La Chica Miami: Pamela Wasabi

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.

My favorite cuisine to indulge in is . . . Vegan. Mi Vida Café, Thrive on the beach, and Lost and Found Saloon (Wynwood).

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.
