Valeria Castillejo founded Valeria Cotoner in 2021. Born and raised in Madrid, Spain, Valeria's family roots are in Mallorca. Valeria has always been surrounded by nature, animals and women with impeccable taste, in a place where the notion of luxury means beautifully crafted garments made to last. She loves yoga, dogs, the sea and believes in a holistic approach to well being integrating mind, body and spirit.
Valeria moved to New York in 2016 to study Marketing at New York University, while she attended to evening pattern-making classes at Parsons University. After, she decides to honor her family’s heritage through the launch of her label, while she worked at the flower studio she co-founded in Manhattan: Bleecker Flower Shop.
Valeria brings her soul into each garment she produces. All underlying textiles and subsequently the clothes are designed by her, working alongside the producers directly at the source. Cotton is our most used fabric, being 100% organic. "We want to give a twist too cotton. People do not conceive it as a luxurious material, why not wearing it to a day wedding?".
Expect effortless silhouettes, bold colors and prints, conceived for women with personality, who appreciate detail and things well done.
