“BRAZILIAN DESIGNER AND LONDON COLLEGE OF FASHION ALUMNUS MARIANA JUNGMANN CREATED HER EPONYMOUS WOMEN’S WEAR LABEL IN 2013.
Having as her trademark the use of Renaissance lace, every season the designer creates an imaginary lace world, which has always enchanted her. Jungmann uses traditional hand-made material from the northeast region of Brazil, produced exclusively for the brand. Her designs turn the abstract and floral shapes of the lace into something modern and intriguing, using a perfected moulding technique that create seamless, three-dimensional pieces that are more resistant than traditional ones made with the fabric. The work with lace is not restricted to the material itself, being translated into different textiles and textures via prints and laser cutting among other methods, creating the label’s powerful visuals.
As a brand, Mariana Jungmann follow the values of haute couture and its community of female artisans: these are clothes that women make, by hand, for other women. Jungmann personally provides the lacemakers with training and support, and guarantees that each garment is made to the highest standards. The label prides itself for using high quality textiles, made from natural fibres, taking extreme care of how every piece is manufactured and how it will affect the environment when it is finally disposed.”
