SW | ABOUT | SANDRA WEIL
For more than 12 years, fashion has been my way of discovering the world, expressing myself and relating to people around the world. #sandraweil is a life project that was born from the deepest bottom of my heart with the purpose of expressing my artistic vision through fashion.
I discovered that clothing has a powerful and profound capacity to make us feel good. All my designs are created to translate the personality of those who wear them, to highlight their creative power and the energy and strength of each woman. I’m sure that no matter how we use fashion, it can be a great healer. We believe that in this way we create a better world, a world that vibrates in love.
From evening gowns and cocktail wear to casual garments for the city and the beach, Sandra Weil has always been characterized by the versatility of its looks and how they can be taken from day to night.
All designs are created to embody the personality of the wearer, to highlight their creative power, and the energy and strength of every woman.
Her creations always aim to be cherished pieces, with multiple uses and capable of withstanding the pressure of passing trends.
We have been growing organically, thanks to this shared vision with all those who collaborate in this process of creating clothes.
Our company has always been involved in different social projects in a conscious and reserved way. Today we understand that this work becomes even more relevant for our community, which excites us a lot!
Nature is our main source of inspiration, with natural phenomena being the most frequent in her creative universe. We believe in sustainability, fair trade, and seeking to have a positive impact on the world by providing employment to fashion artisans.
Sandra Weil is committed to creating a diverse environment and is proud to be an equal opportunity employer. We hire great people from a wide variety of backgrounds, not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because it makes our company stronger. We continually celebrate the diverse community different individuals cultivate.
We have been overcoming the adversities under a mantra:
Be the change you wish to see.
The only constant in life is change
Since it was first launched in 2012, luxury womenswear brand Sandra Weil [vyle] quickly established itself as a major player in the creative map of Mexico and Latin America.
Her collections always begin from the same starting point: the soul of the garments, the fabric that gives life to unexpected silhouettes conceived for contemporary women. Furthermore, being able to share the stories & emotions that can be told through the collections, and in return, the way that SW women use them to express themselves & to be who they truly are.
Weil was born in Peru, in a multicultural family that traces its roots to Turkey, Germany, Brazil, and Romania. Her passion for fashion and design was transmitted to her in childhood while spending days at her grandmother’s sewing workshop. With her mind set on creating, she naturally designed her first garment. This piece eventually became an object of desire among her client’s circle. After, she went on to study Visual Arts with a major in Graphic Design at the Pontifical Catholic University of Peru and then enrolled at the University Felicidad Ducé in Barcelona, where she specialized in Haute Couture.
After she concluded her studies, she moved to Mexico City in 2008. Her entrepreneurial spirit was fostered in this place and in 2012 she launched her first ready-to-wear collection.
Two years later, in 2014, Sandra Weil opened its flagship store on Emilio Castelar 185, Polanco in Mexico City.
2022 was a year of expansion and evolution. This year we got the opportunity to welcome our brand new stores in Merida, Monterrey and of course our Flagship Store in Mexico City, located in Horacio 907, Polanco.
