The designer

The story of the Fernandá Andréa label began with a girl named Fernanda Andrea Soto Espinosa and her fascination with all things colourful, beautiful and feminine. From her earliest childhood memories she was always sketching clothing designs and dressing herself with much thought about what items and colours complimented one another.

She was mesmerised by the clothing women wore in old Hollywood films and TV shows. She dreamed of one day to be able to make beautiful clothing like that. The curiosity of how those garments where made led her to pulling apart her own clothes and dolls clothes. This then led to cutting up dolls clothes to create new outfits.

She dreamed of pursuing this passion but firstly she thought it would be a wise thing to get some stable education under her belt. She studied and went on to work in a professional field. However, the passion for designing never went dormant, so the day came, to pursue her dream. She naturally had the skill of designing so what she wanted to do first was to gain the skills of advanced sewing techniques and finishes.

After completing sewing and pattern making courses the label was created and here we are today.

Fernanda is exploring new and creative designs daily. She puts much thought into every design and fabric selection. Her inspiration comes from colour, history, films and everyday life.
