THE LATIN BEAT: Mary C. Vargas, president and founder of Tata Jolie, has brought her line of vibrant, contemporary sportswear to WWDMAGIC.
WWD: What is your background? Mary C. Vargas: I was born in Venezuela, but my family is from Spain. So, I have Latin and European blood. I moved to Miami 13 years ago. In Venezuela, I was a lawyer. When I went to the university [in Florida] to see if I could revalidate my license, they said, ‘No way.’ I started working in stores. I worked for five years and then I started my own line. If I had to return to being a lawyer, forget about it.
