El Chapo’s Wife Is Launching A Fashion Line And I Am So Dead

On Feb. 12, a Brooklyn jury found Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán guilty on ten federal criminal counts and now faces life behind bars. The most infamous drug cartel leader of all-time made billions through his illegal operations. According to CNN when they read the verdict, El Chapo looked over to his wife, Emma Coronel Aispuro, smiled at her and “she smiled back and touched her hand to her heart.”

Outside the courthouse, reporters asked how her thoughts regarding the verdict, and she reportedly said: “Good, thank you.” She doesn’t seem too fazed that her husband will be locked up for good, and now we know why.

El Chapo’s wife is starting her own fashion line.

The 29-year-old has launched her LLC under her name, which means it’s completely separate from her husband’s illegal and financial issues. He will still be involved in some respects.

“I am very happy to be able to create something like this. I hope it’ll be something everyone likes,” she told the New York Daily News. “I will give it my best effort to make it good for everyone and within everyone’s reach,” she said. “I want to start with a line of caps, then I’ll begin to produce clothes, jackets.”

The 29-year-old said that the logo will include El Chapo’s name and some of his fashion sense

“During the process, as it evolves, I’ll see where my ideas take me,” she told the publication. “A little bit of my style and his style — it will be like a mixture of the two so that it really is our essence.”

We have no idea what the mother of twins means by that considering the public has only seen El Chapo wearing three things: a prison suit, a Member’s Only jacket, and that flashy blue shirt.

Well, we are indeed very interested to see what her fashion collection will look like, mainly since she was always stylish during his court appearances

“This project is an idea Joaquin, and I have had for a long time. Before he was in the USA we talked a lot about this topic,” she said. “Really, it’s both of our ideas.”

We’re anticipating this big time.

Why This Venezuelan-American Mom Started A Bilingual Children’s Book Series

Growing up, Susie Jaramillo remembers singing “Los Pollitos,” a bedtime song about a hen taking care of her hatchlings that is as popular in Latin America as “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” is in the US. Now a mom, the Venezuelan-American hoped to pass down these popular children’s stories to her own kids, except, when she went to the library or bookstore, Spanish-language tales weren’t in sight. That’s when she decided to create her own.

Starting in 2016, Canticos is a series of bilingual books, companion apps and singalong videos for little ones aimed at expanding inclusion and creating cultural pride among youth.

“If you’re Latino living in the United States, sometimes you have this feeling of otherness, and what I want to make clear to my children is that their language and their culture is a part of the American tapestry,” Jaramillo, a mother of two, told NBC News.

According to the news outlet, the US has more than 41 million Spanish-speakers, but less than 1 percent of all American books are in Spanish. Canticos is trying to fill the void. With seven picture books, telling the stories of Los Pollitos, Los Ratoncitos, Las Mañanitas and more, Jaramillo is sharing the rhymes she learned as a kid with children growing up in the US

“When I had my first child, I went online and thought: Where are all the board books of these songs that I grew up with” Jaramillo, a former co-founder of a Latino-focused New York advertising agency, told the Associated Press. “We’re always singing the American songs in Spanish, and our songs are great. Why aren’t people singing them in English?”

Catincos, which Jaramillo says is in high demand, is using hard books, apps and now a digital series through a partnership with Nickelodeon, which will soon begin selling Catincos toys, clothing and decor, is giving families who want to raise bilingual children more opportunities to do so.

For the children, it’s a fun way to stay or become connected to a culture that feels at once close yet distant.

“I like the songs, because some of them are really catchy,” a child told NBC News. “It teaches you that’s it’s important to learn more than one language,” another youth added about Catincos.

Canticos books are available at Target, Walmart, buybuy Baby and Barnes & Noble as well as online.
