Virginia Borrero tributes her brand’s name to her mother, an artist who continually inspires her.
Having grown up surrounded by women who were excellent seamstresses, Borrero developed her passion for clothing at a young age. She later studied fashion in Bogota and worked with pioneer designer Olga Piedrahita and her daughter, Danielle Lafaurie. At their suggestion, Borrero travelled to Jaipur, India, to work with the Kasliwal family of The Gem Palace. After three years living between India and Colombia, Borrero finally settled in Jaipur, where she launched her label in partnership with Sanjay and Samir Kasliwal.
With the desire to bridge two worlds, Borrero designs vibrant pieces that fuse unique patterns, prints and embroideries with effortless and modern silhouettes. De Castro is the fusion of two countries, and our fabrics reflect that as well. De Castro gets inspiration from traditional Ikat designs. After finding an inspiring design, they give an electrical twist to the basic design, using color, contrast and additional elements.
All De Castro pieces are made in the label’s atelier in Jaipur by the brand’s three tailors, each of whom specializes in their own line of work: dresses, pants, and hand embroidery. An eager patron of craftsmanship, Borrero makes a point of using local, hand loomed textiles of the highest quality for De Castro designer collections. She is also keen on recovering and giving a fresh spin to traditional materials, like the handwoven, natural fibre khadi, as well as dyeing techniques like the famous, yet complicated to find, double ikat. De Castro designer collections recently started producing their own ikats in Hyderabad, where experts can take over a month to produce 25 meters of this dyed fabric.
