AVASAN is a luxury brand that celebrates sustainability and love through exclusive collections that are both minimalist and fashionable. With an ethos that combines the joyful spirit of Spain with the sophisticated and urban-chic style of Japan, the garments by AVASAN represent a textile collage that evokes respect and harmony between different civilizations.
There is an obsessive attention to details and a never-ending inspiration by art. AVASAN is committed to composing a modern, circular and responsible fashion world, under the philosophy: "there is nothing more sustainable than what already exists".
AVASAN collaborates and interacts with other artists that promote quality fashion and respect for the environment.
Amy Valentine, The Founder
Avasan began its journey on Summer 2017 with the holistic mission of creating a circular fashion brand through clothes designed with deadstock luxury fabrics, seasoned with exclusive embroidery, artistic paintings or accessories applied by hand.
After a long trip across Japan, Amy Valentine, founder and creative director in AVASAN, became a loyal lover of Kimonos, and decided to create a sustainable fashion brand that represents the meeting of cultures and the relative inclusiveness among them, as an irreversible choice to this very day. AVASAN was born as a fusion of men’s Japanese tailoring techniques and feminine lines with sustainability at its brand core.
With references from Art, theater and a modern, genderless twist, Kimono Collections by AVASAN are becoming a hit among international press and fashion buyers alike.
Born in New York and established in Spain, Amy brings a diverse background of tradition, handcraft, design experience, and aesthetic vision to her collections. The lush, individual shapes with detailed embellishments through embroidery and structures, as well as the unconventional handling of textures and the reversible designs, create fashion with couture aspects, from high-quality materials, which is handmade and limited.
Currently, Amy Valentine is working on the creation of a new romantic Cruise Collection, inspired by her love for the Mediterranean spirit.
“I recover forgotten textile treasures from abandoned factories and turn them into unique garments”
Amy Valentine seeks to introduce the beauty of the kimono into daily life while respecting the handmade and making each piece unique and special.
AVASAN finds inspiration in Japanese culture to make its personal interpretation of the kimono and take it from the ceremony to the everyday, to exquisite pieces made with silk, wool, banana fiber and organic cotton. The Kimonos reflect the search between east and west.
The harmony between the colors, shapes and textures of fabrics from different corners of the World, mixed with organic based fabrics and the upcycling of fabrics from Spanish dead stock.
AVASAN-Kimonos are embellished with embroidery and show an exclusive blend of traditional fabrics from different parts of the world with recycled fabrics. All designs are handcrafted, available as limited series or unique pieces.
