About

Hello there and thanks for the visit!  If you stumbled across this site don’t leave just yet. I’m delighted you popped by so why not staying a little longer to see what I’ve been doing lately!

I’m a Lisbon-born Fashion Designer, currently based in Edinburgh. I’ve always had an enormous passion for fashion and dressmaking, but Portugal’s economic landscape (and the 90s mindset) led me to pursue a degree in European Studies with a view to safe employment during uncertain times.  Who would have thought that all those years studying hard and all I wanted to do was design and sew my time away (sorry mum and dad)!?!

Times have changed and so have I, literally and geographically. Arriving in Scotland in 2012 has made me realise a new vista of opportunities. Brexit on the horizon was the “kick” I needed to finally get serious.

The Fashion Design course has now concluded and the anxiety to create, to share ideas and to seek inspiration is now uncontrollable. Environmental concerns aren’t ignored and this is reflected in my work. I will weave together different cultures, people and of course, climates! 

This is my space to share unique designs from this seemingly jarring combination of different regions with you.  In addition to fashion design you will get a feel for some of the tastes and aromas that influence my inspiration.  A sartorial experience combining visual, olfactory and taste senses.
