Happy Friday!

This week I would love to share with you a wonderful designer – Cinthya Guerrero, a creator of the french fashion label Stella Pardo. Cinthya combines fabric, crochet and knitting techniques in her stunning pieces.

I admire Stella Pardo’s collections for its truly inspiring masterpieces and for the story behind the brand. The designer, of Peruvian origin, created her clothes line to support the Peruvian community of women as a form of respect and gratitude to her ancestors. All pieces are handmade in Peru with the use of local alpaca and organic pima cotton materials that meet all the ecological standards.

Every year Cinthya travels to Peru to ensure the well-being of her employees. It’s important for her that these women have the opportunity to support themselves and their families with their craft and she does her best to provide high-standard working conditions for them.

What I find really fascinating is that Cinthya doesn’t have any design professional training. She thinks it’s not essential to have a piece of paper that confirms that you can create. The designer’s main criteria in creating is her instinct and feeling for style that comes from the ability to see.

My favorite piece is this feminine crochet dress. I love the stitch pattern, the fit and the color of this beauty!

    Wow, these dresses are truly stunning! I wish I could make the peach colored dress, I too love its silhouette and stitch pattern.

    Truly inspirational! And even more since she doesn’t have a designing education! Her pieces are stunning!

    I remember my mom wearing dresses like that in the late ’60s. I always loved them.

    More beautiful beautiful garments. I love the wedding dress – the way Cinthya Guerrero drapes her garments is just so elegant. I guess it’s the yarn she’s using. I too remember having a crocheted dress in the 60s – it was peach acrylic, and I thought it was awful. I am so ashamed about this because the lady who made it put so much effort into it. But as you will realise acrylic just didn’t hang as the alpaca and pima cotton do. I salute Cinthya’s aims to bring work to the local Peruvian women – she’s talented and honourable.
