Designer Esther Noriega presents TEMPO - Spring Summer 2016 Collection, inspired by the Muses of Music
TEMPO is a collection in movement markedly feminine, a collection that confronts adagio with allegro. A slow tempo, sensual, pulsating, a lively tempo, energetic and cheerful.

The melody is executed with defined and resounding fashion trends, merging with a cut that recreates the classicism of couture and results in a defined style that harmonizes femininity and defines the aesthetic dialogue of the designer from Valladolid, Esther Noriega.
