Spring just arrived and I am already thinking of Fall and Winter 2018 collections! But Johanna Ortiz’s ready-to-wear gracefully sets you at the epicenter of this year’s forward thinking fashion. Move with the looks that will be setting fires from boardrooms to cocktail party – elegant, comfortable and powerful.
Take one of the distinctive looks from her collection expressly cultivated to turn heads and express your personal authority and autonomy through à la carte accents. Alternatively, create your signature look by matching pieces from the collection, one by one from head to toe. Floral prints, extravagant feathers and sexy frilled dresses – all of which describes Ortiz’s new collection. What makes this one extra special is that opposites-attract combination of tailored masculine pieces with Ortiz’s signature ruffles. Fabulous!
This designer couture is based on the concept of natural embellishment – the physical representative of your personal aura. You are grounded, abundant, statuesque and feminine with a sense of purpose and beauty that can set the intention for an entire room. Yes, you are the one in control of yourself and of your environment.
Johanna Ortiz is holistic fashion, with a look for every sense and feeling. Express yourself in real time and with every element of your thoughts. Fusion culture is a staple of her brand, as well as a connection between dreams and reality. You will see her passion for Oriental silk (love it), with the flow of her dresses taking cues from the elegant language used to describe the nymphs and fairies of European poetry.
Her Exclusive Lady Godiva Scarf takes inspiration from the chocolate of the same name. If you need something a bit more straightforward, her Wool Raise the Roof Trouser (want!) exudes a Western stoicism that will make you the most powerful person in the room.
I also like that Ortiz supports craftswomen in her native Colombia, where her clothing are made.
Visit M’oda ‘Operandi’s website to engage and ignite your most feminine instincts. You have until April 02 to preorder items from Johanna Ortiz’s Fall and Winter 2018 Collection. I know some items are optional and very pricy, but I show them to you as a source of inspiration. The more classic items (which are still very unique) are investment pieces and highly recommended. 150% worth it! Judge for yourself.
