With a thick mop of red curls and boundless energy, when you walk into one of her Boutiques, Pepita makes you feel like a friend. As she hustles about the store, she sizes up your body and selects garments off racks. She asks question after question, which you feel perfectly comfortable answering. She whisks you into the dressing room with a first batch of garments to try on. Your answer to her questions will help her select the second lot of clothing of clothing. Pepita will not be satisfied until she is sure that your clothing is a true extension of who you are as a woman and that you feel completely comfortable in whatever you have selected.
“It happens to all of us. The special event you’ve been looking forward to is coming up. You go to your closet, overflowing with clothing and low and behold, you find nothing to wear. When that happens, local fashion designer Pepita Nelson is Cabo’s “go to” person and has been for 20 years. At Pepita’s “Magic of the Moon” boutique in Cabo, Pepita will size up your body with a glance. She will have you dressed and accessorized to the nines before you know it. Your body will look ten pounds thinner, and you will attend your event with all the confidence of a red carpet celebrity.
“I love playing dress up when women come into the store,” Pepita says. “I love to make women look thinner, which is all about balancing the shoulders and hips. I love seeing a woman’s face light up when I help her find the best color for her skin and hair, and I love it when a woman walks out of my store saying she had a great time and that she will be back to play dress up again.”
Pepita opened the doors of Magic of the Moon Boutique in Cabo San Lucas in 1991 with the intent of manufacturing and selling lingerie. A line of panties and bras burgeoned to a line of handmade beaded bustiers that moved out the doors of her small boutique as fast as she could get them made. The bustiers couldn’t be wore alone, however; they required skirts, pants, leggings, and jackets over them on balmy Los Cabos evenings. It wasn’t long before Pepita began to design, manufacture, and sell a complete line of women’s wear.
Today, twenty plus years later, Pepita will proudly tell you that “We still make clothes the old fashioned way, one garment at a time.” Though Pepita has made a conscious decision to avoid mass production over the years, her business has expanded into children’s, bridal, and special occasion lines and a second store in San Jose del Cabo.
While it may look like a one-woman show, the unseen backbone and unsung hero behind the red-headed dynamo is Ron, her husband of 20 years. Ron handles administrative, technical, marketing, and home maintenance details leaving Pepita free to focus on creativity and improving the Los Cabos aesthetic by dressing the population in clothes they look good in. Pepita claims one of her secrets of her success is that she can dress any body and make it look good. She designs and manufactures sizes extra small to 4XL. If you find a dress you like but are not 100% satisfied with the fit, or if Pepita isn’t, it will go to her shop for alteration. Pepita’s designs are lush, feminine, and romantic and she says that because she is living her passion, she finds sources of inspiration everywhere every day. “I am inspired by dreams, butterflies, fairies, my granddaughters, Cabo San Lucas, driving the Baja Peninsula, the pieces of fabric and anything Bohemian or hippie chic,” Pepita says, never once stopping to sit still as she talks.
