Born and based in Lisbon, Constança Entrudo graduated from Central Saint Martins in 2017 with a BA in Textile Design. She has worked as a designer for Balmain, Peter Pilotto and Marques'Almeida.
For her SS19 collection she held her first catwalk show in Lisbon Fashion Week and quickly gained notoriety for her deconstructed woven fabrics that result from a process which involves bonded recycled threads. Known for combining handmade fabrics and bold graphic prints, Constança Entrudo has attracted attention from the likes of Suzy Menkes, who cited her fabrics as “high quality of handwork” on Vogue UK and many other press. All her pieces are created in accordance with her belief that making clothes is about the way we reuse flat fabric to a 3D figure form of the human body.
Constança Entrudo was the winner of The Who’s Next Prize last September in Lille, France.
THE WORLD WE LIVE IN: PART II
"The World we live in: Part II" begins in the series of articles with the same name, published in Life Magazine during the 1950s. These images of nature are obviously explored in the prints, but they expand in the incorporation of Madeira embroidery and in the influences of the Brazilian Tropicália movement. At the same time that the poetry of Caetano Veloso's voice soothes us, Constança Entrudo confronts the viewer with reflections on sustainable regeneration, in a Fall/Winter 2021/22 collection of details that elevates the Designer’s aesthetics of textile manipulation and upcycling. Night and day live, in contrast, in the same piece; and there are tapestries, tweed, patchwork and transparencies, in this vibrant exploration of new territory.
