Barrera was founded in September 2011 prior to its first large presentation, Colorado Fashion Week, were 15 evening gowns and ready-to-wear pieces were
presented as part of the Fall collection. Barrera prouds itself in offering the highest quality of textiles, manufacturing and creativity. Every garment is design exclusively and mainly
cut, assembled, stitched and sewn by hand.
Barrera believes in quality over quanity and our designs are inpired by nature, culture, most current trends, and our designer's travels and
aspirations. The creation of the Barrera label, registered under Barrera International L.L.C. became a reality after not only experiencing an internship with the world renowned designer, Tom
Ford, but also from the desire to create clothes for women while reinventing a lost elegance and creating to fit into the modern world.
