Johanna Ortiz was born in Columbia, in a city known as the Capital of Salsa – Cali. Her blood is hot, as hot as her talent is. Just a few collections’ time is what it takes her to show the world that Johanna Ortiz is a brand with a promising future and a crowd of celebrity admirers. While naked shoulders and refined femininity become her easily recognisable signature style.
She studies fashion design in the States, but comes back to her home country in order to create with an open soul and to give freedom to her fantasy. She gets inspired by French aesthetics, which she skilfully weaves into her hot Latin American temperament. Without neglecting the mark that the years, spent in the States, leave on her style.
This international mixture is the trump card in her hands and it opens doors for her everywhere in the world.
In the Resort 2018 collection, we feel how Johanna saturates her design with the spirit of the ever-lasting Columbian summer. And the details, made by hand, are abundant in tassels and sequins. We leave the images of all this magnificence to your senses.
