Profile

Trained in Fashion Design in Brazil before embarking on the MA Costume Design for Performance at LCF. My work focuses on developing textile through embodiment of peculiar elements in order to tell a story. I have also great interest in garment and performance technology, which tend to become important aspects of my creations and professional endeavours. I have worked in opera, film, theatre and dance productions in Brazil and London.
