Emerging Designer Spotlight: Mulierr

Mulierr

Bountiful layers, geometric shapes and knitwear with intricate details are just few of the words to describe Mulierr when you scratch the surface of the Colombia-based brand. But, you would never do just that. The emerging designer label offers a fresh approach to ready-to-wear that makes you want to know more.

Designers Lorena Cuevas Restrepo and Paola Tarazona took their collective fashion education at Savanah College of Art and Design and Institute Maragoni and industry experience at Jill Stuart, Emilio Pucci and Diane Von Furstenberg to create a brand that reflects their culture but at the same time was conceptual and wearable. Taking influences from architecture, shapes and lines and fusing it with artisan techniques, there’s a mix of tradition and contemporary design.

You’ll see that clearly on long knit gowns that are striking to the eye that use a variety of indigenous techniques. A slim pant, blouse and open front sleeveless vest are a part of their recipe for layering, pairing and concocting effortless looks. And, a pencil skirt with a floor length overlay placed by each hip is just one example of a clever silhouette along with their multi-tiered dresses.

Grounded in organic cotton and cotton silks the brand focuses on fabrics and their supply chain. The designers work with single women and those with disabilities to make their garments. They  also provide safe working conditions and the opportunity to earn wages while showcasing their talent. Mulierr, which means women in Latin is embodied by not only the clothes, but the women they support.
