"When something is important for me, it is difficult that I ignore it. I act and get involved" Sofia Ímber
ALEPEL for Venezuela
Venezuela is facing a deep crisis. The most basic needs of medicine and food are not available, while the levels of violent crime and poverty rise exponentially every single day.
We have the urge to support Venezuela and are doing so through our work in collaboration with fashion influencer Daniela Morgenstern (@Danirulis), by dedicating our art to the people in need. Through this capsule collection, we aim to raise the country's most beautiful symbols and in turn, the proceeds will go to positive initiatives in Venezuela.
With the help of a disabled young artits we were able to translate our sketches into beautiful paintings onto the leather shoes.
It is known that hearing disabled artists often produce art that is unique to their own experiences. The flower, bird and trees immediately resonated with the artist's local Caribbean rainforest and savannah.
The result is a beautiful collection that exalts the best assets of our native Venezuela in a collaboration amongst artist.
We are happy to be able to help women and children in need by giving the proceeds of our sales to FUNDANA, a foundation dedicated to the welfare of abandoned children in Venezuela

Born in The Dominican Republic in January of 1995, Luis Alberto started painting at the tender age of 8. A self-taught painter, he started using art as an outlet for his creativity. Being hearing-impaired difficulted his communication but also allowed this young artist to be more connected to his surroundings and taking the beautiful Caribbean colors and scenery translating them to beautiful paintings.
