ABOUT ME

I AM A FASHION AND COSTUME DESIGNER AND PAINTER. I WAS BORN IN COLOMBIA AND 
HAVE LIVED AND WORKED IN NEW YORK CITY FOR THE PAST 35 YEARS. COMING FROM A FAMILY OF TAILORS, I CREATED CLOTHING FOR MY DOLLS WHICH LED TO MY STUDIES IN FASHION DESIGN. I FOUNDED MY COMPANY IN 2000 TO MAKE SOPHISTICATED AND ELEGANT CLOTHING FOR CHIC WOMEN. DESIGNING FOR MY CLIENTS IS ABOUT CREATING MEMORABLE MOMENTS THAT LAST A LIFETIME.
 
I DRAW INSPIRATION FROM THE PACIFIC ISLAND OF BUENAVENTURA WHICH EXEMPLIFIES NATURE'S SERENITY. THE COLORS OF THE OCEAN INFLUENCE MY DELICATE AND EXPERIMENTAL - YET CLASSIC- DESIGNS. THE FOUR KEY ELEMENTS IN EACH OF MY CREATIONS ARE COLOR, PROPORTION, FUNCTIONALITY, AND COMFORT. I CREATE SUSTAINABLE SOFT COUTURE, HANDCRAFTED PIECES THAT EMPOWER MY CLIENTS AND CELEBRATE THEIR INDIVIDUALITY. 
 
MY COLLECTION CONSISTS OF TIMELESS AND EFFORTLESS DESIGNS, EACH HOLDING A UNIQUE STORY, HELPING TO EMPOWER THE WOMAN OF TODAY. 
 
THIS COLLECTION, COMPRISING OF FILM, THEATER AND SOFT COUTURE GARMENTS, HAS APPEARED IN WAX FACTORY'S STORY OF RATS, MOLIERE'S MONSTER AND LADY FROM THE SEA, AS WELL AS IN THE FILMS INNER GLOW OF THINGS AND SUPERSTORE. IN 2009, I PRESENTED MY FIRST SOLO EXHIBITION, COMBINING FASHION AND ART, AT THE CLEMENTE SOTO VELEZ CULTURAL AND EDUCATIONAL CENTER IN NEW YORK CITY.  I STUDIED FINE ARTS AT THE FASHION INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY.  I HAVE ALSO WORKED AS AN ASSISTANT DESIGNER FOR MARC JACOBS AND LIZ CLAIBORNE.
Con Amor,
Guiomar Giraldo-Baron
