Silvia Tcherassi launched her namesake ready-to-wear line in 1987 in Miami after a natural transition from interior design. Internationally renowned for the Latin flair she brings to modern fashion, the Barranquilla-born designer finds inspiration from the two places she calls home. Tcherassi’s first design was an appliquéd t-shirt made with exotic materials that won her praise from close friends and spread to attract her first orders. After gaining global recognition, Tcherassi became the first Latin American designer to present at fashion week in Milan and Paris.
Also a hotelier running a highly designed boutique hotel in Cartagena, Mansion Tcherassi, the Columbian designer strives for innovation in creative uses of fabrics and an original aesthetic catering to the well-traveled woman with unique sensibilities. From dressed up shirting to a decoratively woven handbag, Silvia Tcherassi offers up effortless elegance via the vibrancy of the tropical climates from which she hails.
