This year has proven one of Netflix’s strongest in years. They have churned out more original content than one could ever have predicted and in one particular TV area, they have grown from strength to strength: design series.

Throughout 2019, Netflix has introduced viewers to the full and varied world of design, from the second season of Abstract: The Art of Design to Styling Hollywood’s glitzy, glamorous world.

And now, they are back with another stellar docu-series.

No Time for Shame, a six-part series following Argentinian fashion designer Santiago Artemis landed on the UK streaming site on Tuesday, November 19th. So, who is Santiago? Find out more about the star of the show here!

Who is Santiago?

Santiago Artemis is a 28-year-old fashion designer living and working in Buenos Aires, Argentina. He was born on September 7th, 1991 in Ushuaia. In episode 1 of the show, Santiago says:

I come from a very particular city because it’s the southernmost city. It’s literally the end of the world. And it built up my personality and my character.

Santiago got his start in the industry studying at Escuela Argentina de Mod in the country’s capital.

Following this, Santiago honed his craft at FADU, which is the architecture and design faculty of the University of Buenos Aires. Here he studied pattern-making and pattern development.

Since graduating, Santiago has come to be known as one of the country’s most exciting designers to watch, thanks to his luxurious and experimental style. He has won both the FACIF International Fur Contest and SAGA Furs Scandinavia back in 2015.
