In A Different Lens Nuno Abelho Fashion
Nuno Abelho is a new and upcoming Portuguese fashion designer from Elvas, Portugal. Nuno develops his collections from his broad interest in Music, the Human Body and Art History. These influences are perceptible in his designs, in terms of form and aesthetics. With many elements of Portuguese culture, it is also an imaginary journey through places, times and references of Portugal.
The garments are feminine, delicate and, as the designer points out, of timeless elegance. Nuno Abelho, suggests silhouettes of vintage inspiration, the predominating fibers that he works are silk, wool and cotton, in brocade and jacquard textures. His collections feature many details of craftsmanship such as embroideries and handmade finishes. The starting concept of each collection is based in music and the movement of the human body wearing the clothes.
About one year ago, Nuno started learning photography to capture his own designs and express his interests in fine art and the human form. This editorial features images taken by him.
Right now Nuno's goal is to keep learning about photography and work in his studio to produce 'one of a kind' pieces for his costumers. His last fashion show was two years ago. He is planning a collection for a new show this year. Nuno's designs can be bought from Goodgrife Boutique, which is based in Lisbon. You can follow Nuno Abelho on his website and Instagram.
