Projects

Here you will find a selection of old and new projects within clothing, jewellery and arts. Discover more about each project through the images below. Some pieces are available for acquisition. Check our shop!

Wear/Wear

A verb with two meanings, wear is to experience garments on the body as well as the expression of time. This project explores these two spaces for designing embedded surprises.

Light

When I was 6 years old, my friend Vivian had a t-shirt that changed colour when she was playing outside under the sun. Could we experience that excitement also as adults?

Dress (v.)

Dress, as a verb, is a practice-based research project where visual notation on dress movements inform the forms for pattern cutting.

For What it's Worth

How can we highlight human labour on a garment? This series explores the lines sewn by seamstresses and takes them as lines for drawings.

MA

While reading a book on japanese designers I came across the concept of MA. It struck me, that the space between the wearer and the clothes could be a dynamic one.

Curtains

An exhibition space with curtains. Invited by curator Marina Noronha, I built curtains for the Hessel Museum in NY.

Brita

Necklaces made of construction stone brittles, perforated and 14k gold plated. They come in a wooden box.

1.1.1/11

One month, one week and one day. Eleven trips between Rio de Janeiro and Belo Horizonte. To a life muse, a clothing collection as an ode. An in memorium project to my grandmother.

TNWMLC

TNWMLC is not your keyboard layout. Created by super cool researcher Martin Krzywinski, TNWMLC served as inspiration for a clothing project.

TNWMLC Jewellery

An old 1956 Smith Corona was transformed into necklaces with antique jewellery parts. Each piece is unique.

Generator

Computer generated 'distorted' patters are the starting point for this clothing project. Based on a software developed together with programmer Luis Castilho.

Continuum

Project developed with the great Maja Mehle in Slovenia. Continuum is a dress that does not have one final form.

Since 2004 I have been working within the field of fashion either in the industry, academy or as an independent designer. A selection of some works in the industry are presented below. To get to know more about each brand, I recommend checking out their webpages.

Printing

Couldn't have a better start as a fashion designer. Between 2006 and 2009 I worked at the petit couture brand Printing from Belo Horizonte with grand learnings from Marcia Queiroz.
