Ester Ferrando was born in Vilanova i la Geltrú, Barcelona. From a very young age she began to develop her passion for hand knitting and crochet. After completing her degree at the “Escola d’Arts i Tècniques de Barcelona” (ESDI), specializing in Knitwear, she graduated with Honors in Fashion from the prestigious Winchester School of Arts (UK).
Passionate, curious and innovative, Ester started working as an assistant designer in various projects at Pineapple Studios in London and Studio Orta in Paris. Back in Barcelona, she collaborated with various prestigious brands and designers like Josep Font, Javier Simorra, Pedro Morago or Georgina Vendrell. Along the following years she was committed to education, teaching Technical Design and Knitwear in various Fashion Schools in Barcelona.
In 2012 Ester launches her own firm, ESTER FERRANDO – KNITWEAR, from her workshop in Barcelona, fully focused on knitwear. The exquisite quality of the materials has been, from the beginning, one of the main features of her creations. With them she creates and develops garments with original textures, visual effects and exquisite colourful combinations.
