Gloomy glamor editorials and nifty nineties workwear have been championed by Juan. These productions have come of her collaborations with Vogue Paris, Vogue China and W Magazine. She has also mastered the runway fore via her appearances along the catwalks of Valentino, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Roberto Cavalli and Chanel.
