Colombian designer Jorge Afanador is an experienced architect with a background in industrial and interior design, fashion and arts. Creativity is the hallmark of his AFANADOR brand. In his designs fresh ideas are matched with raw materials, diversity of form and avant-garde concepts are mixed with art to bring an architectural element to clothing and jewelry with an environmental awareness. For spring/summer 2013, AFANADOR presents an exquisite collection which brings the past into the future, featuring a mixture of textures and raw organic materials made with traditional techniques.
AFANADOR's visionary concept of an inspiring lifestyle is complemented by a defined awareness of nature and landscape as well as the indigenious sub-cultures of Colombia. The primary focus of his unique designs is the expression of what nature offers humanity, while sending a clear message of environmental social responsibilty. AFANADOR has embraced his role as a versatile, solid designer who is simultaneously a tireless environmental activist in his country. For many years he has led important philanthropic initiatives like COOLOMBIACOOL, a well-known platform for Colombian designers, musicians, artists and professionals to show the world the beauty of Colombia.
SOS Landscape, the foundation for the preservation of landscapes around the world is the new initiative of AFANADOR. His dream is to preserve jungles, mountains, rivers, minerals, flora and fauna, not only in Colombia, but also in other countries across the globe.
Step Forward. Un Paso PaŽlante.
