Susana was born in New Jersey. Growing up surrounded by art and sculpture, it sparked her ardor for color and classic lines. Susana's father was an engineer and tailor. He owned an apparel manufacturing company which he started in the 1960’s where he made women’s suits. Susana gained full exposure to the ins and outs of tailoring a garment at an early age and by the time she reached her early teens, she was proficient in the technical details.
At seventeen years old, Susana moved to New York City where she studied design at the Fashion Institute of
Technology. If she wasn’t studying, she was sketching, and her early designs were met with rave reviews from her friends and peers. After graduating, Susana moved to Miami where, infused with the warmth of the tropics, she showcased her
collection to a number of boutiques. The verdict was unanimous – they loved it. Propelled by her success, Susana moved back to New York in 2000 to open her own showroom.
Susana’s designs have garnered worldwide recognition. Her loyal following is drawn to the high quality fabrics, meticulous attention to detail, and the clothing’s timeless appeal.
