An unmistakable presence of Portuguese Fashion Weeks for over 20 years now, Katty Xiomara is one of the most renowned and established Portuguese designers of recent years. Her unique vision and perception of style, marked by an uncanny maturity, has led her from newcomer to business owner. Highly creative, Xiomara dives in on other areas besides fashion, with commissioned collections for TV, Theater, Music or Dance, some which with a strong social commitment supporting causes and institutions such as the Portuguese League Against Cancer or Associação Abraço. She is also a teacher and lecturer at Modatex in Porto.
Despite having received several awards and recognitions throughout her professional journey, Xiomara has kept true to her principles, without compromising the natural evolution and maturity of her collections. With quality as hallmark of each collection, each garment is made in an atelier by senior seamstresses, whose lifetime of art-honing skills are kept alive through each creation. All while putting a smile on their faces as they realize their active role in society with so much to teach to younger generations and all those willing to learn.
