“Omar Jorge Villalobos is a fashion powerhouse on the move! Acting as Vice President for one of Chicago’s most promising fashion labels, GOCA Designs, it is clear to those who know this 20-year-old well that he is well on his way. Though most remark on his lively yet graceful attitude, when it comes down to business, this charismatic maven takes no prisoners. Spending each and every day cultivating what he as well as his business partner, Gordana Rasic call, ‘Baby’ GOCA, it is clear he’s ready to take over this evolving world of fashion. Regarding Anna Wintour as one of his key influencers matched with hard work and dedication, will Omar manage to always stay en vogue?” – Tyler McDermott for “El Meztiso”
While we wait for the future to illustrate that reality, check out my exclusive chat with Papa GOCA himself as he discusses his roots, everything GOCA, and offers his personal advice for those interested in the fashion industry.
Enjoy! – Ty :)
