ModaLisboa S/S18 – #LUZ! Lisbon based jewellery designer Valentim Quaresma expresses creativity through fashion and art. His new SS18 collection CARNAL is inspired by thoughts, feelings, and sensations. The guts of attraction and determination, strength and power. The fusion of lust and romanticism in an oriental environment. He studied in the School of arts António Arroio and in Ar.co’s Jewellery department. He worked with Ana Salazar, the pioneer of Portuguese fashion, creating jewellery and accessories for her collections from 1990 to 2010. In 2008 he wins the prize “Accessories collection of the Year” in the international competition ITS#7 in Trieste – Italy, and starts his own brand.
Since then, Valentim Quaresma has been presenting his own collections internationally in events like Bread and Butter Barcelona, 080 Barcelona Fashion, [moment] in Riga, Fashionclash Maastricht in The Netherlands, Cesis Fashion Art festival in Latvia, Bijorhca in Paris, MoBa13 “Fetishism in Fashion” in Arnhem, and Manupulating Surface – Portuguese Craftmanship in London, just to name a few. www.valentimquaresma.com
