SW | ABOUT | SANDRA WEIL
For more than 12 years, fashion has been my way of discovering the world, expressing myself and relating to people around the world. #sandraweil is a life project that was born from the deepest bottom of my heart with the purpose of expressing my artistic vision through fashion.
I discovered that clothing has a powerful and profound capacity to make us feel good. All my designs are created to translate the personality of those who wear them, to highlight their creative power and the energy and strength of each woman. I’m sure that no matter how we use fashion, it can be a great healer. We believe that in this way we create a better world, a world that vibrates in love.
We have been growing organically, thanks to this shared vision with all those who collaborate in this process of creating clothes.
Our company has always been involved in different social projects in a conscious and reserved way. Today we understand that this work becomes even more relevant for our community, which excites us a lot!
Sandra Weil is committed to creating a diverse environment and is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. We hire great people from a wide variety of backgrounds, not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because it makes our company stronger. We continually celebrate the diverse community different individuals cultivate.
We have been overcoming the adversities under a mantra:
Be the change you wish to see.
The only constant in life is change
Since it was first launched in 2012, luxury womenswear brand Sandra Weil [ vyle] quickly established itself as a major player in the creative map of Mexico and Latin America.
Her collections always begin from the same starting point: the soul of the dresses, the fabrics that give life to unexpected silhouettes conceived for a contemporary woman.
Weil was born in Peru, in a multicultural family that traces its roots from Turkey, Germany, Brazil, and Romania. Her passion for fashion and design was transmitted to her since childhood when she spent days in her grandmother’s sewing workshop. As the years went by she naturally created her first dress for a friend. The design became an object of desire among her client’s circle. She went on to study Visual Arts with a minor in Graphic Design at the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru and then enrolled at the University Felicidad Ducé in Barcelona, where she specialized in Haute Couture.
After she concluded her studies, she moved to Mexico City in 2008. Her entrepreneurial spirit was fostered in this place and in 2012 she launched her first ready-to-wear collection.
Two years later, in 2014, Sandra Weil opened its flagship store on Emilio Castelar 185, Polanco in Mexico City.
