Marques Almeida is having one of those everywhere moments. Everywhere around the London catwalks editors are wearing items from their distinctive autumn collection of primary colour shearling shrugs, Lurex shot denim bell-bottoms and loose slouchy jeans with their signature frayed edge which is being referenced by designers across the world....
Marques'Almeida is the London based womenswear label created by Marta Marques and Paulo Almeida. Both from Portugal, they met while enrolling for Fashion School in Portugal, from which they both graduated with distinction in 2007. Internships and international competitions followed graduation and Paulo also worked temporarily as a menswear designer. They moved to London in 2009 where they gain industry experience at Vivienne Westwood/Anglomania (Marta) and Preen (Paulo). In 2009 they both started the acclaimed Fashion MA at Central Saint Martins and finally start working as a duo. They have recently completed the MA showcasing their first collection at London Fashion Week A/W 20011. This collection reflects the cool, undone, effortless design aesthethic that they set themselves to follow in the next seasons.
