Venezuelan fashion designer Sharon Ospino featured in British Vogue (includes video story)

Sharon Ospino has always been fascinated by fashion. Her designs, known for their luxurious fabrics and detailed techniques, embody timeless elegance and sophistication.

Born in Caracas on July 26, 1994, she was introduced to the art of sewing by her grandmother at the age of nine. When Sharon was growing up in Venezuela, her family had a small business that sold ready-to-wear clothing. At age 19, she decided to move to the United States in hopes of expanding her fashion career. Establishing herself in the country, she began designing couture garments with exquisite hand embroidery.

The designer has an atelier in Miami, located at 25 SE 2nd Ave #1145, Miami, FL 33131, where she specializes in high-end couture gowns and cocktail dresses.

As a child, Sharon Ospino would read and collect Vogue magazines; more recently her creations could be found in the December 2017 issue of British Vogue. Fashion has been a passion of hers, and the recognition she has received from British Vogue is the ultimate validation.
