JUAN PABLO MARTINEZ

Sustainable Sportswear - Colombia


Juan Pablo Martinez, after an impressive education Milan, Italy to learn haute couture patternmaking and sewing techniques, and landing a prestigious internship at the atelier of Christian Lacroix, returned to his homeland and began a fashion business in Bogotá. "When I worked with Christian Lacroix I learned from him that he didn’t deviate from his own history, he recognized it, explored it, and felt proud of his heritage, so I decided to work with my own resources, rediscovering fabrics, techniques, and finishes from the Colombian Andes. I travel to small towns to look for new resources and there are also some local trade shows for artisans where you can find real treasures."

Juan Pablo Martinez is a talented designer, who, despite (or because of), his sustainable epiphany, successfully and beautifully combines the art and beauty of fashion with a consciousness and sensitivity to the environment and demonstrates that responsible and sustainable fashion can have form, function, beauty, quality and affordability.
