After 12 years in couture and luxury fashion , working across European brands and opening first his American atelier, Juan Carlos Quintana decided to open a Couture House in London.
Quintana's philosophy derives from artistic pursuit; the passion is in the craft and his inspiration is a feminine woman who delights in luxury and individuality.
Quintana's passion for colour and texture derive from his Guatemalan roots and his couture knowledge was further honed by the tutoring of two Spanish masters from the school of Balenciaga.
Set over two floors and looking into a Victorian courtyard, Quintana manages a small and talented team who carry out all of the design and workmanship in-house. Every step must be overseen as a Haute Couture finish requires the highest levels of detail and expertise. From importing luxurious and exotic textiles to hand finishing with crystal beads and silk thread, every element of the finish is strictly monitored in the London based Atelier.
Nothing in his house is mass-produced; every single piece is artisan and has been created with one woman in mind. In a sense, you are his muse.
