Stay glamorous with fashions from Lis Castella
It’s been far too long since many South Florida women have been able to play dress-up in the ways to which they’re accustomed. The pandemic has dropped its COVID-19 hammer on business gatherings, after-hours networking events, special occasion outings and the fundraising galas that populate high-season calendars.
But with the holidays around the corner, and the hope of a better 2021 on the horizon, it’s time to start thinking about style in terms other than stretchy workout pants. That’s why we reached out to Lis Castella, whose original fashion creations are consistent favorites on the local social circuit. Since her chic, sophisticated and sultry designs never fail to turn heads, we asked the Colombia native for six looks from her recent collection.
