Johanna Ortiz designs for a jet-set crowd, yet her origin, Colombia, remains the ethos of her brand. Her clothes are voluptuous, feminine and festive, like the women that wear them. The designer has become a fashion ambassador for Colombia, and has been invited to show her collections at the White House in Washington and the United Nations in New York.
After studying at the art Institute of Fort Lauderdale, Ortiz went back to Colombia and got to work on the foundations of her brand. After being a critical and commercial hit locally, Johanna Ortiz went international and is now carried by the most exclusive retailers in the business.
