This new collection Teresita Orillac made in Dubai is called “Into the jungle”, with custom prints based on my pictures of feathers from exotic birds found in Latin America.
Panama is a tropical paradise, with an ocean on each side of the country . We have a huge migration of different birds species, people travel to Panama from all over the world to do bird watching.
I started my fashion experience as an image consultant and personal shopper, this background has a strong influence in my designs. I enjoy designing beautiful clothes, how- ever, I love creating something that has the power to make someone feel confident, beautiful and make their daily lives easier.
As I designed the collection and played with the photography and artwork for the prints I never lost site of what is truly important to me as a designer: to design pieces not only based on how they look on a mannequin or model, but to think of a women’s body and their everyday lifestyle. The majority of the pieces of this collection are also easy to care for. When tems are dry clean only, you never manage to go to the cleaners, and then you don’t use them much either. Being able to dress up quickly is a wonderful thing.
The collection aims for busy women who travel frequently :
- The fabrics are “travel friendly” ; so it is easy to pack and wear on your next destination. - Can be easily cared for, no need to dry clean them every time you wear them .
- The smart cocktail dresses , skirts and tops can be worn throughout the year in most weathers because it is easy to mix & match and wear them with either boots, tights, high heels or sandal, coats or hats.
