Adan Avila is a 23-year-old Hispanic man. Who is a recent fashion design graduate, embarking on his career. As a fashion designer, there is no guideline or process to grow and establish yourself after graduating. Especially with covid and the uncertainty that comes with it.
If you would’ve asked what I wanted to be when I was 15, I would not have had an answer only because I didn't know fashion design was a career. I remember seeing the Hispanic award show Premios de Lo Nuestro. I loved seeing all the elegant gowns and the presence that the celebrities demanded as they strutted. That brought fashion into my life and made it my passion to make clients a garment that makes them feel grand and beautiful. The inspiration in my designs is unorthodox, I like to blend femininity with a strong demeanor. Couture techniques always amazed me. The craft and the high quality of construction, which I bring to my garments.
The name of my brand is Ad’Ann, which is a mix of my name Adan and my mother’s middle name Ann. My aspirations are to make exclusive high-end custom pieces for clients. No matter what gender, size, and sexuality. I want everyone to have the opportunity to represent their best and beautiful self. I want to inspire others to do what they have passion for because it’s never a waste of time if it makes you happy!
