Ada Zanditon, born and based in London, is an award winning fashion designer, illustrator and first class graduate of the London College of Fashion. Zanditon creates elegant sculptural couture, hand constructed in East London using innovative materials and techniques. The narrative of Zanditon’s work comes from a scientific perspective on the environment, contemporary architectural forms, blending historical journeys with future fantasy. “I am always inspired by imagining the persona of a Baroque warrior goddess and using the idea of who she would be as a divine feminine archetype.” The Ada Zanditon woman is intelligent, confident and strong and seeks out elegant, sophisticated luxury. She is a warrior goddess of the modern world. Zanditon has notably been worn by Rita Ora, Lily Cole, Caryn Franklin (MBE), Katie Melua, Shingai Shoniwa (The Noisettes), Bishi, Ana Matronic (Scissor Sisters), Viktoria Modesta, Leah Weller & Jameela Jamil. Zanditon debuted with ready-to-wear at London Fashion Week in 2010, chosen for the Fashion Scout Ones to Watch show. Since then, she has shown at Somerset House as well as at Berlin Fashion Week and was selected to judge the eco award at Graduate Fashion Week in 2013. This year sees the expansion of the brand to focus on couture and bespoke concepts - Zanditon’s core vision and greatest passion. After exclusively announcing the expansion of the brand via WWD, Zanditon unveiled her first couture collection in September 2014 at London Fashion Week. Zanditon has been featured in a wide range of press globally, including British, Russian, Italian & Indian Vogue, WWD, Wonderland, i-D, Elle, Times Luxx, Observer and many more.
