I’ve mentioned several times in this blog the brand V!TOR with which I’ve worked with from September 2012 until last August, the 13th. Tomorrow, it will have been a month since I left and sadly it’s been a way messier break-up than I had anticipated.
It really does break my heart to leave a project I put so much love, time and effort into and that made me so creatively happy, but some things are just beyond acceptable and we all have our limits.
Right now, I’m not sure if I should disclose any more details regarding my departure from the brand and I wish I could give people a certainty of what will happen to V!TOR, but I honestly have no clue. I’m doing whatever is in my power to cover my back right now and figure out the best way to fix the damage that has been done.
I would also like to somehow celebrate all the great projects I’ve done throughout this year, with so many amazing artists and collaborators.
Here’s some of them!
All the promo videos can be seen here, totally worth a peek! For some reason, WordPress won’t let me embed videos from Vimeo, but you should definitely click this link and check out all the video goodies!
Filmed and edited by the greatly talented Vasco Mendes, Bruno Sousa, Mário Costa and Fábio Mota. Featuring Throes+The Shine, Loli, Daniela Love, Vitor Ramalhão, Jackie, Supa and Tania from Thug Unicorn, Onio and Alice. A huge thank you to each and every one of them.
Gustavo Carreiro did an awesome intro for the runway show at Lisboa Fashion Week, and you can see it here – 30 seconds of holy madness!
Karen Klink worked her magic on this collection’s prints with her wonderful illustrations.
Teresa Q also did wonders with her camera, photographing Gabriela and Ed for an interview we did for Parq Magazine.

It was great working with Ricardo Almeida, the gorgeous Maria João and Arthur Jacob with Carolina‘s splashes of fabulosity on the lookbook. Ana CMYK did an wonderful job with the catalog (looks like a sticker album, adorbz!) and Mr. Phomer made our stand look supa cute at Pure London.
Also, Diogo Jesus/RUDOLFO did the kick-ass illustrations for two of the prints of this collection and his work is jaw-dropping in general.
The girls at Weekend Barber also did two pairs of special prototypes to go with this collection, and they are pretty far out.
A huuuuuge thank you to all the people I’ve worked with and all the wonderful people I’ve met this year through V!TOR.
We’ve created plenty of wonderful things together and maybe we will work again soon! ♥
