Commitment to Sustainability
Designer and Founder
Ana Evaristo is the Designer and founder of ABLESIA.
With a degree in Product Design, her vision of designing clothing is a bit different because of the product background.
Ana learned hands-on about the practical issues of creating garments and design, through working closely with an experiment seamstress. This helped Ana to hone in on her technical design and learn to create unique one of a kind designs for her customers. Ana learned the different techniques by deconstructing different clothing and really understanding how all of the pieces fit together.
Learning the practical issues with an experienced seamstress, Ana learns a lot and grows her knowledge making arrangements and clothes by measure. With that, she was able to see and learn different techniques applied by brands when dismantling pieces of clothing.
After that experiment time course she decided to go to Modatex, a school of fashion in Lisbon, Portugal, and there she learned pattern cutting and moulage techniques, and that technique gave her more freedom to give shape to her models.
ABLESIA was created with concepts and values that are intimately linked to Ana’s personality and vision of life.
The basic values that form the fundamental structure of ABLESIA include:
1) kindness and respect for all human beings
2)Respect for animals
3) Respect for nature
To minimalist and simple values from kindness and respect for all human beings, animals, and Nature, all of them are the fundamental structure of ABLESIA.
Curiosity: at the first 3 years, besides the design and the work related to the brand, Ana was the one to produce all the ABLESIA pieces, since pattern, cutting, and sewing. Even nowadays the patterns and the cutting of the fabrics still are made in her small studio in Setúbal, Portugal.
