  • Fashion is big business in Colombia. This program features top Colombian fashion designer Carlos Zapata on a location shoot in Cartagena. As it follows Zapata's professional activities, the video provides detailed lessons in how to express likes and dislikes in Spanish, especially those revolving around clothes, fashion accessories, and colors. Viewers will soon recognize that Zapata and his team are in the business of creating dreams for others, but the question also arises: what does the artist dream for himself? And how does that dream shed light on self-expression for speakers of Spanish?
