My name is María Cecilia Guarás, I am a fashion designer, consultant and lecturer, specialized in Sociology of Design, Fashion Cultures and future scenarios. As a specialist in the Sociology of Design I feel highly enthusiastic about cross disciplinary work on the field of design, future concepts and fashion cultures and subcultures, seeking to explore macro and micro social trends, as well as their impact in the markets.
My experience reveals long-term commitment with contributing to the growth of fashion brands whilst working on the global agenda for sustainability. Out of the eleven years of professional experience I currently have, I have worked internationally with America and Asia, what allowed me to set networks within multidisciplinary teams, focusing on the implementation of sustainable processes on the whole designing and manufacturing chain.
I design, curate and merchandise fashion and textile collections and also give technical support to fashion brands as well as strategical for accurate prospective decision making.
