CORAL CASTILLO Presented by MOSS ADAMS
BIO; Born in Mexico City and now based in Los Angeles, Coral found her passion for designing clothing at a very young age. Her mom was a dress-maker and Coral grew up with the exposure to fine fabrics and custom made clothing. In 2005, she started designing for selected clientele, without any guidance or training in fashion. Once she decided to pursue her passion she studied Fashion Design at The Art Institute of California – San Francisco.
“Graduating with a Bachelors of Fine Arts in Fashion Design she received honors and was awarded best portfolio for fall 2012. In 2009, she won best overall effect for the Art Institute of California-San Francisco Fashion Show. Other awards include Best of Women’s DayWear for Discarded to Divine 2009 and 2010, 1st place in a design competition for OC-Fashion Week in 2011, and in 2013 Coral was recognized as one of the best designers in Orange County. Her work has been published in VOGUE Italia, VOGUE UK, RIVIERA, APPAREL NEWS, BLACK&GREY and SAN FRANCISCO CHRONICLE. This October Coral joins LA Fashion Week on behalf of the prestigious Moss Adams ‘Mossy Award’, and as a nominee will be debuting a brand new collection for the fashion community.
