Silvia Garcia

    FOUNDER AND CREATIVE DIRECTOR

    Born and raised in Barcelona, Silvia is the designer and creator of THE AVANT.  It started as a personal project back in 2004, after completing her MA in womenswear design. Away from the ephemeral trends, she is considered curious for culture, tradition, popular costumes and a need to travel to make each collection richer in detail.
