Designed in New York City, Leonor Silva is a contemporary brand for the modern day woman: the young professional or working mom who likes to look polished with a playful edge and a youthful spirit. The brand allows women to effortlessly go from day to evening while looking playful and chic.
Born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela, Leonor Silva has always been exposed to international culture and fashion, and has lived in Miami, New York, Paris and Navarra, continually finding inspiration for her designs in the different cultures and the people she comes in contact with. She grew up surrounded by extremely creative - and stylish - women in her family, who inspired her from an early age to pursue her dream to be a designer.
Leonor has always had a keen interest in fashion, and owned her first sewing machine at age three. She studied Fashion Design in Caracas and then went on to obtain her Master's Degree in Fashion Business Management at ESMOD/ISEM in Paris. Leonor continued her training at Chloé and Hugo Boss in Paris before moving to New York to work for Carolina Herrera.
The young designer is known for her casual elegance, her femininity and her ability to translate both modern day sportswear and old world sophistication into her style. She has a meticulous eye for detail and an obsession for creating beautiful - and beautifully made - clothes.
Leonor founded her eponymous brand in 2014 (after having her first baby) for the modern day woman who seeks quality and comfort, but has a strong sense of style and likes to have fun.
