A native of Lima, Peru, Lorena Cabrera’s journey in fashion began when she was very young. She initially studied architecture but after a few years decided to switch focus and pursue a degree in apparel design at The Art Institute of Portland.

“Although I decided not pursue architecture as my career, I am still deeply inspired by many aspects of architecture,” she says.

“I love the idea of creating spaces and different shapes using the body as my canvas. My ability to adapt and embrace the changes that life brings keeps me open to new opportunities and allows me to continue learning as a designer.”
