La Chica Miami of the week is Pamela Wasabi, a colorful doll obsessed with Japanese Harajuku culture.
This Colombian moved to Miami as a teen, and earned an associate’s degree in fashion on 2003, while working as a designer. In 2007, she moved to Paris, where she lived for about a year.
Her bright flashy dreadlocks are impossible to miss. She usually has a camera on her, so if she likes your style, she may snap a photo and post it on her site Wasabi Fashion Kult or a New Times’ blog.
We asked Pamela to fill in the blanks:
My favorite best-kept secret about Miami is . . . The sky is pink.
To stay in shape, my fitness regime is . . . Boxing… and smiling.
To get away from it all, I go to …roadtrippin’ with Duke (Her boyfriend Alexander Duke).
When I’m in the mood for some retail therapy, I must visit . . . Betsey Johnson
My purse must absolutely contain …Pen and Paper, or camera.
When I’m in the mood to paint the town red, I go to . . . Bar-hop Wynwood and Downtown, ending up at The Vagabond.
My favorite ride is . . . my MINI, my longboard.
My ideal companions are . . . Family, which also includes friends and my pet.
When I was a little girl, I remember … Wearing a Snow White dress and red lipstick to school, and it was not Halloween.
I most look forward to … Going to Tokyo.
