ARGENTINE DESIGNERS

Daniela Sartori Daniela Sartori launched her eponymous label in 2010. The line’s exquisite interpretations of unity and simplicity have given her critical acclaim as a new designer. Sartori’s design aesthetic is an exploration of fit; her intention is to deconstruct mold-making, made possible by years of experience in tailoring. Technical expertise, she feels, liberates the mind to an infinite and free creative process. Her clothes enhance feminine silhouettes, creating expertly tailored separates full of movement. Daniela Sartori has been involved in fashion design at all levels and for many years. Graduated with a degree from the University of Buenos Aires, Sartori has grown substantially in her work, participating in Colombiamoda, La Bid, Buenos Aires Fashion Week, and New York’s Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.

Real women with a defined sense of style, from any generation, can wear a Marina Dappiano look. She designs pieces that transition seamlessly from day to night. Today, Mariana is considered to be part of the founding generation of the great Argentine designers. She studied fashion at the University of Buenos Aires, also working for years as a specialist in textiles and tailoring before deciding to begin her own line.
