Paulina's collection, "It's Only Heritage", examined where she came from and how it has influenced her as a designer. Growing up in Mexico, her collection draws inspiration from her roots as well as her interest in baroque art and culture. This collection offers a baroque style itself with fabrics of wool tweed, wool baroque, herringbone, silk, cotton, hand-dyed leather, and is accented with traditional and effervescent embroidery. She choose colors such as pinks, purples and blues of different hues, along with blacks and greys. The collection offers three stages: The Baroque, from looking into her mothers' eyes and her exposure to baroque culture, The Mexican, signifies her traditional Mexican culture, and The Strong, brings the collection together with the thought that everything good and bad meets together in the end.
