Born on 8 October 1967 in Venezuela, Hannibal Laguna grew up watching the work of his parents at «Donetta Venezolana», one of the most renowned children’s fashion factories in the 80s. In 1982, he moved to Europe where he studied tailoring in Milan and chose fashion creation as his means of professional expression.

In 1987, he began his solo career opening his first prêt-à-porter point of sale. But, it was not until 1990 when he made his debut on the Pasarela Cibeles catwalk, introducing his collections into the best multi-brand boutiques in Spain and thus paving the way to the most important distinguishing marks of his track record has been his ability to combine perfectly the attainment and creation of trademark licenses with the expansion and development of his own ateliers and couture collections.

The Hannibal Laguna Brides international line for Pronovias; Hannibal Laguna Bijoux; the Communion Fashion collection for Marla Española; Hannibal Laguna Grooms for Protocolo; the Hannibal Laguna shoe and accessory collection, and the «Marie Claire 100 years» collection are perfect examples of this coexistence.

Since 1997 to the present day, he has shown his couture bridal collections at Pasarela Gaudí Novias in Barcelona. In 1998, he began his relationship with Cibeles, a collaboration which, after several years at the BCN Fashion Week, he has renewed once again with the showing of his «Too Cherry» collection at ratified with One & Only at Pasarela Cibeles (September 2007).

He has collaborated in national and international fashion projects for major firms such as L’Oreal and Palmolive and his interesting involvement in the following exhibitions is noteworthy: «Art and fashion» (Valencia, Valmontone, La Havana and Saint Petersburg); «Passion. Spanish design» (Madrid, Salamanca, Chicago and Berlin); «Behind the looking glass. Spanish fashion» (Madrid); «31 twists to a bag» (Madrid and Valencia) and «Barbie fashion icon»’ (Madrid).

She's been doing it for years, and she did it once again for Resort in a collection that was inspired by the interiors at legendary decorator David Hicks' Paris shop. The silhouettes, too, will be familiar to Sui fans: forties-style frocks, peasant-style tunic tops, and empire-waist maxi dresses, in floral, Pop, and Deco prints. In addition to reprises of old hits (the cherry print that was a favorite last Resort is back as a full fruit bowl), there were a few new forays (like a great lace safari jacket or a series of Lurex knits). But all in all, it's all very Anna; this much-loved designer doesn't bother to chase fads. That said, the fact that current trends are aligning with Sui's way of doing things could bring fresh eyes to her work.
