Ettina Berrios Negrón
The 2 Minute Interview
Ettina is a fashion designer and founder of the fabulous label Thone Negrón. If you have a red carpet event coming up soon or are looking for THE perfect dress for THAT perfect occasion you should definitely check out the website or better yet: stop by the store at Linienstaße 71. In case you’d like to meet Ettina there in person, you should hurry: In just a couple of weeks Ettina will be exchanging silk fabrics and her sewing machine for changing table and nappies. If it’s a girl there might be a girl’s fashion line in ultramarine and yellow soon, too. And if it’s a boy? We think Hans would be a great name.
