Desmond Lam, Design Director, Marchon Eyewear and Susan Moniello, Vice President – Design & Product Development, Marchon Eyewear. The criteria for wining the competition were innovation, entrepreneurialism, and creativity.

A 2015 graduate of Centro Universitario Anglo Mexicano in Cancun, she is the daughter of Eduardo and Rocio Salinas. As a student at LIM, Natalia has completed internships at Dolce & Gabbana and the Ven Agency. She expects to pursue a career in buying.
