Margarita Díaz Del Castillo
Margarita Díaz Del Castillo is a colombian designer with great affinity with art, design and fashion. These affinities defined her and made her study Graphic Design at the Jorge Tadeo Lozano University, in Bogotá, where she graduated.
Then she decided to travel and study Fashion Design in Milan, Italy at the “Istituto Europeo di Design”. Her quest to learn more about the fashion and design world lead her to travel once more, this time her destination was Argentina, where she experienced and found true love. Both personal and in the art of millinery. By 2012 Margarita returned to Colombia and founded her millinery fashion brand.
Getting back to Colombia woke up the need to find her roots, researching about artisan techniques and materials she found the magical ancestral cultures and unique high quality traditional crafts around Colombia.
Margarita Díaz Del Castillo Millinery has participated in many fashion events collaborating with some of the most renowned colombian designers including Hernan Zajar for the 2013 spring/summer collection at Cali ExpoShow, with the 2012, 2013 and 2014 autumn/winter collections at the “Círculo de la Moda” in Bogotá, with Haute Couture designer Pamela Duque at the Colombian International Fashion Week de Bogotá on 2015, with Male designer Jon Sonen Macondo collection at “Colombia Moda” 2016 and with Angela Galindo on her runway for the Bogotá Fashion Week 2017. As an exhibitor she has participated at Buro on 2015 and 2016, at B-Capital’s pop up store and at Expoartesanías in 2016.
Margarita’s Brand offers three different lines: the main Haute Couture collection and Artisan Fascinators and hats, the Bride Collection with handmade headpieces made to order and the Kids collection: a colorful and fun group of pieces like headbands, bows and ribbons.
“This is my story, my essence. I am proud of my roots and ancestors. I want to tell the world all the magic involved behind this beautiful country called Colombia through the millinery art”.
