Couture Designer Jorge Manuel: ‘Lovella is not a space, it is an experience’

It all began with a visit to couture designer Jorge Manuel’s personally designed factory and design headquarters in Miami last November. After witnessing the efficient and organized space that was at the same time stylish and conducive to creation, we had to tap him to design our new luxury salon.
