Meet the Founder


SHIRLANKA was created by Shirley Gutierrez, a Colombian-born former architect with a cultivated international sense of style. 

Before breaking into fashion, Shirley spent over 15 years expressing her love for design as an architect. Her background in architecture has been a valuable asset and key influence in developing SHIRLANKA’s brand’s style, culture and space.

Shirley has always believed that “fashion is not about trends, labels or brands, it’s about self-expression and the style you choose to live by: your DNA. It should be a fun, uplifting experience to not only look great, but feel great”.  

Handpicked by Shirley, the SHIRLANKA closet offers women a carefully curated collection of authentic and versatile statement pieces.
