SPRING 2017 INSPIRATION

The new SS17 collection is inspired by the great maritime power that Portugal was in the 15th century. Colors reflect the depths of the sea, Lace reinterprets fishing nets, and maritime motifs are reimagined in embroidery and laser cut outs. From this combination of ideas emerge a spontaneous bond between sophistication and simplicity with a sweet touch of urbanity, where nostalgia is approached with a fresh sense of modernity.

 

ABOUT THE DESIGNER

Katty Xiomara was born in Venezuela within a Portuguese family and moved to Porto at the age of 18. Graduating from the prestigious Citex (now Modatex), she launched her brand in 1998 and after many awards, flagship stores, and accolades, has become a fixture in the Portuguese fashion industry.

Katty Xiomara first took part in Portugal Fashion in 1996 when she was still a fashion student. Shortly afterwards, she became a regular presence at national events. She has also taken part in some Portugal Fashion Paris events. In 2005, she began her participation in international trade shows such as Bread & Butter, Berlin and Barcelona, and the Project, Las Vegas, and others.

In 2007, she opened her studio shop in an old house on the emblematic Rua da Boavista street in Porto. And it was in this house that in 2012 she welcomed an official visit from His Excellency the President of the Portuguese Republic – Professor Aníbal Cavaco Silva, under the scope of the president’s visit to outstanding creative industries.

Since September 2013, she has been presenting her collections at the New York Fashion Week. In 2013 and 2014 she was nominated for the Golden Globe for the best fashion designer. In 2014, she was awarded the Silver Winner by the IDA “International Design Awards” and she repeated this feat in 2015. In addition to two Silver Winners she has also achieved an Honourable Mention.
