Sybilla

(1963). Designer who is symbolic of the Spanish movement in the 1980s. It is her decomposition of form, overlaying of fabrics, and use of non-gaudy colors that are her characteristics. Born in New York to an Argentine father and a Polish mother, after a brief period as an apprentice at Saint Laurent in Paris, she presented her first collection in Madrid at the age of just 20. Her second défilé, in 1985 at the GaudÕ show in Barcelona, brought her general recognition. From 1987 until 1992, she linked up with Gibò, an Italian textile group, and in 1988 showed at Milano Collezioni. The Itokin group manufactures and distributes her label in Japan. In 1993/1994, she launched a young line, calling it Jocomomola, and in 1996, she designed a rucksack for Vuitton.
&Quad;2001. Jocomomola, a licensed line arising from Itokin’s contract with the Spanish group, recorded an increase of 30%. The new women’s line was therefore renamed Jocomomola de Sybilla to reinforce the identity of the Spanish brand and appeal to its existing clients.
&Quad;2003, July. Capucci presented evening wear designed by the Spanish designer in Paris.
&Quad;2003. For Fall-Winter 2003-2004, the new line was produced under a license by Pier di Mogliano Veneto (Treviso) and distributed internationally by Daniele Ghiselli’s Milan studio.
