SILVIA GARCIA PRESAS, DESIGNER OF THEAVANT
Silvia returns to Barcelona after studying at the Royal College of Art in London, and launches THEAVANT. We are in 2005. She begins by participating in fashion shows in her city and selling in stores.
In 2009 she opens her first store on Enric Granados street, in the Eixample district of Barcelona, among art galleries and beautiful coffee shops. Ten years later, she opens the brand's flagship store, a space that expresses her character and her Mediterranean origin. The previous shop becomes a bazaar of unique handcrafted objects, PRIMITIU, where the visitor will find pieces that she collects during her travels around the world.
The world of colors and textures of her beloved mountain, of her painting and drawing classes as a child, and her passion for dancing, for clothing as a teenager, come together to take her to the world of fashion. An unknown place for her, then.
And that’s the women who dress with personality, close and real, who are drawn to her world.
She has always worked with clothing workshops close to her community. THEAVANT has grown hand in hand with these workshops. Professionals who exercise their work with excellence, just as the leather master craftsman who make the bags for the brand [watch video]. And “only with the best fabrics”, as she says.
THEAVANT's team of women, of different ages and backgrounds, love her work and share her passion for fashion, good taste, class and quality clothing.
