Casual Fashion / since 2017 / Orellana la Vieja
Laura Manuela Sánchez Sanz comes from Orellana la Vieja, where she currently lives and works, and remains a firm advocate of employment in rural areas. Coming from a family of tailors, she grew up surrounded by thread and fabrics and learnt how to make clothing from an early age.
After starting her professional career, she won the top award at the 33rd edition of the “Premios Nacionales a la Moda para Jóvenes Diseñadores” [National Fashion Awards for Young Designers] hosted by the “Asociación de Nuevos y Jóvenes Diseñadores Españoles” [Association of New and Young Spanish Designers] in 2018/2019.
She is committed to craftsmanship, traditional values, fairtrade and sustainable fashion. She considers fashion to be more of an artistic discipline and works on the creation of her designs and their imagery with the help of local artisans and artists.
