Meet Angie Ferrer Domenecq
Name: Angie Ferrer Domenecq
Generation: 80’s big hair and great music
Occupation: I worked all my life in media and fashion, although I studied law. I have always been surrounded by friends who are designers and artists and that helped hone my eye and stimulate my creative vein. I like to think I am a “fanatic of beauty” in whatever manifestation: a flower, a painting, a necklace or a smile. My boutique ViBe and my new project ViBe edition are by-products of all of this.
FB - Charitable non-profit or philanthropic organization of choice?
AFD - I really feel that charity should be anonymous, an act of generosity, but now it’s part of one’s resume. I still collaborate with Helping Hands and Any Baby Can in Austin. Here I am involved with No More Tears, an amazing organization that fights human trafficking and domestic violence. Basically, anything involving children and women is a priority.
AFD - We lived in Austin, TX for six years where it is easier and safer to raise children, but I was a bit bored (I still have friends there, but they know that it’s not about them!). We had such a good life there, that my daughter is convinced she is a Texan girl, but now home is here.
FB - You have been living in Miami long enough that ...
AFD - I still have a love/hate relationship with this city; at least now I am faithful.
FB - Think 10 years ago - what's the thing you can't live without now that you didn't have then?
AFD - My kids, Vincenzo who is 9, and Bella who is 5
FB - The one thing Miami is known for, but you have never visited, experienced, done, eaten? AFD - Visited the Everglades
FB - If you were to move, what would you miss the most of Miami?
AFD - The beach, I am a bit of a dolphin, and even though I don’t swim as much as I would like to, I cannot be too far from the ocean.
FB - The book on your nightstand?
AFD - Reading "Art Lover" by Peggy Guggenheim, but it’s not on the nightstand.
FB - The last time you went to the movies?
AFD - Ice Age - not a cartoon lover, but we do anything for our kids
FB - Your signature fragrance?
AFD - My new obsession is Metafora by Fueguia
FB - Heels or flats?
AFD - I love, adore heels, but I have been wearing lots of flats since I moved to Miami. The store has stairs.
