AFANADOR's latest collection is inspired by the Tree of Life, and by work of artist Constantine Dimopoulos, and his "Blue Tree" project. Sensational, chic, elegant, exquisite... are some of the adjectives that describe these stunning designs.
Colombian designer Jorge Afanador is an experienced architect with a background in industrial and interior design, fashion and arts. Creativity is the hallmark of his AFANADOR brand. In his designs fresh ideas are matched with raw materials, diversity of form and avant-garde concepts are mixed with art to bring an architectural element to clothing and jewelry with an environmental awareness.
Jorge Afanador's designs are inspired by nature and architecture, and every creation focuses on flattering a real woman's body, clothing that can be worn by every body type. Mr. Afanador's technical knowledge of a garment’s proper fit and construction, combined with his innate creative abilities, result in an effortless and wearable line that reflects the kind of woman the wearer is: strong, sexy, fun, fearless and the focus of attention.
AFANADOR's visionary concept of an inspiring lifestyle is complemented by a defined awareness of nature and landscape as well as the indigenous sub-cultures of Colombia. The primary focus of his unique designs is the expression of what nature offers humanity, while sending a clear message of environmental social responsibility.
AFANADOR has embraced his role as a versatile, solid designer who is simultaneously a tireless environmental activist in his country. For many years he has led important philanthropic initiatives like COOLOMBIACOOL, a well-known platform for Colombian designers, musicians, artists and professionals to show the world the beauty of Colombia. SOS Landscape, the foundation for the preservation of landscapes around the world is the new initiative of AFANADOR.
