Cravo Studios is a fashion brand founded by Carolina Moreira and Nadezhda Valchanova. Carolina grew up in Portugal and Nadezhda in Bulgaria. Their paths crossed during their academic journeys in the United Kingdom, where they specialized in Menswear Design. They found a mutual passion: exploring narratives through clothing, representing and honoring their roots. The designers decided to create a brand that reinterprets past political and cultural narratives, building a message adapted to the present world.
A LOVE STORY TO YOU
Cravo’s first collection ‘’A Love Story To You” aims to honour the ones that fought for our freedom.
On April 25, 1974, a mutiny in the Portuguese army put an end to five decades of dictatorship. This movement showed the working class fighting for their freedom and wrote a story that shaped the Portuguese community until the very present day. Cravo’s main focus is to honour Portuguese people, telling a story through every garment.
Cravo’s mission is to contribute to traditions by keeping them alive, recreating and adapting them for the new generations to come.
