Born in Bogotá, Colombia. Textile designer and passionate for shoes. After graduating from Textile Design, from Universidad de los Andes in Bogotá, went to Italy to learn the art of designing and making shoes. Had the opportunity to study Footwear Design, at Istituto di Moda Burgo, and Footwear Modelling and Design, at Ars Sutoria School in Milan.
Nowadays designing for my own brand of shoes, Margarita Torres; a brand created thinking in women who like to feel different and unique. Of course, I keep my passion for textiles, which I let flow every now and then in my designs. Happily found a new and beautiful group of clients… brides. Love to be inspired by them, their happiness and romanticism. It´s unique design challenge with each one of them every time.
Now working in a new line of products to complement my designs.
