Mexican-American Sisters Step Out with Buzzworthy Shoe Collection

Mexican-American Sisters Step Out with Buzzworthy Shoe Collection

It's not every day you hear about two young women launching a buzzworthy shoe collection - especially before obtaining their college degrees. But that is the case with Daniela and Roberta Nuñez. The sisters launched the David Isaac collection less than a year ago, which consists of heels and flats that the sisters proudly designed as "classics."

Daniela, 23, and Roberta Nuñez, 22, were born less than a year apart in Mexico City. Their family moved to Dallas, TX, when the girls were still toddlers and have lived there ever since.

The two found their passion in fashion; both of them will be receiving their degrees this June from the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM), which has notable alumni such as Lauren Conrad and Monique Lhuillier.

While living in Los Angeles, the sisters realized their respective majors fit perfectly together: Daniela majored in design while Roberta focused on the business side of fashion.
