VILLALBA is the new identity of Couture House ALFREDO VILLALBA, founded in 1976. A renewed brand image is launched with its newly labeled collection which brings together tradition, avant-guarde and stylistic influences from the 8os, a decade of reference for VILLALBA and for fashion designer Diego Villalba.
Diego Villalba, current Designer of VILLALBA, is a fashion creator with 20 years of accumulated experience earned in his own couture atelier. Diego Villalba holds an Economic degree (Madrid, CEU 2.000) as well as a fashion degree (Milan, Instituto Marangoni, 2002) and has developed his fashion career within the family owned Couture House where he currently leads a team of 15 dressmakers whose expertise in the crafted art of sewing, modeling, draping and embroidering unique garments is made innovative under the designers' knowledgable direction.
The creative basis of Diego Villalba's outlook on fashion is defined as impeccable fabric quality, handcrafted tradition used to make the garments and a modern and creative vision. A contemporary and innovative style, full of smalls details and innovative finishes that makes each creation unique, each garment everlasting.
The VILLALBA woman extends the limits of modernity without renouncing to the value of tradition. The collection is designed for a sophisticated, urban woman, with an attitude, that loves fashion and recognizes the added value of quality in the small details of craftsmanship and innovation, both within the garments as well as outside.
