From Chihuahua, Chihuahua Mexico
Lives in Austin TX.
Pamela always had an interest to study fashion Design and from a young age, she enjoyed hand sewing everything from her Barbie's outfits to trash bin covers. During her teens she learned to repurpose and redesign her tops with a sewing machine her mother gave her. However, during the 1993 economic recession in Mexico, her family was affected financially and she decided to stay back home and study in her hometown college where a career in fashion design was not available and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Accounting and Finance.
As a middle child, Pamela has a different view of life than her brothers always adventurous and free spirited by nature, traits that her very traditional parents found at times surreal but nonetheless were always supportive of their only daughter. In 2002, Torres received a sponsorship from the Mexican Government to intern in Washington DC at an USDA agency and in 2013 she obtained an MBA degree focused in Global Leadership from UT Dallas.
“I never studied art or design, I focused mainly in the finance world for many years but I love and admire the way artists create astonishing art and truly admire the craft and creativity”
Flash forward to 2012, Pamela got the idea to start a business where she could support and help discover those unknown talented designers from around the world and finally in 2015 she decided to take a leap and go for it.
“At Artradition we focused on selling common objects with unique characteristics such as handmade products, modernized crafts, unique products, meaningful objects, printed art in tees, socks, shoes, pillows, mugs among many others. Always with the intention to help the independent design in his/her initial stage” Pamela
Her three main engines are her husband Paul and her dogs Lucas & Milo.
“Paul has always supported me, he is the key behind this project. Lucas and Milo make my days better, my three guys my three engines”
