Thank you to our co-chairs who are passionate supporters of Mexico’s heritage.

Carlos Huber is the founder of Arquiste Parfumeur, a fragrance collection that recaptures the olfactive notes of historical moments through meticulous research and is sold worldwide in retailers including Barneys, New York and Liberty in London. Drawn to the skyline of his hometown of Mexico City, Carlos studied architecture in Mexico City and Paris and completed his degree in historic preservation at Columbia University. His most recent creation is the candle Mérida, based on a guava tree found in a historic quinta in the city of Mérida, Yucatan, developed exclusively for the storied French candle-maker Cire Trudon.

Karla Martinez de Salas is the fashion market and accessories director at W Magazine. In 2010 she and a group of friends launched “Project Paz,” a foundation committed to promoting peace in Cuidad Juarez, Mexico. She is also a co-founder of Piamita, creating comfortable, stylish, and refined loungewear for women. Karla recently married a Mexican investment banker, Francisco Salas, in Mérida at a hacienda restored by the 2013 Hadrian Award recipient, Roberto Hernández Ramírez.

Rolando Santana creates sophisticated and timeless designs for his eponymous label. Born in Cuernavaca, Mexico, he spent his early childhood watching his mother design for her dressmaking business that she ran from their home. In 1991 he moved to New York City to establish a career in fashion. After a successful career designing at renowned fashion companies, in 2009 he launched his own collection which is sold throughout the country including at Neiman Marcus and in boutiques internationally.

Silent Auction items include a Knoll chair, a luxurious spa treatment at Caudalie Vinotherapie Spa at the Plaza, an elegant piece from Rolando Santana’s collection, and more!

Proceeds raised at the event will support WMF’s commitment to preserving the world’s cultural heritage.
