Sigfrido Holguin

Sigfrido

 

Sigfrido Holguin's designs exude urban cool with downtown attitude.  His work includes edgy apparel collaborations with bespoke tailors, innovative textiles, handbags and accessories with iconic silhouettes that inspire an enviable desire for the good things in life.

Sigfrido hails from the Dominican Republic, where the smell of leather in his grandfather’s atelier permeates his earliest memories. His abuelo was a cobbler who designed an array of exquisite leather pieces, from ladies heels to gun holsters. Time spent in this imaginative environment infused Sigfrido with an appreciation for all things old world, and the idea that now more than ever in this increasingly frenetic, modern world, it is quality and beauty that endures. Sigfrido trained at the prestigious Altos de Chavon Design school in La Romana and Parsons School of Design in New York City and has been designing in the fashion industry for over a decade.
