THE FACES BEHIND MON&VELARDE MANUFACTURE
MARTA GAVIRIA, OWNER AND CREATIVE DIRECTOR OF THE MON & VELARDE BRAND
MARTA GAVIRIA was born in Medellin, Colombia, studied design at the UPB in Medellin, as she has the memory of having seen her mother working in fashion and clothing, which allows her to learn directly from the trade, before entering the academy. . .
Before finishing her studies, she began working in several fields of design such as furniture, corporate image and spaces.
The brand's proposal stems from the combination of a cosmopolitan way of life -constructed from work trips, study and pleasure outside the country- with the local tradition of quality in clothing and manufactures. Precisely she decides to have Medellín as a design and production platform taking advantage of the extensive know-how of local artisans to create their own workshop of short series
