PrendaBella came to life after a vacation in Colombia in 2018 where during my visit to Medellín I found the most amazing fashion designs and accessories, full of color, richness of pattern and materials, and beautiful craftsmanship. They were inspired, unique, and absolutely exciting. My own love of fashion that stands out inspired me to share and make them available to all women who seek an expression of their own distinct style.
I continually search for new designs in my travels to South America, by working with independent designers and at trade shows and fashion events. Each and every piece is chosen with care for its quality of materials and craftsmanship, originality, and relevance in current fashion. My encounter with displaced indigenous people in Bogotá gave me a determination to work only with designer houses that contribute in some way to their own culture and people, and who stand against the exploitation of local artisans. In all encounters and travel I have met with amazing people, and I am excited to be a part of this collaboration with all of them.
Thank you for visiting my website and supporting this small woman-owned business. Don't hesitate to contact me personally if you have any question or if there is anything I can help you with.
