Women Who Disrupt

How Manuela Proano Empowers Female Entrepreneurs To Grow Themselves And Their Business

In 2021, society is continuously evolving and recognizing the power of women in every industry. But despite the developments in gender equality, there’s still a long way to go before we can truly say that we have created an inclusive society free from gender bias. 

Yet these roadblocks in progress didn’t stop strong, smart, and capable women from achieving their dreams. It also helps that they have a community where they pull each other up so they can rise to the occasion. 

In that community are several leaders who are going above and beyond to make sure that they can help unleash others’ potential. Among them is Manuela Proano, the founder of THE SECRET FASHION MOVEMENT, a platform dedicated to helping entrepreneurs grow and scale their businesses.


Helping Female Entrepreneurs Succeed  

Manuela has a bachelorʼs degree in fashion communication and marketing from IED Barcelona. Since graduating, she gathered experience in brands as big as Adidas Originals, McCANN Erickson, Nestle, and Ecuadorʼs Cosas magazine. 

She also has a Master’s in leadership and coaches female entrepreneurs around their leadership, self-confidence, style, and achieving their goals. She sees them as driven entrepreneurs and influencers who want to be known for their mission, what they do, and want to build credibility and power around that.  

“They want to bring in more revenue by doing what they are passionate about, make business easy and attract dream clients and opportunities, and they want to feel seen, confident, sexy, and like a total badass,” Manuela said. 

Yet Manuela doesn’t limit herself to female entrepreneurs only. She also offers her services to help brands find their unique value and style, and showcase it to the world.

Manuela has helped around 30 clients including corporate, small, and personal brands. 


Creating a Community 

In hopes of reaching more people and exercising her passion for fashion, luxury, and helping others, Manuela created MPPA Studio. Her brand connects brilliant minds across the world to collaborate in creating coalitions, conversations, and movement around entrepreneurship, personal branding, influence, fashion, and the creative industries, through THE SECRET FASHION MOVEMENT.

“It represents evolution, passion, creativity, boldness, sophistication, alignment, and support. I want my business to become an international hub and platform where people get to become their highest selves and express themselves in the most authentically aligned way,” Manuela said. 

Ultimately, both MPPA Studio and THE SECRET FASHION MOVEMENT aim to create a scholarship fund for brilliant, new emerging talent in Latin America to be trained at some of the best fashion, creative, and business schools in the world.
