About Cris Barros
Barely eight years in the market, Cris Barros has already become a reference for elegant women who want to dress in a distinguished, creative style.
Its creations sport an apparent simplicity, but reveal a wealth of details and forms that are carefully built in moulage, special fabrics, and surprising finishings.
Cris Barros started in the fashion world as a successful model. After studying fashion and design at Anhembi Morumbi College, she worked as an intern at Cia Marítima. Later, she decided to pursue a master's degree at the prestigious Instituto Marangoni, in Milan. Based in Italy, Cris worked with French designer Stephan Janson, who was once Yves Saint Laurent's assistant and who also designed Dianne Von Funstenberg's collections. Back in Brazil, she joined the marketing departments of clothing manufacturer Zoomp and Internet portal IG, while still working on her own style of clothing. All this experience and a feeling that there was an opportunity in the market for her distinguished fashion, led the designer to establish her brand in 2002.
