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.
In THE GARDEN OF FORKING PATHS, a collection made possible by the support of Discover Madeira and Trimalhas, Constança Entrudo invites you to explore her hometown - the idyllic Madeira Islands - where she has always drawn inspiration from. Focusing on iconic pieces, she allows herself to experiment with innovative materials; using melting prints that appear through these themes of fragmentation and distortion; using her signature unfinished woven fabrics coming apart which interact with handmade ceramic buttons (a collaboration with ceramist Vasco Futscher).
