OF HISTORY a successful route In two decades the ANA SOUSA brand has consolidated its position on the international scene, winning over the female fashion market, eager for elegance and glamour, thanks to its simplicity and distinction.

ANA SOUSA

the success of a WINNING BRAND With 66 stores around the world under the name ANA SOUSA, in countries such as Portugal, Spain, Russia, Luxembourg, South Africa and Switzerland, and also available in multi-brand stores in the United States of America, France, Angola, Portugal, Republic of Ireland, England, Germany, Norway and Holland, the ANA SOUSA brand is a paradigm of success in the category of women’s clothing.

S

tarting its activity in 1992, the ANA SOUSA brand began to be marketed, nationally and internationally, in multi-brand stores. Having received a good feedback in the first 6 years, the company Flor da Moda decided to invest in the brand and in the fashion designer Ana Sousa as its main asset and differentiator input in an increasingly demanding and competitive market. With the opening of the first flagship store in 1998, ANA SOUSA starts a national and international journey full of success. The customer approach was crucial to guide the marketing strategy of the ANA SOUSA collection, as well as the development of

ambitious marketing and communication campaigns, reinforcing the concept of the brand in the sales to multi-brand clients and, on the other hand, increasing the referral of the ANA SOUSA brand with the final consumers, due to the notoriety that the brand was winning within the female clientele. The successful launch of this store, as well as those that followed, was based on offering several proposals of the ANA SOUSA collection in a single commercial space and in presenting to the consumers a sophisticated, sober, elegant life style with a nuance slightly chic cosmopolitan.

ANA SOUSA

looking to win over the female fashion market The fashion designer Ana Sousa stands out for her taste, the staff for its elegance and their irreverent attitude, values which run through all their collections.

A

na Sousa’s way to success is a daring adventure in national and international fashion and her collections are always a reflection of her personality. Rather than create a brand, the designer Ana Sousa has always tried to create a reference store to allow her clients to anticipate, in each collection, a genuine trend. In order to achieve the proposed objectives for each collection, the fashion designer always seeks out nationally and internationally well-reputed personalities as the inspiring muses behind her collections. Reflecting the ideal female, they are

women who breathe an urban spirit with the elegance and class intrinsic in their way of acting and looking at life, meeting the creative principle of all the ANA SOUSA collections – dressing the cosmopolitan woman for all everyday situations. Having started her career at the tender age of 16, starting off by making exclusive outfits– what was almost a twist of fate saw her work recognised in 1992 when the company Flor da Moda decided to launch a brand in her own name, thereby paying tribute to the work she had carried out up till then.

In the next few pages you will get to know the brand and the collection which is adapted to all the geographic destinations and to the most varied cultures and nationalities as well as some of the muses inspiring the ANA SOUSA collections.

A

lways looking for markets with greater potential for economic growth, the ANA SOUSA brand selected Brazil, in the city of Natal, to stage the photographic shoot for the SpringSummer 2003 collection. With more than 192 million inhabitants, Brazil has become the dream destination for many international events. It’s the country chosen to host the FIFA World Cup in 2014 and the Summer Olympics in 2016. It is undoubtedly a country that is a top priority for any successful business plan. The Brazilian model Ana Garcia, whose CV boasts advertising campaigns for brands like Avon Perfumes, C&A and Cia. Marítima, was chosen as the face for this season.

The heat, sun, happiness and contagious hospitality of the Brazilian people inspired the stylist Ana Sousa to create a wonderful feminine but still relaxed, sensual and very romantic collection.

V

enice, one of the most romantic cities in Italy, visited annually by around 12 million people, was the setting chosen by the stylist Ana Sousa for the photographic shoot for the Autumn-Winter 2003/04 collection. The city’s renowned Carnival served as the inspiration for a catalogue in which the costumes characteristic of the 17th century and the exclusive masks are mixed with the elegance and glamour of a collection designed for a cosmopolitan woman. It could even be said that Venice lent all its mysticism to the most exciting catalogue ever of the ANA SOUSA brand.

For the history of the ANA SOUSA brand, the images became famous in d’El Capitólio, the central offices of the Cuban Government until the Cuban revolution in 1959 and it is currently the main office of the Cuban academy of sciences. Its architectural lines were inspired in the United States Capitol in Washington.

14


2004 was also characterised in the history of the ANA SOUSA brand for the launch of a line of bikinis and beach accessories. The hot climate, the clear waters and the Latin-American rhythm of Cuba inspired the fashion designer to launch this new collection line, called Swimwear.

ose & Fit Jeans are a line of jeans patented internationally (Pat. Pend. PCT 2012/053941) and which have proven to be a real slimming, hydration and firming spa by means of a very specific pattern developed by the stylist Ana Sousa. By way of a bioactive finish applied when washing denim based on extracts of chilli, raspberry and squalene, the

slimming spa

female body is remodelled from the leg to the waist. The combination of these ingredients stimulates the blood circulation, hydrating the skin and serving as a powerful anti-oxidant. It is by means of this imperceptible increase in body temperature that Lose & Fit jeans help to lose accumulated fat (“Lose”) and more quickly achieve good physical shape (“Fit”).

A real olfactory stimulation therapy which surprises the central nervous

system in seconds with aromas like lavender, lemon or mint. Endowed with antiseptic, anti-depressive and refreshing properties, the Aromatherapy T-shirt takes on the mantle of an optimum ally in the fight against anxiety and the sensation of physical and emotional exhaustion.

pain was the country chosen by the ANA SOUSA brand to include its first monobrand store in Lugo in 1998. With the success achieved in Lugo and, immediately afterwards, in Vigo, the brand decided to commit to the creation of its own store network.

Spanish women are incredibly concerned about their appearance, particularly when they’re getting dressed, whether it’s for work or fun. They are demanding when they go shopping and they tend to go for luxurious, glamorous pieces which can make any outfit shine.

Forming the bridge between different cultures and traditions, Spain is one of the top five markets in the fashion sector Europeanwide and it has major distribution groups, many of them with a multinational presence, as well as with a vast and diversified global supply chain.

In view of this approach and all its inherent femininity, the ANA SOUSA brand has managed to become a reference on the Spanish fashion market. At present, ANA SOUSA has 5 stores in Spain situated in the cities of Lugo, Vigo, Pontevedra, Ourense and Vilagarcia and a growing presence at multibrand stores.


SWITZERLAND The ANA SOUSA brand has found on the Swiss market the charisma, lust for life, elegance and fashion sense which combine perfectly with the values the brand puts forward.

Switzerland, besides being one of the richest countries in the world with the best quality of life, was also considered as the best country to be born in 2013.

The geographic location, political and economic stability, the well-preserved infrastructures, the higher education and relatively moderate taxes have

Women seek elegance for all moments of daily life, making Switzerland the perfect place to invest at the ANA SOUSA brand.

Since it is a country specialised in banking and tourist services with strong pharmaceutical and luxury goods’ industries (watches and jewellery), Swiss consumers have acquired a quick-witted awareness of fashion and a natural taste for sophistication.
