Irma Bravo is a US-born, Venezuelan architect with a degree in Fashion Design from Parsons School of Design. Her creative work, a marriage between these two passions, has been included in collections and projects of brands such as Michael Kors, Elie Tahari and the Rockwell Group, as well as being displayed in Vogue and Elle magazines. To fulfill her childhood dream of engaging in social activities, she led two pioneering projects: JungleCHICk-a sustainable fashion business brand to empower artisan communities in Venezuela– and PrincesaLuna, a line of kid’s accessories that spread values and positivity among children. After being diagnosed with bipolar disorder-in her case leaning only towards mania- she shares her surreal journey and the optimistic insights she got from it. Her hope is to raise awareness about a still very misunderstood illness.
