Pilar Torrecillas, the brand’s creative director, was born in Granada. Its evolution is marked by an environment closely linked to the world of architecture. After finishing her studies in Spain, the United Kingdom and France, she worked as a fashion collections buyer in Paris for six years. Her love for design, for her job and for her hometown has led her, after a decade abroad, to return to Spain with an international vision to create her own brand in 2000.
Her DNA has been modelled over the years in what Pilar understands as a hybrid between two profiles, that of designer as a creative soul and that of a brand, due to her capacity for production and marketing. In 2005 she received the Flag of Andalusia.
Each garment is designed, made from start to finish and distributed from their workshops in Granada in a commitment to "made in Spain" and handmade products.
Pilar Dalbat has developed a method of working that is all her own through her relationship with architecture and her defence and enhancement of heritage spaces. The places she chooses to show her creations inspire the creative process of each collection. She looks upon her collections as a whole and conceives sensory staging that goes beyond the usual formats.
Her signature collections are present in the most prestigious showrooms and points of sale in Spain and abroad. Her work is marked by a contemporary vision of fashion capable of creating garments whose design stands the test of time.
The brand presents its collections twice a year at the MBFWM. She has been a guest designer at the RFW (Russian Fashion Week), in Paris and the Czech Republic and has presented her collections several times in Tokyo.
Pilar collaborates with artists from very diverse fields and is a lecturer at the University of Granada as well as at many of the Art Schools and fashion education centres in Spain.
