She dared to dream ,From the age of six until she was eight, Flora lived with her grandmother in a small Village, Chile. Her school was a three mile walk from home. This long journey took her through rocky terrain with few trees, but a wonderful view of the Andean mountains. Young Flora dreamed up other worlds whilst she stared up at the Andes. Upon this stark landscape, her imagination painted vivid creations. She even thought if she could climb to the top of the mountain, she would be able to touch the sky.
Flora’s love of the ethereal and delight in unimaginable beauty stayed with her into adult life.
Flora longed to make beautiful things for other women to delight in. Her dream was to start her own luxury brand, so she began her journey towards this goal. Whilst still living in Chile, she studied at the Haute Couture Academy. Since making her home in London, Flora refreshed her knowledge at the London College of Fashion. She also gained experience in high end retail, to understand the desires of women looking for luxurious items.
