Our story

Our Story

From a very young age, a needle and thread has formed part of our designer’s story. Her mother – a dressmaker – showed her the secrets and magic enclosed in her workshop when Silvia was just a child, and she was brought up surrounded by fabrics, patterns, needles, and a love of a craftsmanship that has continued to grow throughout the years.
Sometime later she moved to Madrid to study Advertising, working for several years as a fashion model, modelling on catwalks for Pedro del Hierro, Petro Valverde, YSL and Karl Lagerfield.
Yet the world of bridal fashion appeared at a later stage of her life, starting with her own wedding. In her search for the perfect dress, she could not identify with any of the bridal trends at that time, nor find a dress which could reflect her own character: a moment of revelation that it was practically impossible for a bride to free herself from standards imposed by others, and find a dress that truly reflects her own essence.
After 20 years in the bridal sector, Silvia Fernández Álvarez has brought to life her dream of creating something truly unique under her self-named brand. Honesty, approachability, simplicity and expertise are the defining features of each and every piece from this designer, and of SFA itself.
Silvia Fernández Atelier was born focused in the love for the details, the passion about a job well done and the hope if sewing each bride’s dreams and be part of their special day.
Back to basics, from our Atelier in El Bierzo, our team work hard with one thing in mind, make every brides’ dream come true. High quality dresses and an unique design to reflect the identity of each one of our brides and to stay in their memory forever.
