BBW 2008 : Patricia Avendaño



Patricia Avendaño



Patricia Avendaño was born in Vigo (Pontevedra), where she lives and has set up the head offices of her Company.

In 1987, Patricia started to work by designing party dresses for one of the most prestigious bridal companies in Spain. Three years later she presented her collection at the first edition of Gaudi Novias (l990) in Barcelona.

In 2000, she recruited her own team of collaborators and, maintaining the style and the criterion that had characterised her previous stage, she created her own Company, Patricia Avendaño S.A. She designed her first line of wedding dresses for the elegant and modern woman.

In 2003, the Company embarked upon its process of internationalisation. Nowadays, Patricia Avendaño has a major presence in a wide range of utterly different countries such as Portugal, Italy, Switzerland, Japan, the Arab Emirates, Mexico, Kuwait and the United States. The Noviaespaña trade fair, with 3,000 foreign buyers from more than 50 countries all over the world, is a very important forum for the expansion of the Galician Company.

In 2007, Patricia Avendano is an important reference point in the bride and party sector in Spain, she is present in 38 Spanish provinces and in more than a hundred multibrand shops that specialise in bridal fashion. She also participates in the International Fashion Week of Madrid and the SI Sposaitalia Collezioni of Milan.

As a person, Patricia is a simple and extroverted woman that loves music and travelling. She loves her job and suffers until the very last minute to make sure that everything works out perfectly. Among many other designers, she admires Valentino, whom she regards as a great creator. Her mobile telephone and favourite perfume are her inseparable companions, and she says that being a mother changed her life for the better.

Her feminine and elegant proposals, well above extraneous trends, revolve, this year, around a single concept: each dress is a magnificent TREASURE.

A prize that wins a woman's heart not just for its sparkling beauty, but also through the value of its meaning. Ivory is offset by dashes of silver and gold to build rich fabrics. Every adornment is pure craftwork...

Silver and gold...lines...
They are simple and elegant, but painstakingly perfect in terms of pattern, making and adornments, the result of Patricia Avendaño's 26 years of experience and prime-quality fabrics (natural silks) from France and Italy.

Long dresses, designed on the basis of a clear idea of volume and proportions, thus extolling woman's body, enhancing its shape to the utmost degree. All kinds of necklines: 'halter', boatneck, for offer the possibility of choosing the most becoming one... Movement? Reserved for skirts.

Ivory, gold and silver call the tune in the Bridal collection, while the Festive and Ceremonial proposals feature lively colours such as green and red, turquoise and lilac, and the sure-fire bet of black, although gold and silver have stolen a good part of its thunder. Large hand-dyed organzine flowers, bows, shawls adorned with frills and sashes are elements which, besides adorning and accompanying the garments, provide hues that contrast with the dresses. In cloths, silk organzines with polka dots or stripes and sequins complement the striking proposals of the party wear collection.
