GIRL BOSS AND CEO
With her Panamanian roots steeped deep in carnival culture and the Caribbean, Martha Ortiz created the Corshale Beurre® line of products as a nod to the glitz and glam of the Carnival and Mas celebrations that she grew up loving so much. She owns and operates Corshale Beurre® from her private studio in the Bronx, New York.
WHAT'S IN A NAME
Martha incorporated her family's names into the brand, with "Corshale" being the namesake of her beloved children. Because her product line makes you look and feel beautiful, she rightfully named the brand Corshale Beurre® with the word "beurre" meaning "butter" in French.
THE INSPIRATION BEHIND THE BRAND
Carnival is an annual event most popularly held in Trinidad and Tobago, but is also celebrated worldwide. The event is well known for its participants (also known as masqueraders) who dawn colorful costumes in the exuberant celebrations. There are numerous cultural events such as "band launch fetes" running in the lead up to the street parade on Carnival Monday and Tuesday. It is said that if the islanders are not celebrating it, then they are preparing for it, while reminiscing about the past year's festival. Traditionally, the festival is associated with calypso music, with its origins formulated in the midst of hardship for enslaved West and Central Africans; however, recently Soca music has replaced calypso as the most celebrated type of music. Costumes (sometimes called "mas"), stick-fighting and limbo competitions are also important components of the festival.
