Juan Carlos Obando

New designer alert ! Juan Carlos Obando swung the fashion industry with suprise when he started his brand in 2008. While working as an art director for advertising powerhouses, Obando taught himself how to construct a garment by cutting up vintage pieces. Once he understood and appreciated the work of tailoring, sewing, etc.. he felt it was time to start his own label.  Juan lives and works in Los Angeles and is apart of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA). “We combine traditional Japanese, African and Latin American hand-dyeing techniques to create our signature hues and color palette.” This is a designer to be keeping your eye on.
