Constança Entrudo is a portuguese born textile designer based in Paris.
Immediately after graduating from her BA Textile Design at Central Saint Martins, Constança Entrudo launched her label in 2017 with a Spring Summer 18 presentation at Lisbon Fashion Week. Recently she has moved to Paris to work for Balmain as well as on her own label.
All of Constança’s pieces are gender neutral and ageless. They aim to highlight that her approach to creation is based on the freedom to have ideas, unconstrained by any pre-existing rules or framework and to be able to make them realities through the process of research and experimentation.
I DON’T KNOW IF THIS EXISTS is the first performance-based commission at Lisbon Fashion Week centering on human body culture in relationship with painting, sculpture, sound and fashion. In a scenographic and sensory multimedia installation, Constança Entrudo explores the concept of Illusion as a premonition of a reality that does not yet exist in that form. The installation is activated by a series of live performances in which painted models inhabit the space and become living paintings. The result is a hybrid collection, where photographic prints appear like film stills through these themes of fragmentation and distortion and Ill-fitting layers, unfinished garments coming apart and irregular hemlines interact with the set design in an illusory and playful way.
