CeliaB is a Spanish brand founded in 2012. They design fun, passionate, and timeless clothing that make women shine! With passion for textiles and craftsmanship and a strong commitment to make garments that will last forever in your wardrobe.
Celia Bernardo is the founder, heart and soul of the brand. With a love for vibrant color, complicated knitting and the ability to create beauty from chaos and clash, she is on a mission to bring laughter and pleasure to all who wear her creations.
Celia’s designs showcase inspiration stemming from her travels across the globe, from stripes seen in Rajasthan to batiks from Indonesia. Her use of traditional motifs seamlessly blends with exaggerated textures and bold bursts of print and color.
After studying Advertising & PR in Madrid and Fashion Communication in Milan, Celia escaped to Ibiza where she designed and sold jewellery. Then she spent the next ten years working with brands like Zara, Pepe Jeans and Asobio. But her love of travel and the weird and wonderful possibilities of color, wool and contradiction meant that the fast fashion industry couldn't hold on to her forever. In 2012, Celia B struck out on her own and started to make pieces for herself again. Channelling her love for travel and her passion for handcrafted pieces, she collects textiles, patterns and inspiration from all over the world: from the jungles and beaches of Latin America to Moroccan medinas.
CELIA B'S MANIFIESTO
Celia B firmly believe in empowering people to feel special and unique by creating timeless, fun and unusual designs that transmit to those wearing them a spirit of uniqueness and freedom that goes beyond fashion trends.
They believe in breaking molds defined by the fast fashion industry, defending no season collections. They develop timeless capsule collections so our customers can buy our designs when they need them and not when the fashion industry tells them to.
They give major importance to the relationship you build with the clothes you wear, what you communicate to others through your attire, but most importantly how does it make you feel by wearing them. They design garments that have a story behind, and by doing this they create a cultural and emotional connection with the final user of our CeliaB designs.
They focus on making high quality garments that you will fall in love with, that have a cultural and artistic link and that will have a longer and happier life than those made only to last six months. Reducing the amount of clothes we buy every season, will have a better impact in the production and consume cycle, and therefore also will have less of an ecological impact.
Above all Celia B believes in the power of diversity. They want to push boundaries by proposing a new way of dressing and a revolutionary attitude towards fashion. They break the mould to celebrate an international global spirit that enhances the biodiversity of the world by mixing aesthetics, traditions, techniques, colors and patterns in our own unique way.
