Jophiel’s Designer Grade series is delighted to introduce you to Tissa Fontaneda. Who can resist the supple bubble leather of a Tissa Fontaneda handbag? Even looking at them from afar, you can sense the softness of their leather. How does an accessory accentuate the uniqueness of the woman? We connected with Tissa to understand more about her eponymous line and discovered how lucky we are to have her designing for the women of the world.
Beyond the trends and the fads, the “It” bags and the influencers, you will find Tissa Fontaneda. Her love of beauty is deeply rooted, and her expertise in the world of luxury built from years of experience at notable brands like Swarovski, Loewe, Narciso Rodriguez and Louis Vuitton. But what drives her most? “Working with amazing artisans and people who are passionate about what they are doing.” “I am definitely designing for independent, international women. Women who are looking for beauty before brand.”
When it comes to sourcing materials, she ensures quality and excellence simply by choosing to work with the best leather manufactures in the world. For her, fashion’s ability to transform ordinary objects into beauty is all about creativity! “Also, creating beautiful things must be the main impulse… not making a profit.” That distinction becomes apparent when her exquisite accessory line elevates even the most basic of ensembles to another level. “It’s a must for me,” she says! That is the reason why woman continue to come back to her line.
