Lorena Saravia has a degree in fashion design from the Escola Superior de Disseny Felicidad Duce in Barcelona. After working next to Mexican Designer Macario Jimenez and for brands like Gstar Raw and Blanco Obscuro, She now has her own label that includes a ready-to-wear line, leather goods and different accessories. She is the winner of the first edition of Vogue Mexico’s Who´s On Next, a project aimed at finding Mexico’s most promising fashion designers.
While visiting Lorena’s showroom in Mexico, we witnessed her great talent; she manages to create products that are comfortable but still far from the ordinary. Known for her impeccable finishes, minimal inspirations and constructed designs, Lorena’s main purpose as a designer is to present wearable art. “My main purpose is to offer the market something you cannot find in the fast fashion stores,” she said.
Sharp, trendy, elegant and classic, her looks are always styled with harmonic combinations. She’s inspired by the English electronic music band Depeche Mode, “they achieve to have the same particular music style no matter the album,” she said. Having a Starbucks coffee is an everyday habit in Lorena’s life but her biggest addiction is her iPhone.
Her grandmother’s black long sleeve gloves are the oldest piece in her closet; and this year’s Isabel Marant collection for H&M is her new obsession.
For her talent, her refreshing perspective, and her capability to design wearable art, The Fancy Archive strongly supports Lorena Saravia´s career as one of the most influential Mexican fashion designers.
