Hora Loca is the crazy hour which is embedded into weddings. This concept is Latin-American and began when a Venezuelan couple took inspiration from the New Year’s Eve celebrations in Span. They wanted to cause unending happiness to their guests during their wedding reception.This custom spread like wild fire across South and Central America continuing into the US. When the guests begin to get tired of the dancing, food and drink, then comes out siren wails, the music amps up, strobe lights flash, performers stream in.Guests are pulled onto the dance floor and that’s when the real party begins.

She began a little side business while on quest for her daughter’s happiness.
In 2010, Grace and her son Manuel had to leave Venezuela due to a massive emigration fleeing. There was rapid inflation, starvation and disease. They setting in Houston. Grace managed to send Manuel to University of Houston to study chemical engineering. Grace herself was a post graduate. But she loved making the hats. Grace reestablished her business. The news spread but that’s when Grace decided to open her own website.
