i am a architect fashion designer. I live today between Portugal and the Netherlands, working on a un-going research and new ideas and productions. I like to work with structures, to give form to objects according to the material and context.
Career history / Company history:
I had my B.A from the Fashion department of the Faculty of Architecture at the Technical University of Lisbon in 2002. In the same year co-founded Krv Kurva and developed the La.ga bag a project which traveled around the world throughout exhibitions, publications and stores.
The simplicity, sustainability and social concerns which lied behind my work brought me back to the academic realm where I furthered studies in 2005 at the Masters program "Man and Humanity" at the Design Academy Eindhoven. Throughout those two years I developed projects where the individual well being became my main concern. In 2007 I undertook a research about the consumption of clothing which developed into a project called "Elementum" which requestions the fundamentals behind fashion and identity.
