I started working in fashion since my first year studying Fashion Design, in 2006. I began freelancing as a backstage assistant on the runways at Fashion Rio and as a fashion editorial assistant at the magazine Inesquecível Casamento. I also started developing prints and illustrations for amazing brands like Tidsy and Oz.
In my senior year in the University I created my own fashion label with a colleague named Soul Teen, for kids/teens and at the same time, I started working as an intern with the amazing designer Carlos Tufvesson, a great known Brazilian name in fashion. After three months I was the main designer creating side by side with him. My work involved all parts of fashion creation, since the idea, the development and the final product. I was responsible for the collection, accessories, drawings for the haute couture clients, brides and the look book. I had also the opportunity to assist in the planning and developing of window displays, e-flyers, invitations, marketing, sales and work at the backstage of the fashion shows and the models. A great learning process. From 2007 to 2010 we had two runways in Fashion Rio, both very acclaimed by the fashion industry.
In 2011 I went to NY to study and work. I spent a year between courses at FIT, working as an intern at Alex & Eli developing technical sketches and travelling. While I was crossing the U.S. by car I began to study film and editing.
Returning to Brazil in 2012 I started my own video company called Wonderland, specialized in weddings. In five years we had more than 200 videos that have been watched in over 140 countries.
I was the editor-in-chief and one of the filmmakers. As co-founder, I was also responsible for marketing and administration.
In 2018 we decided to close this chapter in our lives and move to Europe. We started in the south of France, then moved to Amsterdam and now we live in London, in love with our beautiful Crystal Palace.
