Castro’s accessories and handbags, made of exotic animal skins (crocodile, viper snake, python, and ostrich), have not only gained her recognition in the industry, but also by the likes of Heidi Klum, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kim Kardashian. Her bags were even picked by Patricia Field for Sex and the City 2. She may be rising to the outsiders, but to Miami Castro she's clearly already a star.
