Creativity and innovation define Isabel Zapardiez’s career and her experience in various design disciplines, although bridal design is her main hallmark.
Isabel's passion for dressmaking is in her DNA. Her very early interest in sewing and pattern designing mark her life, her career development and the way she works. A Basque Country University Graduate in Dressmaking and Pattern Designing, she has got a degree in fashion design and has completed specializations in Madrid and Barcelona.
During a first stage, she developed her professional life in the world of Prêt à Porter, with her own brand and collaborating with other fashion brands on various projects. In 2002 she entered the world of Haute Couture and opened her first studio in San Sebastian, designing wedding dresses and clothing for special occasions. Her approach is to address the "total look" of women in key moments of their lifes, be it a wedding or other events.
Her work is framed within the universe of Couture, due to the delicacy of fabrics, the exclusivity of designs and detail tailoring carried out at her workshop in San Sebastian. Her arguments are elegance and subtlety, but also avant-garde, originality and the courage to set her own path to interpret the essence of every woman in a dress.
Isabel Zapardiez’s inspiration is made of contrasts and fusions, concepts and life experiences, made of the professional experience of all women she has dressed and the references to the aesthetic worlds she is passionate for.
Isabel Zapardiez’s designs are present in important international catwalks, her participation in the Gaudí fashion shows, within the Barcelona Bridal Week, stand out especially. She has also participated in the New York Couture Fashion Week and the London World Bridal Show, among other events.
