“I’ve done market for a year in New York but this is my first formal presentation. I feel ready to be here, I have met so many people from New York — and also, I think that my clothes appeal more on models rather than hangers so it was important for me to show it like this.”-says Johanna.

Johanna showed her line at the garden of Ladurée located in Soho. The presentation featured a lot of Latin elements including the cheerful Columbian music that echoed in the venue. The designer explained that this type of music is called Cumbia Pacifico, and it’s very popular in Columbia. When it comes to the designs, she claims that she tried to add a little Southwestern vibe to her recognizable Latin flair.

The collection is very feminine, chic and vibrant. The ruffles that are her signature sign are present in almost all of the designs.

As for the fabrics, there are endless options. You could choose from beautiful summer lace, sequins, denim, knitwear and more.
