Alicia Estrada to share her passion for clothing design
Apr '12
Alicia Estrada, the founder and head designer of Stop Staring! has found a way to give back to the Latina community and share her passion for clothing design. On Saturday April 21, Estrada will attend the Adelante Mujer Latina Conference, which is a conference designed to empower young women in the Latina community.

"I have been giving classes at Adelante Mujer for a few years now and I'm so happy to teach and inspire these young girls about the fashion industry,” Estrada said. “It is important for us entrepreneurs to give back to the community and share our knowledge with the future of tomorrow."

Estrada will be teaching two classes where she will discuss how she started a fashion business and the inspiration she gets to create her signature rockabilly clothing. She will guide and inspire young girls to pursue their own dreams of entrepreneurship while using her own life as an example. Young girls will also enjoy a Stop Staring! fashion show at 2 p.m. and see Estrada's vision come to life.

“The Adelante Mujer Latina Conference has such a positive impact on young girls,” Estrada said. “I highly recommend this event. The girls will be inspired and motivated to make their own dreams come true.”

Estrada was born and raised in Los Angeles and grew up in a large Mexican American family. Stop Staring vintage clothing is influenced by her upbringing, Mexican heritage and keen sense for form fitting, classic, feminine styles. Estrada's vision for Stop Staring! was born out true passion and dedication. She has spent countless hours designing dresses, creating patterns, and cutting and sewing hundreds of dresses with her own two hands. When Estrada began Stop Staring! she didn't have investors or connections and is living proof that hard work and dedication can lead to success.

“'Diligence is man's precious possession' this is a quote in proverbs in the Bible and is one of the keys to my success,” Estrada said. “I love to share these important life lessons with the students. I love to see their faces light up with smiles."

Celebrating 18 years, the Adelante Mugger Latina Conference continues to be the largest attended event of its kind. In 2011, the conference welcomed more than 1,500 middle school and high school girls from 110 different schools though out the Los Angeles, Ventura and Riverside areas.

Stop Staring! is the leader of original retro chic dresses and separates that flatter the figure and cater to a woman's independent spirit with timeless and classic styles at consistently affordable prices.
