Undoubtedly, if we are talking about fashion designers from Medellín, one of the most renowned names is Olga Piedrahita, the fashion designer from Medellín who, inspired by art and ballet, has created an unmistakable seal in which the dynamic and the experimental coexist through versatile garments that evoke movement and freedom.

Like Olga, another great paisa designer is Maria Luisa Ortiz, who in addition to having worked in the haute couture workshops of Christian Dior, involves in her designs Colombian handicrafts that give her garments the perfect touch to celebrate our identity.

Isabel Henao is another name that is part of the repository of great Colombian fashion designers, her passion for bridal gowns, in which she captures what she defines as “a new romanticism”, has made her a reference in this area.

Like them, the winner of the first edition of Project Runway Latin America is from Paisa: Jorge Duque, who combines craftsmanship with new sustainable technologies to create unique garments.

Finally, Felipe Cartagena and Andrés Pajón are responsible for having created a world-class fashion brand that found its inspiration in the natural and cultural opulence of Colombia, transforming the perception of luxury, glamour and Latin American elegance.

In the end, Medellin’s greatest talent, besides its ability to create world-class brands and the ingenuity of its designers and entrepreneurs, is to be a city that celebrates among flowers and mountains the joy of a tropical country where diversity is the perfect excuse to embrace ideas from around the world.
