ABOUT ME


Inés López-Balcells. 23 years old. Graduated in Business Administration & Management at Universidad Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona & in Fashion Design at Istituto Marangoni in Paris. A combination that allows me to build a bridge between business and creativity, designing innovative and original garments adapted to the latest trends but also realistic and commercial. My style is characterized for being “ simply complex”. Minimal silhouettes where details and finishings make the difference. Garments are long lasting essentials, standing out for the quality of their materials. Feminine spanish style with a sporty feel and a young attitude. I design for natural women who want to look elegant and beautiful while being comfortable. They look for easy wearable clothes to combine into effortless looks that reflect confindence and personality. I am a very hard working person, decided and driven, with clear ideas, but most important, I am eager to learn and give the best of me.

To  whom  it  may  concern,                          It  is  with  great  pleasure  that  I  am  recommending    to  you    Miss  Inés  López-­‐ Balcells,  one  of  the  students  I  had  the  pleasure  of  teaching  during  the  one-­‐year   intensive  course  in  Fashion  Design  at  Istituto  Marangoni,  Paris.                          Through  the  academic  year,  I  have  been  witness  to  Ines’s  growth  and   development  as  a  designer  through  her  illustration  work,  conceptual  thought   and  design  skills.   Since  the  start  of  the  first  trimester,  as  Ines’s  illustration  tutor  and  later  as  her   design  tutor,  Ines  has  not  only  shown  great  skills  but  also  a  desire  to  be  involved   in  fashion  and  an  eagerness  to  learn  and  experiment.  Ines  accepts  feedback  well   and  applies  this  constructively  into  her  work,  yet  maintaining  her  unique  style,   which  is  evident  throughout  her  work.                        Ines  also  demonstrated  her  professionalism  through  her  layout  and   technical  files.  She  dominates  Illustrator,  InDesign,  and  Photoshop  in  addition  to   has  a  strong  visual  perception  and  always  finishes  before  the  deadline.                        Ines  is  a  hard  worker,  dedicated,  pushes  herself  to  think  outside  the  box   and  has  developed  collections  this  year  that  demonstrate  this.     I’m  certain  that  Ines  can  adapt  her  artistic  and  organized  approach  to  any  project   and  will  be  a  valuable  asset  for  any  company.                        It  is  with  this  in  mind  that  I  highly  recommend  Ines  for  a  position  in  your   design  team.     Should  you  have  any  question,  please  do  not  hesitate  to  contact  me.       Sincerely,   Adi  Maoz   Tutor  at  Istituto  Marangoni,  Paris.
