Founded by Carolina Aguerrevere & Pablo Martínez in 2004, Hot Chocolate Design emerges into the Venezuelan market as a local fresh and innovative accessories brand, based on the consumers need of fleeing away from the uniformity and creative rigidity provided by mass produced brands.
We define HCD as a design brand which occasionally blends with art as the concept, design and fabrication of each item we produce – shoes, bathing suits, purses, bags, home products, among others – is intended to reflect the individuality of each item. Betting on our customer’s need for originality, we offer limited collections and our retired products have become collector’s items for many of our fans.
The inspiration behind HCD comes mainly from our own lifestyle; our passion for collecting vintage items and certain nostalgia for all of the things that made us feel happy and comfortable when we were young. In our design brainstorms, we draw from items, colors, textures and patterns that we treasured in our infancy as well as our yearning to come across them again in our adult lives, transformed as Hot Chocolate Design® products.
