Amelia Toro shares expansion wishes at SS16 presentation

Published
Oct 2, 2015

Amelia Toro unveiled her SS16 collection inspired by school children during the Renaissance period at New York Fashion Week.
 
Colombia-based, Toro produced a collection that expresses a playful spirit and a feeling of nostalgia that is very in-line with her aesthetic and universe. Playful shapes, like poplin A-line blouses and loose fitting tunics, and technical fabrics like Italian double-face gingham and fringed fabrics are seen throughout the collection as a nod to the peasant style. Toro references school uniforms with a lightweight wool Prince of Wales pattern, delivering what she describes the collection as, “School girl meets English school boy mixed with traditional Latin American crafts and details from the indigenous heritage.”

A few accessories from her collections have been made from patterns and fabrics unique to some South American tribes. 
 
Toro currently operates a boutique in Chelsea in New York City, and hopes to have her collections carried in fine retailers in Europe. “We aim for high end multi-brand stores and department stores,” said Toro. “We would love to be carried at Bon Marche, Browns, Harvey Nichols, and we are looking to develop partners for the long run in Europe and England.”

Amelia Toro founded her eponymous label in 2012. After studying at the Rhode Island School of Design and Parsons School of Design in New York, she launched her collection that allow for movement and development of the body. She produces all of her collections in her factory in Bogotá, and employs many single parents to empower them and to help ensure that their children will have a better future. A single seamstress crafts each piece from start to finish and then signs it, thus making her collections very personal for the wearer.
