Saki Sano Francisco


Who are SOLO BAILA Designs?

The faces behind SB Designs are Saki Sano & Rebecca Vallejo (aka Bec).

Saki is originally from Japan, but moved to Australia in 2005 in search of a better work/life balance. Over time, she gained Master’s degrees and Australian residency as a professional interpreter & also discovered the love of her life… Latin dancing (and her husband!).

Her background as a competitive ballroom dancer in Japan has helped her develop a keen eye for costumes which led her to start creating her own for competition & performances early on, for herself as well as teams.

Bec comes from a slightly different background… having spent most of her life immersed in Science (completing a degree majoring in Microbiology & working in a diagnostic laboratory), she discovered a passion for Latin dance in 2008, and has been completely addicted ever since.

She has been making competition and performance costumes for herself & her teams since 2011 as she struggled to find something unique without breaking the bank…

This is why Saki & Bec have come together…
To fulfil all your costuming needs within your budget while still providing a personalized service.
