As part of the National Export Awards 2019, AGEXPORT launched its newest commission ARTEXPORT, which joints high fashion with artistic designs.a
During the National Export Awards 2019, where we displayed the main success stories of Guatemala’s exporting companies, we decided to use the space to also launch our newest committee where we have unique Guatemalan artists in different disciplines that work hard to display Guatemala on the artistic field. 16 artists under the direction of Sofia Heguel created five unique pieces that joined fashion with sculpturing and fashion designs, each one inspired on the categories of the event. Seven other designers created 80 decorative pieces that were used at every table during the gala; said Mrs. Connie de Paiz, AGEXPORT’s President.
The main purpose we pursued with the designs created for AGEXPORT’s Gala was to design an artistic piece that would gather an orchid with a unique structure and special details. We also produced art pieces seen in other parts of the event. For example, the hostesses of the event carried with them a special Guatemalan necklace handcrafted with recycled materials and even the host of the event, Ricardo Santander, wore special ties inspired on Atitlan Lake, made by the famous designed Eduardo Figueroa.
