Sandra Martinez is a native of San Diego who currently resides in Tijuana, Mexico and often visits Southern Cal Milongas. Many of us have seen her on the dance floor, at workshops and Festivals or Competitions. Her sophisticated flair and alluring look defined our inspiration for last year’s 2017 Summer Collection. This Spring she captivates again for the 2018 “In Full Bloom” Collection with her elegance and a bit of a retro style indicative of our brand. Come to find out she is also an avid Vegan and animal lover!
