Peña was born in Puerto Rico, the daughter of Dominican parents, and moved to Florida at the age of three. At age of 18, the Florida teen made her way to New York City to attend Parsons School of Design with a full scholarship. She interned for Donna Karen and Josie Natori upon graduation at 22-years-old and now, at the age of 36, Peña has a strong worldwide following. Erika recently became a mother and relishes designing for all body types. She has worked with celebrities such as Fergie, Nicole Richie, Evelyn Lozada and most recently Beyoncé. Style icon’s like Paris Hilton, Beyonce, Brooke Shields, Kim Kardashian, and Bridget Marquardt are several of the designer’s clientele. Her exquisite creations have graced the pages of InStyle, Glamour, Vogue, Elle, Us Weekly, HOLA, Harper’s Bazaar, and ELLE to name a few.
