Born in the beautiful city of Pontevedra (Spain) and with her passport full of entry stamps: Educated in Rome, Pontevedra and NY before turning 18. She studied a business degree at the University of Santiago de Compostela and a Masters in fashion at the Instituto Marangoni, in Milan. From there, everything starting rolling: first an internship with DVF in NY, where she attended her first NYFW, to then spend 5 years working in the Accessories design department of CH Carolina Herrera and Purificación Garcia. During a brief stay in London, she decided to move to this city and accept a position at Amanda Wakeley. A few years later, and with 8 years in the luxury accessories industry under her belt, she started her own brand - Iria de Ana - in London.
Iria de Ana creates classic LUXURY leather goods with timeless elegance, and a kick of contemporary chic.
Versatile handbags for the day through night of the corporate lady. Designed in London, made with exquisite Italian leathers and handcrafted in Spain by experienced artisans, that give these leather goods a sophisticated touch. The small leather goods are handmade in the Uk and can be personalised with initials to make each piece unique. The Warrior Queen Collection is inspired in warrior queens that have changed history. From the Iceni queen Boudicca to Matilda of Canossa. These women knew how to command from a throne. But what is more appealing, is that they also wore their armours to go into battle with their soldier, or commanded their own fleet of ship. These are strong women, knowledgeable, educated and hard to intimidate. I adore these women. They are my inspiration.
