camino se encontró con la facilidad de crear y diseñar. No era algo que él estuviera buscando, simplemente las cosas se dieron. Su verdadera vocación lo acababa de encontrar y estaba a punto de cambiar su vida.

Fue la mamá de una amiga quien lo alentó a empezar con algunos cursos los fines de semana. Lo que menos quieres es dejar el diseño gráfico por completo, sólo probar y darte cuenta que no es lo tuyo, pero para Héctor fue todo lo contrario.  El camino se veía más claro y su deseo de explorar era cada vez más grande. Esa curiosidad infantil de adentrarse a lo desconocido es lo que lo mantiene y define como uno de los diseñadores más talentosos de su generación.

El trabajo de este tapatío, que ahora radica en la ciudad de México, se muestra en constante evolución; sin embargo, su estilo permanece definiendo a Héctor como un diseñador nato, creativo, con esencia y estilo único.

Siempre fiel a su proceso de creación, Héctor busca constantemente sorprender con la experimentación en formas, patrones, siluetas, texturas y el factor sorpresa, ese elemento que sorprende de manera mágica.

Sus proyectos, más allá de presentar el resultado de prendas diseñadas y  perfectamente confeccionadas, nos muestran prendas que caen en la denominación arte-objeto, fuera de lo convencional, provocadoras y, lo más hermoso para los eternos soñadores, cuentan una historia.

Todos estos elementos acompañan a Héctor y lo ayudan a mantenerse siempre fiel a su proceso creativo, concepto y sobre todo, a sí mismo.

Sí, creo que Héctor de la Peña no tuvo ni tendrá una razón para estudiar moda, porque cuando amas lo que haces, no necesitas razones.
