My name is Barbara Mc Guire, fashion designer and visual artist from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
I majored in fashion and textile design at the Universidad de Palermo. I worked for several years in the textile industry developing products before going on my own.
Though my fascination for art began much earlier. Since I was a little girl, I adored brand new color pencils and drawing in my note books everyday. I still remember my favourite blanket and the fabrics of the dresses that my mother used to make for me and for my dolls. I also remember the beautiful wallpapers of the rooms I used to play in.
Many years later, I discovered surface design which magically includes everything I always wanted to do! Drawing, painting and creating are still my favourite games.
Nowadays, I believe that textiles are the skins that we choose, not only for ourselves but also for our homes. Textiles make our environment cozy and pleasing.
I like sketching with watercolors and markers, then I digitalized everything and turn it into patterns.
I love my work and I put in it all the lovely things that inspire and surround me.
Modern and colourful. Bold but yet feminine and romantic.
What I love?
The Wiener Secession.
The Beatles songs.
Magnolias and dahlias.
The smell of old books.
Michel Gondry films.
