Violeta Villacorta's membership in the world family has cultivated a designer with a remarkably eclectic vision. She sees our differences as something to embrace, to learn from and to respect. As these differences are what create harmony in the world.

Her clothes have been featured in national and international magazines. She has been interviewed on television in the U.S. and Europe; and has dressed luminaries in the music and film industry. Violeta Villacorta has also showed her collection at MOCA Geffen Museum in Los Angeles during Fashion Week.

She is currently working on a creative design project in collaboration with indigenous communities in the Amazon, to promote their arts and crafts by incorporating their millenary work into contemporary designs as a means to generate a sustainable economy for the stewards of the most biodiverse ecosystem.

Watch the video about the project in the Cofán Community, Ecuadorian Amazon. Designer Violeta Villacorta is collaborating with Cofán artisans to promote their arts and crafts as a source for a sustainable economy for the community, a rich culture and people who live in harmony with Mother Nature.

The funds collected in July covered the building of the Cofán Dureno Arts & Crafts Center, tools for the artisans, laptops, and development of accessories and crafts.
