Andrea Espinoza, Founder & CEO
Andrea is a Canadian-Ecuadorian designer based in Edmonton, Alberta. Growing up an orphan and raised by an entrepreneurial family in Ecuador, she started her first jewellery business at age 7 and her social and volunteering work at age 12. By the age of 21, she had travelled the world and explored different industry verticals—runway, law, aviation, modelling, and styling to name a few.
After working for four years as a fine jewellery designer for a luxury Canadian company, she gained an expert understanding of the jewellery creation process, from design to production. Combined with her education in business administration, metalsmithing, and fashion design, her own company was born, Epico Designs. Today, she styles celebrities for red-carpet events and her designs are worn by Jessie Reyez, Pragati Guruprasad, Christy Buss, Michelle Hurd, Patrik Simpson, Kate Linder and many more.
