Founded in 2004 by Pablo Martínez & Carolina Aguerrevere, Hot Chocolate Design emerges into the Venezuelan market as a local fresh and innovative accessories brand, based on the consumers’ need of fleeing away from the uniformity and creative rigidity provided by mass produced brands. 


They define HCD as a design brand which occasionally blends with art as the concept, design and fabrication of each item they produce shoes, bathing suits, purses, bags, home products, among others – is intended to reflect the individuality of each item. Betting on their customer’s need for originality, they offer limited collections and their retired products have become collector’s items for many of their fans. 

The inspiration behind HCD comes mainly from their own lifestyle; their passion for collecting vintage items and certain nostalgia for all of the 

things that made them feel happy and comfortable when they were young. 


In their design brainstorms, they draw from items, colours, textures and patterns that they treasured in their infancy as well as their yearning to come across them again in our adult lives, transformed as Hot Chocolate Design ® one of a kind accessories. 


Their current brands are formed by their main line Hot Chocolate 

Design®, accompanied by its dead twin and dark side, Dark Chocolate Design®. Welcome zombies, Gothic Lolitas, the living dead, ghosts and spectrum with naughty thoughts.
