LOS ANGELES – Mexican actress and singer Anahi is making her U.S. debut as a designer and businesswoman with her own line of shoes oriented toward Latino women.
“I’m super happy to launch in the U.S. the sale of shoes by catalog where Latino women can select from among a great variety and according to their tastes,” Anahi told Efe.
The publicity campaign by Los Zapatos Fabulosos de Anahi in the United States begins on Tuesday and the artist is offering her footwear designs via the online store aviesta.com.
“I make suggestions with drawings of the shoes’ designs so that Latino women see them as pretty, like the ones the celebrities use on the red carpets, but at prices accessible to everybody,” she said.
“Four years ago we began to offer my shoe designs in Mexico, but via the Facebook page and other social networks the girls in the U.S. have been asking me when I was going to expand the service ... here,” the artist added.
Born on May 14, 1983, in Mexico City, Anahi Giovanna Puente Portilla made her acting debut at the age of 2 in the children’s television series “Chiquilladas” before going on to appear in eight films and 11 soap operas.
Anahi was later part of the musical group RBD, formed with other members of the artistic cast of the soap operas for young people, which was nominated for a Latino Grammy.
This year Maxim magazine dubbed her “the sexiest woman in the world.” EFE
