Ada made her catwalk debut to an international audience at London Fashion Week in September 09 at Vauxhall Fashion Scout’s “Ones to Watch” show.
Ada interned with Alexander McQueen before going on to study at the London College of Fashion where she attained a 1st class BA (Hons) in womenswear and was selected for the prestigious LCF centenary press show at the Royal Academy. While studying, Ada interned for Jonathan Saunders.
Once graduated, Ada worked on various freelance projects including: the Centre for Sustainable Fashion’s first Shared Talent Project in South Africa and creating product for Oxfam’s first boutique. She then went on to set up her own company in early 2008 after working for Gareth Pugh.
Since establishing the company, Ada Zanditon has created the visionary album and tour wardrobe for Patrick Wolf along with commissions for Bishi, Robots in Disguise and Stephanie O’Brien of the Puppini Sisters. Ebony Bones is also a fan of Ada’s designs. Notably, Ada has been placed in The Observer’s top 50 of the Courvoisier future 500’s latest intake.
In late 2009 Ada was selected for the Estethica eco fashion mentoring program by the British Fashion Council. Working with her mentor Bev Malik supports her continued practice and the development of her much awaited AW2010 collection. Ada is proud to announce Gleeds as the principle sponsor. The collection will be shown at London Fashion Week in February. Ada will also exhibit at Esthetica during London Fashion week and at Rendez Vous Femme, Paris in early March.
