Valentim Quaresma expresses creativity through fashion and art. He studied in the School of arts António Arroio and in Ar.co’s Jewellery department. He worked with Ana Salazar, the pioneer of Portuguese fashion, creating jewellery and accessories for her collections from 1990 to 2010.
In 2008, he won the prize "Accessories collection of the Year" in the international competition ITS#7 in Trieste - Italy, and started his own brand.
Since then, Valentim Quaresma has been presenting his own collections internationally in events like Bread and Butter Barcelona, 080 Barcelona Fashion, [moment] in Riga, Fashionclash Maastricht in The Netherlands, Cesis Fashion Art festival in Latvia, Bijorhca in Paris, MoBa13 "Fetishism in Fashion" in Arnhem, and Manupulating Surface - Portuguese Craftmanship in London, just to name a few.
With his FW 11/12 collection, "Alchemy", which was shown at Mude (Museum of Fashion and Design), he integrates the ModaLisboa's official calendar.
Valentim lives and works in Lisbon.
The FW 20/21 collection has neither a starting point nor a source of inspiration. The creative process for this collection arises from the fusion of the books Valentim Quaresma read, the films he saw, the conversations he had, the trips he made and the characters he dreamed of, feeding his subconscious to create an unreal imaginary, where the proposals presented dialogue with the obsession of recording information in a utopian science fiction environment.
