Andrea is a Panamanian fashion designer who has been an art lover since her childhood. She grew up training as a ballet dancer and participating in various international competitions until the age of 19.
She enrolled into law school at the age of 18, and later graduated with a degree in Law and Political Sciences at the Universidad Santa María la Antigua, in Panama City, Panama. Once she obtained this merit, Andrea felt the urge to create again, so she returned to the art world through fashion design.
After completing an “Introduction to Fashion Design” summer course at Parsons, The New School, in New York City, she decided to continue her studies at the Marangoni Institute in Milan, Italy, where she graduated as a Fashion Designer.
In early 2015, at the age of 24, Andrea created her label “SOUSA PITTI” in which she currently serves as the Creative Director.
Sousa Pitti is a High Fashion Design House based in Panama City, Panama. The origin of the name comes from Andrea’s paternal and maternal last names in an attempt to honor all of the help and support they have both provided during her life and career path.
So far, the label has launched two collections: the Spring-Summer 2015 collection, launched at the 2015 Macro Fest Panama, and the Spring-Summer 2016 collection launched in the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Panama 2015. The label also offers made to measure services for special occasions.
