Andrea Landa

Andrea Landa was born in Medellín, Colombia in 1986.

Her fascination with fashion started at a young age because of her talented mother who had her own fashion brand specialised in leather accessories. An ordinary afternoon was helping her mother develop a new collection and making different colour combinations with leather. She often accompanied her to leather trade shows in Italy and other places where Andrea developed a strong taste and knowledge for this material.
