March is Women’s History Month. And Monday, March 8, 2021 is International Women's Day. The 2021 International Women's Day theme is is Choose to Challenge. To recognize women who choose to challenge, I’m shining the spotlight on some of our outstanding guests from season 1.
A solo entrepreneur for more than 25 years, Elisa Victoria Jimenez decided at the age of 15 that her life would be her greatest work of art. She's interested in the relationship between art, life and humanity.
If you follow fashion - you might recognize Jimenez from her work with celebrity clients like Cher, Sarah Jessica Parker, Serena Williams and more. Over the years, her designs have graced the pages of Vogue, Harpers Bazaar and Elle. Elisa is also a Project Runway alum. Her creative roots run deep - she’s the daughter of famed designer and fine artist Vicky Balcou and the late internationally known sculptor Luis Jimenez. (You can listen to my interview with Vicky Balcou from season 1.)
“Keep change as your best friend, Elisa, and the unknown as your constant lover. If you know this about life, you will be better for it.” – Words of wisdom from mother Vicky Balcou to daughter Elisa Jimenez.
