Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida
This is the AW2011 collection of a Portuguese collaboration between Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida. I love their story as much as I adore this work. They met whilst enrolling for Fashion School in Portugal, from which they both graduated with distinction in 2007. In 2009 they moved to London and gained industry experience working for Vivienne Westwood/ Anglomania (Marta) and Preen (Paulo). In 2009 they both started the MA fashion course at London Central St Martins. Having just graduated, this is their first collection. I found them in the wonderful magazine TANK.
