Troupe SS2013

A troupe of laborious craftsmen stamped their skills in each cut and stitch, giving shape to the designer's exciting creative dreams. Creating with exotic fabrics, a beautiful and very showy wardrobe that lavishes joy to those who see it.

Dresses that musically border the silhouette and stylize the figure, peplum skirts with cuts at the waist, straight pants that lengthen the leg and delicately structured blouses are some of the pieces that make up this beautiful show, intended for women to find something perfect, in order to shine through the different roles under the magical tent of life.

Alhelí SS2014

Alheli is a song of kindness, it is a women. It represents all the beauty of the person that taught me the value of handmade. Her perfect feminine curves were always decorated by outfits created by herself, says the designer.

It is expressed in shades of blossoms of alheli, the balance, the nostalgia and the joy of living. Prussian Blue, red gules, yellow, pink buganvilia sprinkled with beige, white and black kasan.

The raw and printed fabrics, chosen with careful precision by Yenny Bastida, highlight the elaborate details made by hand, the applications, the flyers that are already the designer's stamp. Sleeves and necklines of the Alheli collection, stand out with beautiful ornaments which accentuate the structural power of the skirts.

Raquis Fall 2015

 From liberty or lack of inspiration emerges, in this occasion, the birds and their colors were the starting point, however the designer was captured by all their attention, specifically by the structure of the feathers generating cuts, lines and details that presume to become an ode to freedom.

Raquis, a word derived from the latinization of the greek paxoc, is used to name the axial support of various animal and plant structures. The geometric, mathematical, exquisite and sublime nature of these feather structures mark the birth of timeless very feminine dresses, without prints that recharge the soft and unexpected textures of these pieces impregnated with sublimity thanks to their delicate stitches.

The most emblematic plumage of the region, macaws or parrots flood every piece of Raquis. Black, green, orange, red and yellow are the tones of Latin American identity.

In this way, blouses with wings, skirts with flight and dresses with determining figures become the new classics. Designs adjusted to the demands of those ladies who know exactly what they want and who value exclusivity.

11 SUR SS2016

Inspiration takes many paths, like those streets with houses made of walls, colorful bars and windows of towns in Venezuela. In one of those picturesque streets, on Sur 11 avenue San Agustin in Caracas, you will find images of these colorful houses like Santa Lucia en Zulia, Tintorero en Lara, Nigua en Yaracuy, La Asuncion en la Isla de Margarita. 11Sur takes the risk and fascination as well as its perfect latin architecture which is easy to see in a small fishing town or a highway under the sun of a Venezuelan plain.

Its the violets, the frambuesa reds, the white and the intense greens that are the key colors of the palette with chiffon, silks and lace as well as multi colored fringe. The 11 Sur collection is a closet of sorts that pays tribute to those towns that are inherited to those that were born in this land. Jackets predominate, skirts with trimming, embroidered flowers. A pret s porter collection with all the tropical joy, like all those houses that line the streets of Venezuela.
