About the Designer

PAULNELSONESCH's picture

Paul is based in Figueira Da Foz, Portugal. He studied at University of Westminster, Harrow. His collections are produced in Portugal.

I am a Fashion Designer and Illustrator, living and working in Portugal. Originally from South Africa, I moved to England in 1992 and studied at the Berkshire College of Art and Design. I then moved to London where I attended the University of Westminster (Harrow) achieving a first class BA Honors Degree in Fashion Design.
I am currently working on my own label as well as doing freelance fashion illustration work.
My designs are inspired by everything around me and anything that interests me, from music, books, films, pop culture etc. Not obvious ideas, I prefer design references that are obscure where you need to think. Once I have an idea I research it until I know everything about that subject and then I try to create a feel for that idea in my designs and illustrations. I almost want the wearer of my clothes to never know the inspiration behind the pieces, it must be that subtle.
It is all about angles and cuts.
The clothing in my collections are all Designed, Cut and Handmade and made to order by me. I use only the best quality materials in the construction of my garments.
