Our buffet breakfast the next morning at Le Meridien was a meet and greet. With about 15 people on our trip from all over the U.S. and Canada, we were doing good just to remember everyone’s names, much less where they were from. We got on the bus and made our way to the beautiful La Amada Hotel (http://www.laamadahotel.com/) to see Spanish fashion designer Agatha Ruiz de la Prada’s (http://www.agatharuizdelaprada.com/) photo shoots. Since several of our group members are fashion editors for major publications, they interviewed Agatha about her fashions, inspirations and why she chose Cancun for this line’s fashion show and photo shoot.
We also got to speak with and see fashions from Mexican-based designers, such as Erika Flores and David Salomon. After a late lunch at La Amada, we bused back to Le Meridien for some more beach time. Although we had just met, the group bonded pretty quickly as new acquaintances quickly became friends.
