In her fourth collection, Teresa Abrunhosa brought the sensuality of the 1980s back into fashion for spring-summer 2014.
The retro graphic prints and lines of sports cars mark Teresa Abrunhosa’s collection for the next warm season. The mixture of patterns, with a palette of colours in acid and vibrant tones, such as lime green, fuchsia and blues, confer a fun and young atmosphere to the collection.
The silhouette is tight and sensual, with an unexpected design which reveals the body in an unpredictable form. “I continued to work on the type of silhouette that I have been progressively developing because my brand involves sensual cuts and rather unexpected openings and so I persisted along these lines” the designer comments. “And in terms of the colours and prints, I rather followed the line of the 1980s, that type of graphism,” Teresa Abrunhosa notes, where she used materials like crepe and silk satin, with details in leather and sequins.
The designer, who did an internship with Pedro Pedro, started her professional path at the Faculty of Fine Arts of Porto University, where she graduated in Painting, although fashion was always part of her plans. “I have always been very interested in fashion. When I was doing the painting course, I participated in various competitions, such as Acrobactic and the Young Designers Competition, first in partnership with a friend and then alone,” she explains.
Currently, and also thanks to her presence at Bloom, she has grown in the world of fashion, particularly through her website “where I provide the looks and contacts for those wishing to buy,” Teresa Abrunhosa reveals, adding that she has also increasingly established contacts in international markets.
