Melissa Valencia Sarmiento is a fashion designer born in Honduras but grew up living in different parts of the world due to her father’s diplomatic background. She studied in Italy, London and USA. Being the daughter of an ambassador she feels the responsibility to be an ambassador by giving her absolute best in everything she does.
Her newest brand is called DISEGNO. Melissa believes her past experience in different design projects has led her to where she is today… being the creative director of her own brand.
Disegno’s DNA is best described as wearable art combined with accessible luxe and timeless classics. The main goal is to create cutting edge and inspirational pieces that resemble the empowerment of art.
This collection is inspired by Ciseron, a renowned Honduran artist characterized by the use of strong and lively colors in his paintings. The brand’s portfolio includes ready to wear, bags and clutches.
