A native of Colombia, Johanna Ortiz takes inspiration from her home country in the production of her womenswear collections. Launched in 2015, the label produces ready-to-wear, resortwear and accessories. All designs are created in the brand’s atelier in Columbia, preserving and promoting traditional artisanal knowledge to create exceptional pieces.
Johanna Ortiz is known for their effortlessly elegant dresses which feature signature bold prints and beautiful ruffle detailing. Each print is intricate and unique, incorporating flowers, palm trees and leaves in unexpected ways. These decadent prints are met with rich colour palettes of oranges, reds and greens, creating opulent gowns for the beach and beyond. Feminine silhouettes are found throughout collections, with off-shoulder shapes, tie straps and puff sleeves adding interest. Johanna Ortiz creates a holiday feeling from dresses through to polished separates. The brand’s beachwear holds the same easy glamour seen in ready-to-wear from Johanna Ortiz– ruffle shouldered swimsuits, tie front bikinis and printed cover-ups. Handwoven bags and statement earrings from the label will perfectly finish off the relaxed yet elegant look that the brand offers.
Online stores such as Matches Fashion, My Theresa and Net-a-Porter stock Johanna Ortiz designs, and their collections can also be found on the brand’s online store.
