Johanna Ortiz’s Spring 2018 Ready-To-Wear collection is rich in colour with an abundance of florals, frills, and flare. The South American designer recently debuted her collection in Paris at the Colombian ambassador’s private residence in the seventh arrondissement and it was a feast for the eyes.

The collection features over 50 looks and exudes a strong South American flavour, thanks to Johanna’s affinity with her home country. As a fashion ambassador for Colombia, Johanna is passionate about recognizing where she came from and is a strong believer in supporting her local community. The Colombian influence is engrained in all of Johanna’s collections, however, it is particularly apparent in her latest range. The tropical landscapes, blossoming flowers, an array of flora and fauna provides constant inspiration to the fashion designer.

The Spring 2018 Ready-To-Wear collection was inspired by French Impressionist Paul Gauguin’s painterly brushstrokes and generous use of colour, with the artist’s influence evident in the custom floral prints and free-flowing forms. A Japanese influence can also be detected in Ortiz’s collection with robes and shirtdresses inspired by kimonos, wrapped over jeans, lace dresses, and skirts. The diversity of the collection allows the pieces to be worn on their own or layered over other garments, depending on the mood.

 I find that my clothing can appeal to women of every age. I love to see how women of different generations make my designs their own. What they have in common is that they are looking for clothing that will make them feel beautiful and accentuate their femininity – Johanna Ortiz

Long voluminous skirts, flared pants, frilled frocks, backless dresses with beautiful bows, balloon sleeves and generous amounts of ruffles bring the collection to life and create an elegant and feminine aesthetic.
