Hailing from Austin, Texas comes photographer and all-around badass, Cecilia Alejandra.

We chatted with this talented powerhouse last month about everything from her humble beginnings as a photographer, to her favorite furry companion to shoot. Learn more about Cecilia after the jump…
Is it 1996, or something? The 90’s trend made a HUGE appearance at this year's Burgerama, as girls brought back those colorful tattoo chokers, ditzy floral dresses, and head-to-platform neo raver ensembles. Watch out, Clarissa…looks like you’ve got some major competition. Incorporate this radical 90’s inspired trend into your wardrobe with the Roses Sk8-Hi Platforms and the Daisy Authentic Hi.
We found Rachna from our #vansgirls tag, loving an illustration she drew of our Sk8-Hi Platforms. We were itching to see more, so we asked her to work on some pieces exclusively for us. Coming from northern Virginia, Rachna mixes anime and manga influences with the irony of the Internet to get her uniquely relatable and feminine voice.
The Sk8-Hi was born in 1978, with Style 38 as the original name, and it was the second Vans silhouette to have the iconic sidestripe. This fall, we’re celebrating the Sk8-Hi with more colors and styles than ever before (think the Sk8-Hi slim, zip and platform) and a look back at Sk8-Hi history.
