BIOGRAPHY

Ester Ferrando was born in Vilanova i la Geltrú, Barcelona. From a very young age she began to develop her passion for knitwear and the crochet. After completing fashion studies at the "School of Arts and Techniques of Barcelona" (ESDI), specializing in knitwear, she graduated "With Honors in Fashion" from the prestigious Winchester School of Arts (UK).

Passionate, curious and creative, Ester began working as a practical designer on several projects, in "Pineapple Studios" London, and in "Studio Orta" Paris. Back in Barcelona, she set up her own studio / workshop where she worked for a number of prestigious firms like Josep Font, Pedro Morago and Georgina Vendrell, among others, creating prototypes and one-off production of unique and very high quality pieces. In the following years, she concentrated on the academic world, teaching Technical Design and knitwear in different fashion schools in Barcelona, an activity that she is still involved in today.
In 2012, Ester created her own firm, «ESTER FERRANDO - KNITWEAR», from her own workshop in Vilanova, focusing on knitwear and collaborating with other firms. like "Cortana".

The exquisite quality of the materials, the innovative design and the hand finishing of the pieces have been, from the beginning, one of the key points of her creations. She has presented two collections at 080 Barcelona Fashion, from where she has started selling her pieces to a number of boutiques in Germany.


COLLECTION-   LABYRINTH
 

One of mankind’s oldest symbols. The legend says that those who walk through the labyrinth will have the privilege of receiving double knowledge, on the journey towards the center you undergo spiritual cleansing, and outbound you experience rebirth.
This collection inspired by the Viking aesthetic and the symbolism of the Celts, seeks to draw us into to the magic of an imaginary world with knitwear as its base. Inspirational elements such as mesh sizes, body protections at the time of battle, the overlay of the pieces, are just the beginning of a path that experiments with materials, textures, volumes, jacquard drawings ... With Celtic blue as its base color, ocher, green, roasted hues and grape are also woven in.
Strong, rebellious and confident men and women fearlessly take the difficult path towards the LABYRINTH.
